Prep baseball: Cathedral beats McComb 13-3

BROOKHAVEN — Austin Chauvin allowed just one hit and struck out five batters in four innings as Cathedral defeated the McComb Tigers 13-3 in six innings Saturday afternoon in the Green Wave’s first game at the Loyd Star Tournament.

Cathedral jumped on McComb early with two runs in the bottom of the first inning and another run in the bottom of the second. But McComb’s Anthony Brown held the Green Wave scoreless over the next two innings.

The Green Wave struck again with four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 7-0 lead. The Tigers finally got on the board with three runs in the top of the sixth to make it a 7-3 game. However, McComb’s rally was short-lived as Cathedral plated six runs in the bottom of the sixth to 10-run rule the Tigers.

Thomas Garrity went 2-for-2 with a double, while Chauvin and Christopher White each had a double for Cathedral.

The second game didn’t go quite as well as the first game for Cathedral as host Loyd Star rallied from a 4-3 deficit to take a 7-5 win.

After committing just one error against McComb, Cathedral’s defense was shaky throughout its game against the Hornets and ended up with six errors.

After Loyd Star scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning, Cathedral took the lead with a four-run rally in the top of the third inning. However, the Hornets answered with a three-run rally in the bottom of the fifth to take a 6-4 lead. They would score their final run in the bottom of the sixth.

Cathedral scored one run in the top of the seventh, but its rally fell a little bit short.

Ty Brown accounted for two of the Green Wave’s three hits with one of those hits being a double. Loyd Star was led by Josh Hodges, who was 2-for-3 with a double, and Brett Caltote, who was 2-for-4 with a triple.

Cathedral (1-1) plays at Porter’s Chapel at 6 p.m. Monday.
