Lafayette’s 5-4 loss to North Pontotc at W.V. Brewer Field boiled down to not producing enough offense during the course of the game. While the Commodores scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh, and had two runners in scoring position with the chance to win the game, not scoring runs in the first six frames came back to haunt them.
North Pontotoc starter Trey Jolly consistently kept the Commodores off balance at the plate with one pitch, his fastball. Jolly logged the complete-game win and went deep into his pitch count to do it. He threw almost 130 pitches and had just enough juice on his fastball to garner two strikeouts in the final inning to garner the win.
