Published 9:55 pm Thursday, April 4, 2019
In a game that was wisely moved up to beat the wet weather, the Loyd Star Hornets (10-8) had no problem with the Amite County Trojans (0-12) in a 12-0 win Wednesday.
Seniors Dylan Case and Logan Smith led the 14-hit attack with a pair of base hits each. Logan Smith and Dane Smith each hit a double for coach Jared Britt. Wyatt Hodges, James Beard, Riley Easterling, Harrison Hux, Casen DeHart, Stephen Mills and Austin Case all hit safely for LS. Easterling, Hux, Case and Dane Smith each had two RBIs apiece.
Dane Smith picked up the win on the mound by striking out five and giving up one hit in two innings. Freshman Dawson Hester came in to pitch the final two innings and did not allow a hit while striking out two.
Loyd Star is scheduled to host Wesson Saturday at 1 p.m. The Hornets conclude their region schedule next week with a home game Tuesday against West Lincoln and a return game at WL Friday.
