By BARRY BURLESON
The Byhalia Indians won four of five games last week, improving to 9-5 overall and 2-2 in District 2-4A play.
The Indians suffered their lone loss of the week on Monday – 10-2 to district opponent Lewisburg.
Byhalia mustered just one run in the second and one in the fifth.
Cory German had two hits – a double and a single. Adding one single each were Jalen Applewhite and Kyle Seymour.
Pat Malone was the losing pitcher.
Byhalia bounced back Tuesday of last week and beat Memphis-Area Home Education Association 8-1.
Tedrick Moore carried the big bat. He had three hits – a triple, a double and a single. Gary Calhoun and German added a double and a single each, while Kevin Fitzpatrick connected for a two-run homer.
Mitchell Cartwright and Charlie Lyles each had a single. Byhalia scored one run in the third, two in the fourth and five in the sixth.
Cartwright earned the mound win for the Indians.
The Indians then swept district foe Rosa Fort on Wednesday. They outscored the Lions 35-2 in the doubleheader.
Coach Bubba Brown said “everybody had a hit” in the twinbill. Byhalia took 19-1 and 16-1 wins with Justin Washington and Dakota Downs getting the pitching victories.
Cartwright, Malone and Fitzpatrick had home runs.
Byhalia ended the week with a 16-1 win over Holly Springs (see separate story).
The Indians hosted Center Hill Tuesday. They then go to Center Hill Friday for a 5 p.m. contest. Next Tuesday, April 13, Byhalia hosts Senatobia at 5 p.m.
“Every game from here on out, except one, is a division game,” Coach Brown said. “We have three weeks left in the regular season.”
