Whoever faces the Water Valley Blue Devils in the next round of the MHSAA Class 3A baseball playoffs take warning: You’re going to need a bigger boat.

LHS takes down Devils

Lafayette coach Greg Lewis knew his Commodores didn’t play their best against Oxford to start Saturday’s baseball fest at W.V. Brewer Field. Instead of changing the lineup drastically against Water Valley on Saturday night, Lewis decided to let his team work itself back into normal form.

The end result was a much better approach at the plate in a 15-5 win over the Blue Devils in five innings. (April 4, 2011, Page 7A)

Commodores extend winning streak to 10

Scoring a bunch of runs in two one-sided wins over Tunica-Rosa Fort on Tuesday at W.V. Brewer Field wasn’t the main thing on Lafayette baseball coach Greg Lewis’ mind. Although he was happy knowing that his team improved to 4-0 in the division with 15-0 and 19-0 wins over the Lions in a doubleheader, it was how his team has come together since the start of the year that Lewis was more pleased with.

Water Valley’s rally falls short

The Blue Devils looked like they were going to fall victim to the dreaded run rule Thursday evening against DeSoto Central.

Instead, it was a built-in time limit that eventually cut Water Valley’s monster rally just short as the Blue Devils fell to the Jaguars 11-10 after four innings at Edwin Moak Field on the final day of the annual Oxford Spring Break Tournament. (more…) (March 18, 2011, Page 8A)
