Mohawks Win Three in a Row
The Piggott Mohawk baseball squad has won three games in a row in the past week, including a dominate conference win over Hoxie and a pair of come-from-behind victories.
The Mohawks visited the Hoxie Mustangs on Wednesday, March 29, and shut-out their hosts 10-0. Junior Josh Lyman had a big game on the mound, and at the plate, as the Tribe prevailed.
Lyman pitched the complete game shut-out, striking out eight Mustangs, walking three and hitting three more. He also had a 2 for 3 day at the plate, driving in two runs and scoring two more in the win. Freshman Michael Palmer also had a strong performance, as he was 2 for 4 with a double and a pair of RBI for the Mohawks.
The following day the Cave City Cavemen made the trip to Piggott for a non-conference game with the Tribe coming-from-behind to win 9-6. Hayden Lemmons got the start, and the win, for the Mohawks.
Riding the two game winning streak, the Mohawks made the short trip to Rector Friday afternoon for a non-conference game with the Cougars with Palmer on the mound. And, despite allowing the home team to jump out to an early lead, and trailing 5-2 going into the seventh inning, the Tribe made a late rally and came from behind to notch the win by a final of 11-6.
With the wins the Mohawks pull to 5-6 overall, as they were scheduled to take on Pocahontas Tuesday afternoon at Independence Park. Thursday they're slated to host the Melbourne Bearkatz and next Tuesday, April 11, the Walnut Ridge Bobcats are scheduled to visit for a conference game.
