Lafayette senior pitcher Cody Grey punctuated his standout season with a shutout over Byhalia on Tuesday night.
Grey improved to 7-0 on the year as the Commodores rolled past the Indians, 12-0 in five innings, at W.V. Brewer Field. Grey logged three innings of work and finished with four strikeouts and no hits.
Hunter Robison also pitched and had four strikeouts in 1.1 innings of work, while Kent Hill had two strikeouts in his lone inning. The Commodores had another good night at the plate as they collected 12 hits. Luke Stanley, Robison, Josh Mills and Hill all had multiple hits in the win.
Mills led the team with four RBIs, while Tyler Mize and Hill each drove in two runs apiece. One of Robison’s hits was a triple, while Reed Davis collected a double. LHS got off to an early lead in the game by scoring 10 runs in the bottom of the first.
The Commodores (20-4 overall, 9-1 in Region 2-4A play) earned a No. 2 seed in the upcoming 4A playoffs and will host Kosciusko on Friday night at 7.
A second game will be played in Kosciusko on Saturday at 3 p.m.
“It was an amazing year. I think playing to start the playoffs is a good thing because maybe we will stay hot. We’ve been swinging the bats well,” LHS coach Greg Lewis said. (April 20, 2011, Page 2B)
