Cardinals dominate DeSoto Academy

The Potts Camp Cardinals got in one game during a wet week and coasted to a 15-run victory.

Coach Dustin Minor’s team scored 10 runs in the second inning on its way to a 16-1 win over DeSoto County Academy Tuesday, March 27.

The Cardinals upped their season record to 7-4.

Devin Sanders had a triple and two runs-batted-in during the big second inning.

Landon Houston had a single and two RBIs in that inning. Also getting a hit each in the second were Caleb Holmes, Nicholas Nichols and Devonta Pegues as Potts Camp pulled away from the opponent.

Others getting one hit each in the victory were Jase Aldridge, who had a double, Ty Bolden, Dylan Minor and Connor Skelton, all with a single.

Kalif Alford started on the mound and got the win. Others pitching in the game for Potts Camp were Minor, Alex Hawkins and Marterrian Donnell.

They faced only 15 DeSoto batters in four innings and as a group recorded seven strikeouts.

Scheduled games versus Falkner and Thrasher last week were postponed due to rain.

The Cardinals hosted Tremont on Monday of this week and visited Hickory Flat Tuesday. They will host H.W. Byers Thursday at 5 p.m. and host Hickory Flat Friday at 5 p.m. Next Tuesday, April 10, they visit Myrtle at 5 p.m.
