The Hahnville Tigers were eliminated from the Class 5A state baseball playoffs after falling 8-0 to John Ehret on Wednesday.
Ehret took a 2-0 lead in the first inning, getting one run on a Tiger throwing error and another on an RBI single by Tre Edwards. Hahnville pulled starter Adam Dufrene after he walked the first batter to start off the second, but that did little to stop the Ehret onslaught.
Hahnville’s Jake Cologne was able to get Tylor Williams to ground out on a bunt, but a lined single by Devin Steib, followed by a walk issued to Ron Doiron, loaded the bases. Thomas Ribando then blasted a high fly ball to right field to bring in one run, and Torin Burns grounded out to first to plate another run and make the score 4-0.
Cologne then walked Dylan Blanda to reload the bases, and a double up the middle by Tre Edwards brought three more runners across the plate to give Ehret a 7-0 lead.
Cologne settled down after that, and kept Ehret off the board until the fifth inning, but after walking Williams to load the bases, he was pulled in favor of Daniel Arnold.
Arnold’s first pitch went wild, bringing the final Ehret runner across the plate for an 8-0 advantage.
The Tigers were unable to recover.
Ehret finished with 10 hits, while Hahnville managed only four.
