Baseball roundups: ACCS gets sweep of Columbia AcademyPublished 12:13am Saturday, March 31, 2012
COLUMBIA — Chris Carrell had quite the performance for Adams County Christian School Friday night at Columbia Academy, giving up four hits on the mound and tallying four hits at the plate.
And not to be outdone, Jake Brumfield hit his sixth home run of the season as the Rebels used a six-run fourth inning to pull away from Columbia Academy en route to an 11-1 win in an MAIS District 5-AA game.
The only run the Cougars scored off Carrell came in the bottom of the sixth inning which kept the Rebels from ending the game early by way of the 10-run rule. All four of the Cougars’ hits were singles.
Not so for ACCS. In addition to Brumfield’s home run, Carrell hit three doubles as he went 4-for-5, Tanner Martin was 2-for-3 with a double and Brandon Ross had a double. As a team, the Rebels had 11 total hits and took advantage of four Columbia Academy errors.
ACCS (14-4-1) plays at Trinity Episcopal next Tuesday with the junior varsity game at 5 p.m. and the varsity game at 7 p.m.
Brookhaven Academy 10,
Trinity Episcopal 0
BROOKHAVEN — Gunner Ard held Trinity Episcopal to just one hit in five shutout innings and Hunter Franklin belted two doubles as the Brookhaven Academy Cougars rolled past the Saints in five innings in MAIS District 5-AA action Friday night.
Franklin ended up going 3-for-4 on the night and Landon Nettles went 2-for-3 with a double to lead Brookhaven Academy, which finished with nine hits and took advantage of five Trinity errors – the majority of those in the final two innings.
Even with Ard’s dominance on the mound, the Cougars didn’t give him much run support early on and they were only ahead 2-0 after three innings of play. But timely hitting and miscues by the Saints’ defense helped them score three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and five in the bottom of the fifth to end the game early.
Trinity Episcopal (4-5, 1-1) hosts Adams County Christian School next Monday with the JV game at 5 p.m. and the varsity game at 7 p.m.
LaSalle 13, Block 1
JONESVILLE — LaSalle pitcher Cole Hendrix overcame six walks by allowing just two hits and striking out seven batters in five innings as the Tigers defeated the Block Bears in an LHSAA District 4-1A game Friday afternoon.
Block scored its only run of the game in bottom of the third inning. LaSalle did all of its scoring in the first three innings — two runs in the top of the first inning, six in the top of the second and five in the top of the third.
Dylan Mayo lasted just one and one-third innings and gave up six runs (five earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out just one batter. Drew Sciabarassi hit a three-run home run for LaSalle. Will Hawthorne had both of Block’s hits and finished 2-for-2.
Block (4-12, 0-2) next plays at Montgomery next Monday at 4 p.m.
Buckeye 11, Vidalia 5
BUCKEYE, La. — Vidalia had almost as many hits and as many errors as Buckeye had, but could not come up with enough timely hits as the Vikings fell to the Panthers in LHSAA District 3-3A action Friday afternoon.
A pair of four-run innings by Buckeye also proved to be huge as they helped the Panthers jump out to an 8-3 lead after four innings of play. The Vikings scored two runs in the top of the fifth to make it an 8-5 game, but the Panthers answered with three runs over a two-inning stretch to end the comeback attempt.
Buckeye was led by Mike W., who hit a home run, and Colt H., who was 2-for-3. Devalt got the win on the mound. Josh Foucher went 2-for-3 while both Jamale Davis and Corey Williams were 2-for-4 to lead Vidalia at the plate.
Vidalia (10-8, 0-2) plays host to Avoyelles High School next Monday at 5 p.m.

In the second game, Centreville jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead before Central Private answered with a four-run rally in the bottom of the first inning as the Rebels held on for a 5-4 win. Hunter Devall had a double for the Tigers and Corey Gaulden took the loss.
