Prep baseball roundups: Bogue Chitto tops CathedralPublished 12:04am Tuesday, March 26, 2013
BOGUE CHITTO — Cathedral had four extra-base hits, three of them home runs, and it still wasn’t enough as the Green Wave lost to the Bogue Chitto Bobcats 9-6 Monday night in an MHSAA Region 7-1A game.
The difference in the ball game was an eight-run rally by Bogue Chitto in the bottom of the second inning that erased a 1-0 deficit. After pitching a scoreless first inning, Austin Chauvin was chased from the mound after allowing six runs, three of them earned, while getting just one batter out in the bottom of the second. He gave up five hits, struck out one and walked one.
Kyle Bradley belted two home runs and went 2-for-4, Ty Brown hit a home run, and Thomas Garrity was 2-for-4 with a double for the Green Wave. However, those were the only three batters for Cathedral that got a hit off winning pitcher Brock Roberts.
Roberts also helped his own cause by going 3-for-4 with a double, Brice Roberts went 2-for-4 with a double, and Nick Parker was 2-for-3 with a double as the Bobcats pounded out 11 hits.
Cathedral (8-4, 2-1) plays at 7 p.m. today at home against Bogue Chitto.
