Skipper's wins 2nd straight
MORGAN CITY — Skipper’s Sporting Goods (Morgan City) won its second straight contest this week with a 7-5 win against Jester’s Court (Central Lafourche) Tuesday.
Ethan Scioneaux, an incoming freshman, earned the win for the locals, while Matt Lorenzo picked up the save.
At the plate, Lorenzo finished 1-for-2 with two RBIs, while Nick Spinella was 1-for-3 with an RBI and Rhett Fryou added an RBI.
Skipper’s will return to action Thursday when it makes the short trip to face Patterson. Junior varsity action is scheduled for 5 p.m. with varsity to follow at 7 p.m.
Also, Skipper’s home game against H.L. Bourgeois Monday has been moved to next Wednesday. Junior varsity and varsity play are set for 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively.
Reeco Rental 9,
Halimar Shipyard 8
Reeco Rental (Thibodaux) edged Halimar Shipyard (Central Catholic) in Swampland League baseball action Tuesday in Thibodaux.
Matthew Barbier and Barron Courtney each finished 2-for-5 with a double in the win, while Patrick Barron was 1-for-2 with a double.
“It was good to see some young faces on the field,” Halimar coach Tyler Jensen said. “They battled and played hard. Samuel Guarisco did a great job coming in relief and keeping us in the game.”
Guarisco suffered the loss for Halimar Shipyard.
Jensen did say his defense’s performance was “disappointing.”
“We kicked it around way too much,” he said. “I was pleased with the way we swung the bat and have been for the past few games. We have to be better, but I look forward to Thursday.”
While earlier this season it was unlikely Halimar would play any home games at its field at the Amelia Recreation Department, the squad will play its first home game of the summer there Thursday against South Louisiana Bank. Junior varsity will play at 3 p.m., and varsity will take the field at 5 p.m.
Jensen said that the team will be able to play the remainder of their home schedule in Amelia, something earlier this season officials said was doubtful because of heavy damage the facility received following heavy winds and rain in late May.
The change of time to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. starts for the remainder of the squad’s home games because of inoperable lights is the only change Halimar will face this summer, Amelia Recreation Manager Mike Beadle said this morning.
