‘Dores’ postseason run ends with loss to Houston

The postseason magic ran out for the Lafayette High baseball team.  With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, there was not another dramatic comeback for the Commodores. Lafayette dropped Game 2 of the MHSAA Class 4A North Half championship series, 5-1, to Houston at W.V. Brewer Field Thursday night. (May 15, 2015, Page 6A)

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)

‘Dores want different result this time in 4A North Half

Four years ago, the Lafayette High baseball team competed in the MHSAA Class 4A North Half championship series against Lewisburg. The Commodores were swept by the Patriots and ousted from the playoffs. (May 11, 2015, Page 6)

Late call sends ‘Dores to 4A North Half finals

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)

LHS downs Knights in extras to advance

After a heartbreaking loss 24 hours earlier the Lafayette High baseball team had to try and flush it out of their memory and prepare for the deciding Game 3 between them and the West Lauderdale Knights Friday night. Much like Game 2 the Commodores and Knights traded punches and for the second straight time in as many days it took extra baseball for the series to be decided. Once all the dust settled it was Lafayette that was able to eliminate the defending 4A state champions with a walk-off 8-7 win in eight innings at W.V. Brewer Field. (May 3, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

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)

Lafayette rallies past Warriors to stay atop division

Hunter Bishop only had one thought on his mind. “Run as fast as you can,” Bishop said afterward. “Just run.” Bishop scored the game-winning run in Lafayette’s 6-5 win over Senatobia in extra innings Friday at W.V. Brewer Field, capping a rally from five runs down and helping the Commodores stay ahead in the race for the Division 2-4A championship. (April 12, 2015, Page 3B)
