No. 4 Byng jumps on Ada early


Ada —

Byng would break the game open in the third with a seven-run explosion and got plenty of help from Ada in the form of four hit batters, a walk and an untimely error. All seven Byng runs came with two outs. Along with Wescott’s big blow, Reid Wall also had an RBI single in the Byng uprising.

Wescott scored the final Byng run of the game in the top of the fifth when he led off with a walk, stole second and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Bohan.

Tyler Pierce scattered just three Ada hits — two by Girdley — and struck out three in five solid innings on the mound for Byng.

“They’re No. 4 for a reason. I thought Pierce threw the ball pretty well, and they really swung the sticks early,” Alberson said. “We didn’t help ourselves out. You can’t make bad plays and walk people. Good teams will really get you if you do.”

Byng managed just five hits off Simmer and Ada reliever Dalton Wolf.

“We got lucky in some spots,” Streater said. “By the end of it, (Ada’s) going to be a club that nobody wants to play. They have athletes all over the field. The ball bounced our way today. You have two good 4A teams sitting right here beside each other, and hopefully by the end of the season, we’ll both be playing well.”

Ada was scheduled to travel to Sulphur today, but the Bulldogs canceled that contest. Now, Vanoss will visit Cougar Field this afternoon for a 4 p.m. varsity contest.

Meanwhile, Byng is preparing for its spring break road trip to Florida. The Pirates will play the Pine Forest Eagles Tuesday (March 19) at 5:30 p.m.; the Choctawhatchee Indians Wednesday (March 20) at 5 p.m and the Niceville Eagles Thursday (March 21) at 3 p.m.
