County rivals: Cards dominate Lions
By BARRY BURLESON
Potts Camp had a busy week on the baseball diamond, including a win over cross-county rival H.W. Byers.
On Monday of last week, the Cardinals scored in every inning as they dominated the Lions 23-3.
Potts Camp, playing on the road, had 19 hits. Byers managed just four hits and committed four errors.
Leading the Cards from the batter’s box were Ray Maxey and Zane Looney with four hits each. Maxey had a triple. Looney knocked in five runs.
Dylan Minor had three hits.
Getting two each were Kevin Harris, Josh Bonds and Morgan Moore. Bonds had three RBIs.
Minor picked up the mound victory. In five innings of work, he struck out eight and walked one.
Justin Sellers had two hits for the Lions.
The same county rivals hooked up again Friday at Potts Camp. However, the game was postponed in the fifth inning, due to thunderstorms, with Byers leading 7-6. It will be finished at a later date.
The Cardinals fell at Strayhorn, 11-3, on Tuesday of last week.
The Mustangs jumped ahead 4-0 early and led 7-3 going into the sixth, when they scored four more to secure the win.
Potts Camp had just one hit, that coming from Michael Hendrix, and made eight errors in the field.
Pitchers for the Cards included Moore, Bonds and Dillon Day. Combined, they gave up only four hits, walked five and struck out eight.
The Cardinals (2-11) hosted West Tallahatchie Tuesday. They will host a pair of games Saturday – noon versus Alcorn Central and 4 p.m. vs. Myrtle. They go to Coahoma County next Tuesday, April 8, at 5 p.m.
