COACH’S QUOTE: “I thought we played really well. We still aren’t swinging the bats as well as I’d like, but our defense and pitching have been doing a great job for us the past few weeks. Hopefully, that trend will continue as we try to develop a better awareness at the plate,” — Vanoss head coach Jacob Grace.

COACH’S QUOTE: “We gave up seven unearned runs on our four errors. Daffern came in and threw the ball extremely well in relief. When we quit giving our opponents five and six-out innings, we’ll have a chance to win some ball games,” ­— Tupelo head coach Clay Weller.

Record: Tupelo is 5-8; Colbert 11-1.
