The Mohawks picked up their first win of the baseball season, notching a 4-2 victory over Blytheville Thursday in Piggott.

Senior Zach Redmon had a solid performance on the mound for the Tribe. Redmon worked all seven innings for the Mohawks, allowing two runs on just three hits and four walks while fanning 12 batters.

"Zach Redmon did a good job throwing for us," PHS head coach Shawn Hearn said. "I thought he did an outstanding job of staying in control. That was our best pitching outing of the year."

Piggott Catcher Brody Williams scored in the second inning, stretching out a double before taking third. A sacrifice fly by Jim Copelin brought in Williams, giving the Tribe a 1-0 lead.

Piggott struck again in the third. Enoch Richardson reached on a walk and was driven in by Austin Murray. Spencer Coomer doubled, bringing in Austin Murray. Coomer would cross the plate later, making it 4-0.

Coomer finished the day 2-3 with two RBIs. Williams went 2-3 with a run scored. Austin Murray was 2-4 with a run. Redmon and Garrett Cook added a hit each for the Tribe.

Piggott improved to 1-3 with the victory.

The Mohawks are set to visit Rivercrest at Wilson beginning at 4 p.m. Monday. The Tribe will host Harrisburg at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in Piggott.
