Hahnville’s struggles continue, team drops fourth straight
Hahnville’s Mike Ford is told to hold up at third during the Tigers 5-0 loss to Destrehan. Hahnville has dropped their last four district games.
The Tigers, who are now 3-8 in district play, almost pulled off an upset over the undefeated Wildcats in the first of the two contests, but ultimately fell 2-1. In the second game, Destrehan ace Kurt McCune pitched a complete game, three-hit shutout to lead the Wildcats past the Tigers, 5-0.
But the game was much closer than the score indicates.
Hahnville starter Britten Lanaux kept the Wildcats off the board for five innings, allowing only three hits. Lanaux tired in the sixth though, walking Seth Montz and hitting Sam Carriere with a pitch to start the frame. Matt Smith ripped a run-scoring single to left, scoring Carriere as Hahnville catcher Connor Lorio couldn't handle a strong throw from leftfielder Cody Farrell.
Dylan Lucich, who advanced to third on Smith's single, tallied the second run when Lanaux was charged with a balk, which also advanced Smith to second. McCune followed with a RBI single to left to drive home Smith. One out later, Devin Damare capped off the scoring by slamming a 3-2 pitch for a two-run home run to right-center.
After dropping two games to Destrehan, Hahnville was dealt a similar fate against Dutchtown.
The Griffins beat the Tigers 7-2 in the first game, then 6-4 in the second to sweep the series.
In the first contest, the Tigers were tied with Dutchtown at 2-2 heading into the sixth, but then things fell apart.
Former Hahnville player Brandon Ballard had two hits for the Griffins in contest.
In the second game, the Tigers were tied with Dutchtown 4-4 going into the seventh.
In that frame, Dutchtown’s lead off runner reached on an error, and then a two-run home run put the Tigers away.
The loss was a "carbon copy" of almost every defeat the Tigers have had this season, head coach Kade Rogers said.
"We are in these games heading into the late innings, and then when we need a timely hit to break them open, it doesn't happen," Rogers said. "Then we have errors and miscommunication that puts us behind.
"It's extremely frustrating. We keep on telling the guys to believe in themselves and hopefully they will be able to flip the script on some other teams."
