Destrehan season comes to end with extra-innings loss to Lafayette
The two teams were tied at 2-2 in the eighth inning on Wednesday when stormy conditions forced the game to be called for the day. Destrehan (17-17) had to drive back to Lafayette on Thursday to resume the contest, but a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the eighth inning gave the victory to Lafayette.
Destrehan actually took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning. Jesse Bryant drew a walk to lead off the frame and moved to third on a double to left by Jace Weber. Bryant stole home on a wild pitch a batter later to give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead.
Lafayette answered in the bottom of the inning by scoring two runs to take the lead and neither team managed to get on the scoreboard again until Destrehan brought home it’s final run of the game in the sixth.
Ryan Burks and Blake Hymel both drew two-out walks to keep the Wildcats alive with Burks scoring the tying run on a hard hit to third by Brennan Quigley.
Weber led Destrehan from the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double. Quigley was the only other Wildcat to record a hit in the game.
Ryan Brewer got the loss for Destrehan, giving up one hit and walking one in the bottom of the eighth. Hymel pitched the first 7.1 innings for Destrehan, giving up three runs on four hits. He struck out five in the game.
