Lafayette Commodores

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)

                  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)
