Published 12:00 am Tuesday, March 20, 2001

The 2001 Ferriday Trojans baseball season got off to a good start as they soundly defeated Davidson 13-2 Monday afternoon at Ferriday despite having no extra-base hits.

Robert Taylor had a solid performance on the mound to pick up the win for Ferriday, giving up only three hits in seven innings.

&uot;He had pretty good control,&uot; said Ferriday head coach Carl Dangerfiled. &uot;He didn’t walk anybody. He had 12 or 13 strikeouts.&uot;

&uot;And he was solid at the plate. He was the man today,&uot; he said.

Taylor also had a good day at the plate for the Trojans, going 2-for-3, as did teammate Maurice Gibson.

Harrison was the losing pitcher for Davidson as Ferriday pounded out nine hits – all singles.

&uot;I was just glad we were able to hang in there,&uot; Dangerfield said. &uot;We played a good first three innings, but we’ve still gotta lot of work to do.&uot;

Ferriday, 1-0, plays at Davidson at 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
