Byng's Capps has strong showing in first-round shutout

Latta —      Byng got a strong pitching performance from Hunter Capps in a 5-0 win over Tupelo in a late first-round game at the 2013 Latta Invitational Thursday night.

     In other first-round action on Thursday, Dale dropped Rock Creek 10-0 and Silo socked Stonewall 7-4.

     Byng 5, Tupelo 0

     It took Byng a couple of innings to get going, as Tupelo hurler Luke Leland kept them off balance during the first two innings.

     In the bottom of the third, Joe Nemecek received a base on balls, and Andre Davis hit an RBI double to put Byng up 1-0. An error allowed Gage Wall to reach base. Two more consecutive Tupelo errors scored allowed Byng to push its lead to 3-0.

     Byng added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth. Capps reached on an error, and Nemecek hit a two-run home run over the right field wall to put Byng up 5-0.

     That is all the runs Byng would need, as winning pitcher Hunter Capps threw a one-hit shutout that included 10 strikeouts.

     “This was Hunter’s best outing of the year," said Byng head coach Shawn Streater. “We didn’t hit as well as we could have, but Hunter kept their bats stifled. Coach (Clay) Weller does a good job (at Tupelo), and the freshman they had on the mound kept us off balance.”

     For Tupelo, Chisum Henry had the lone hit of the game as he went 1-3 at the plate.

     Nemecek was 1-for-2 with two RBIs, and Davis went 1-3 with an RBI. Gage Wall also was 1-3.

     The Rebels scored a run in the bottom of the first inning when Andrew Bolin was walked, stole second and third and raced home on a Lance House sacrifice fly.

     Stonewall answered in the top of the second when Chase Findley singled to left to start the inning. Gage Burns received a free pass, and Dustin Hayes singled to load the bases. Dakota Teel was also walked to force in the first Stonewall run and knot the score at 1-1. Back-to-back walks by Ryan York and Tyler Campise gave Stonewall a 3-1 lead. A wild pitch scored Teel, and Silo pitcher Jaris Hamilton walked another hitter before Silo was able to get out of the inning trailing 4-1.

     Hamilton was much sharper throughout the remainder of the game, as he only allowed one more hit over the next five innings.

     Silo regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth. Lucas Long was hit by a pitch, and Bolin singled. Stonewall then committed a costly error that allowed two runs to score and put House on third with no outs. Leonard Sandler then ripped an RBI double  and put Silo back on top 5-4. Sandler later scored off an RBI single by Kendall Shives for a 6-4 Silo lead.

     The Rebels tacked on the final run of the game in the sixth after a triple by Sandler and a grounder to the right side by Hamilton.

     For the game, Silo outhit Stonewall 7-3.  Bolin finished 3-for-3 with three runs scored and two stolen bases. House was 1-3 with a run scored and two RBIs.    Sandler went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI.

     For Stonewall, Findley was 1-4 with a run scored. Gage Burns went 1-for-2 with a run scored, and Hayes was 1-for-3 with a run scored.
