Tribe Sweeps Osceola in Twin Bill
The Piggott Mohawks notched their first wins of the season Monday afternoon, as they traveled to Osceola and swept the Seminole in 3A-3 conference action. The victories were the first under new head coach David Reynolds, as the squad had battled wet weather in the early days of the campaign.
Mohawk hurler Bret Fuller dominated Osceola in game one of the twin-bill, working five innings and striking out 10 Seminole as the Tribe posted a 6-3 decision. Spencer Hardin then came on in relief, pitching the last two innings while striking out one to record the save.
John Jones had a good day at the plate, getting three hits on the game, while Chad Reaves, Nicholas Harris and Jordan Blascoe all had two hits each in the win.
The Tribe was hot in game two, as they beat the Seminole 12-2 in the nightcap. Hayden Lemmons got the nod from Reynolds, working three and two-thirds innings as he struck out six Osceola batters and surrendered the only two runs. Quentin Reaves then came on to pitch the final one and one-third inning, as the contest was called after five due to the run rule.
The scoring was spread evenly up and down the scorecard for the Tribe, with Chad Reaves, Jones and Elijah Bellers all getting two hits each.
The Mohawks hosted the Corning Bobcats Tuesday afternoon at Independence Park, with the contest interrupted by a thundershower with the Tribe trailing midway through the second inning. The Mohawks are scheduled to take part in the Duel on the Diamond at Paragould in the coming week, weather permitting, and are slated for a re-match with the Bobcats next Tuesday, April 7, at Corning. On Thursday, April 9, they're slated to visit Manila and on Monday, April 13, are scheduled to host Hoxie in 3A-3 conference play at Independence Park.
