NATCHEZ — The Natchez High Bulldogs lost to the Brookhaven Panthers 8-3 Tuesday night at Chester Willis field here in Natchez.

Starting the game for the Bulldogs was Paul Hargrave who threw five innings before giving way to Jakel Barnes.

Taking the mound for Brookhaven was Sevante Quinn who got in six and two-thirds innings before being relieved by Maney Miller. Quinn’s pitching started strong and got even stronger as the night went on. The only reason Quinn did not finish with the last batter is because he was at his maximum allowable pitch total, at 120 pitches in the game.

The Bulldogs managed five hits and three walks on the night but could only get three runs across the plate. The Panthers had eight hits, four walks and took advantage of four passed balls in the late innings to put up eight runs on the scoreboard.

In the Panthers second inning a Gatson Walker single drove in two runs. In the Bulldog bottom of the second Trey Minor drove in two runs with a single to the outfield, which tied the game at two runs apiece.

In the bottom of the third Barnes kept the Bulldogs close with an RBI double that made the score 4-3.

Walker with a triple, Miller with a double and Jacob Porter with two doubles for the Panthers put the game out of reach when the Bulldogs came up for their last at bat down 8-3.

“We’re a young team, so I’m proud of the way we played,” said Coach Dan Smith of Natchez High. “We get a chance to play them again Thursday and hopefully get a win.”

Brookhaven had to relieve its pitcher.

“Sevante threw 120 pitches, which is the maximum number of pitches allowed so we had to take him out,” said Coach Matt White of Brookhaven. “He couldn’t finish the last batter. We lift weights twice a week so I know he’s in shape.”
