Top-ranked Byng rolls to Class A District title

Byng —      The top-ranked Byng Pirates neatly wrapped up a district championship with a 10-0 win over Stonewall Friday afternoon at Stokes Field.

     Byng didn’t allow a single run during its three-game romp to the title, outscoring its foes by a combined 34-0 in 15 innings.

     Senior catcher Joe Nemecek continued to swing a big bat for the Pirates, finishing 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs in the title game. He finished the district 6-for-9 with two home runs, a triple, a double and 10 RBIs. His courtesy runners scored seven times.

     "He hit a couple of long balls into the wind, but we had others hit the ball well too," said Byng head coach Shawn Streater. "We had a few games before districts where we didn’t hit the ball as well as we’d have liked, but that had something to do with who we played too."

     Friday, it was the pitching combination of starter Shawn Treat and reliever Reid Wall that combined for a five-inning shutout. Treat struck out five in three innings, and Wall whiffed the final five batters he faced.

     "Our pitchers pitched it well, like we have all year long, and we played good defense. Now we’re looking forward to regionals," Streater said.

     Byng scored two runs in the first inning without the aid of a hit or a Stonewall error. The Pirates took advantage of five first-inning walks and a number of wild pitches and passed balls to get around the base paths.

     Nemecek and Gage Wall both had singles in Byng's three-run second inning that included three more walks and a hit batter as the hosts pushed their lead to 5-0.

     Nemecek hit a three-run bomb that landed on the roof of the Byng elementary building, well beyond the left field fence, to give the Pirates an 8-0 advantage.

     Andrew Daniel singled to start the Byng fourth, and Darian Luper followed with a one-out double. Both runners scored on a Stonewall error to account for the final runs of the contest.

     Treat doubled, was hit by a pitch and scored two runs for the Pirates, while BHS leadoff hitter Hunter Capps finished 0-for-1 but walked three times and scored three runs. Gage Wall finished 1-for-2 with two RBIs.

     Dustin Hayes had the only Stonewall hit. He led off the second inning with a line drive to the gap in right-center field and tried to stretch the single into a double.   But Byng right fielder Andre Davis hustled to the ball and fired a strike to Reid Wall at shortstop to record the out at second base.
