NHS defeats Wingfield

NATCHEZ — Despite a late start, the Natchez High Bulldogs took care of the Wingfield Falcons 12-2 in five innings Friday afternoon in a Division 6-6A game at Chester Willis Field.

Even though Natchez High 10-run ruled Wingfield to end the game early, head coach Charlie Williams was not at all happy with the energy level his team displayed during the game.

“I wasn’t pleased with the way we played. We played with no enthusiasm at all. We made base running errors and base running mistakes, and we just didn’t hit the ball. I didn’t like the way we played at all,” Williams said.

Even though the Bulldogs had a 7-2 lead over the Falcons after four innings of play, they had just two hits to that point. Finally, Natchez High’s bats woke up in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Bulldogs put together four hits and scored five runs in the home half of the inning and just like that the game was over.

Yet Williams would much better have liked to see his players do that earlier in the game.

But there were a couple of things he was pleased to see. One was that the defense behind starting and winning pitcher Quinton Logan did not commit a single error. The other was the outstanding performance Logan had on the mound — five innings, 12 strikeouts, no walks.

But as Williams put it, “That was the only thing I was satisfied with.”

Natchez High (9-5, 4-1) will host a doubleheader today at Chester Willis Field. First the Bulldogs take on Forest Hill at 11 a.m. Then at 2 p.m. they go up against the Cathedral Green Wave.
