Lafayette Commodores

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)
