Mack Bishop

Late error dooms Commodores in Game 1

HOUSTON — It had been a clean game for the Lafayette High baseball team until its first error of the night cost the Commodores Game 1 of the MHSAA Class 4A North Half championship series. Houston defeated the Commodores, 2-1, in eight innings when Ryan Holland made an errant throw to second base allowing the Hilltoppers to score and take a 1-0 lead in the series. (May 13, 2015, Page 7)

Coker’s HR wins Game 1 for ‘Dores

CLEVELAND — Once again, Lafayette was down to not only its final out but its final strike of the game this postseason, and once again, the Commodore offense snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat. Chase Coker hit a three-run home run in the seventh inning and Austin Arrington shut down Cleveland for a 7-5 win. The Commodores took Game 1 of the best-of-three quarterfinal series of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Tuesday night at Cleveland High School. (May 6, 2015, Page 2B)

Bishop’s gem give LHS series lead on Knights

In a game where scoring was hard to come by, Mack Bishop never let West Lauderdale come close. Lafayette’s junior southpaw hurled a two-hitter, and the Commodores came up with just enough offense to claim a 2-0 victory over the Knights at W.V. Brewer Field on Wednesday to take a 1-0 lead in the teams’ MHSAA Class 4A second-round playoff series. Lafayette (21-5) will try to eliminate the defending state champion in Game 2 tonight at 7 at West Lauderdale. A third and decisive game would be played Friday at Lafayette if needed. (April 30, 2015, Page 6)

LHS cruises to playoff sweep of Yazoo City

Lafayette’s offense was slow to get going. It didn’t matter much the way Eli Murphree and Mack Bishop were throwing. The Commodores’ top two pitchers dealt from the start as the offense worked to find its rhythm late, and Lafayette swept Yazoo City out of the Class 4A playoffs Tuesday at W.V. Brewer Field. Lafayette won the first game of a doubleheader, 11-1, in five innings before taking the nightcap, 8-1. (April 24, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

‘Dores win 2-4A title with walk-off against Ripley

The Lafayette High baseball team has extra-inning games just about figured out. After beating Senatobia in eight innings Friday, the Commodores took it a little further Tuesday night at W.V. Brewer Field.  The Commodores defeated the Ripley Tigers, 5-4, to cap off Senior Night with a walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth inning when senior Hunter Bishop hit an RBI single, bringing pinch-runner Xavier Martin home from second. (April 15, 2015, Page 1B)

Oxford tops ‘Dores with walk-off

Baseball’s version of the Crosstown Classic took center stage Thursday night as Oxford hosted crosstown rival Lafayette at Edwin Moak Field where the Chargers came away the victor in a 2-1 win.  Oxford (10-0) got a timely hit from pitcher Houston Roth in the bottom of the seventh inning scoring first baseman Jack McClure and giving the Chargers the walk-off win over the Commodores (5-4). (March 20, 2015, Page 2B)

BASEBALL PREVIEW: Depth, versatility lead ‘Dores into new campaign

Twenty wins. A division championship. A deep postseason run.

Those accomplishments made the Lafayette High baseball team’s 2014 season a success, but the Commodores’ ultimate goal of an MHSAA Class 4A state title was cut short when they were bounced from the playoffs by eventual champion West Lauderdale.
