Concordia 10s fall to Rayville 10-7

OSTERLAND, La. — Rayville got some solid pitching and took advantage of walks and errors by the Concordia Dixie Youth 10-year-old All-Stars in a 10-7 win Tuesday afternoon at the district tournament.

The game was tied at 5-5 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning. And that’s when Rayville took over in this winners’ bracket game. Two walks, an error and two base hits later Rayville was leading Concordia 10-5.

“That’s when we had a question about the infield fly rule and they scored two runs. But that’s no excuse. We should have made the play,” Concordia coach George Cupit said.

A two-run double by Reid Richard in the top of the sixth inning cut Rayville’s lead to 10-7, but it was too little, too late for Concordia.

“Their pitcher pitched a really good game. He couldn’t throw the ball real hard, but he had a good changeup. That kept us off balanced,” Cupit said. “We didn’t hit the ball real hard. We didn’t hit the ball from top to bottom. We’re disappointed.”

The only other extra-base hit for the Concordia 10s was an RBI triple by Jerrius Scott in the top of the third inning. That gave Concordia a 3-2 lead, but Rayville answered with a run of its own in the bottom of the third.

Coon limited Concordia to just seven hits in the game. Scott went 2-for-4 and Cameron King was 2-for-3. The defense behind Coon did its job as Rayville committed just one error.

Even though Rayville didn’t hit the ball particularly hard either and had just two hits leave the infield, Concordia’s defense committed at least six errors in the game.

The Concordia 10-year-old All-Stars will take on the Monroe Americans in an elimination game today at 6 p.m.
