The Bayou Academy Colts suffered a tough loss to the Glenbrook School Apaches in the first game of a best-of-three series in the second round of the State AA Baseball Playoffs Tuesday in Minden, La.
The Colts fell to 20-8.
“They made defensive plays that saved some runs, and we had a couple of plays we could have made but didn’t,” Bayou head coach Will Reed said.
Bayou's Trevor Runnels went the distance as he gave up four runs, two earned, in a seven-inning complete game.
“He threw a gem,” Reed said. “We just didn’t get him any runs.”
Chantz Arbuckle led the Colts at the plate with two hits.
The Colts and Apaches will go to Cleveland on Friday for game two and game three, if necessary. Friday’s action is set to start at 4 p.m.
“We’re back at the house now,” Reed said. “We’ve got to prepare to play two games.”
