Byng roars to state tournament


Poteau —

“We got a great pitching performance from Reid,” Streeter said. “He stepped up, and he did great on the mound for us.”

Then, Byng's offense went to work in the bottom of the third. Byng (26-7) sent 10 batters to the plate, scoring half of them. Andre Davis hit a two-run single to break the scoreless deadlock to give the visiting Pirates a 2-0 lead.

That was followed by an RBI triple by Kiyaanii Bohan, an RBI single by Tyler Pierce and a wild pitch to give Byng a 5-0 lead after three innings. Byng had five of its 10 hits in that inning.

After Reid Wall retired Poteau in order in the fourth inning, the Byng bats came alive once more.

Byng sent nine batters to the plate in another five-run outburst. Reid Wall aided his own cause with an RBI double to make it 6-0. With one out, Bohan's two-run single made it 8-0.

Gage Wall's RBI single made it 9-0 and he later scored on a Poteau error to up Byng's lead to 10-0 after four innings.

“All my batters stepped up,” Streeter said. “We hit the ball (Monday) the best that we did the whole regional. Everybody got up there and did their jobs. We got some run support (for Reid Wall), and that's what it takes. Hopefully, we can do it in a few days.”

Poteau (29-9) tried to rally to at least keep the game going past the top of the fifth inning. Kade McMillin led off with a single into left field, and went to second on a misplayed ball off the bat of Tristan Myers. However, in trying to get to third base, McMillin was thrown out for the first out of the inning. Myers reached second base on the play.

Roger Barcheers then hit a ground ball which was booted by Pierce at shortstop to put runners at first and second with one out.
