Indians find second victory at Bulldog Bash
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
Rain pretty much caused every game on a Yazoo County baseball team’s schedule to be cancelled.
The lone exception was Yazoo City, who managed to get in a pair of games Wednesday afternoon at the Bulldog Bash Tournament at Riverside High School. The Indians earned their second victory of the season with a 12-1 victory over Indianola Gentry, but fell to Cleveland later in the day in a 3-2, extra-inning loss.
“We just left too many runners on base (against Cleveland),” Indians’ head coach Gerald Peyton said. “The defense played well, but the bats weren’t hitting the ball like they were supposed to.”
Freshman Darius Wright continued his stellar season with 11 strikeouts against Cleveland in a complete-game effort. Wright now has 36 strikeouts in just three appearances on the mound for Yazoo City.
The Indians took the early lead against Cleveland with two runs scored in the top of the first inning. The score would stay that way until the third inning thanks to Wright’s right arm.
