Trinity baseball falls as pitching struggles

FERRIDAY — Jesse Cable went 2-for-2 with a double, but Riverfield Academy countered with four players having two hits apiece as the Raiders defeated the Trinity Episcopal Saints 14-2 in five innings Thursday afternoon at the Huntington Baseball Field.

Winning pitcher Will Stansbury, who held Trinity to just four hits in a complete-game decision, went 2-for-4 at the plate. Connor Copeland, Ben Sylvestri and Marc Morris each went 2-for-2 and Chase Eppinette had a double for Riverfield, which scored four runs in each of the first two innings to grab an 8-1 lead.

Garrett Vinson lasted just one inning and allowed four runs. Jared Hedrick came on in relief and gave up 10 runs in the final four innings, including four in the top of the fifth that eventually led to the Raiders ending the game on the 10-run-after-five mercy rule.

Trinity Episcopal (1-11) plays at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in a home game against Adams County Christian School.

Buckeye 12, Vidalia 11

VIDALIA — The Buckeye Panthers scored four runs in the top of the seventh inning to rally from a 9-8 deficit and held on to defeat the Vidalia Vikings 12-11 Thursday afternoon in an LHSAA District 3-3A game.

Buckeye had already rallied from an 8-5 deficit with three runs in top of the fifth inning to tie the game at 8-all before Vidalia scored one run in the bottom of the fifth for a one-run lead. After the Panthers rallied to take the lead in the top of the seventh, the Vikings scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but a strikeout ended the rally and the game.

Cole Cangemi was charged with the loss after giving up 12 runs, all of them earned despite six Vidalia errors, on 17 hits and four walks with eight strikeouts. Kyle Coley went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple and three runs batted in while William Handjis was 3-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.

Vidalia (9-6, 2-2) has a 5 p.m. game Monday at Avoyelles.
