The Lakeside Warriors cruised to a convincing 12-1 victory in a road matchup with Choudrant Tuesday, as the Warriors continue to swing hot bats following their 8-0 victory over Minden on Sunday in the Lakeside Tournament.
The Warriors collected 10 hits in the game, and senior right-hander Luke Griffith was too much for the Aggies on the mound.
“The bats are finally beginning to wake up,” Lakeside head coach Bob Gray said. “Several guys are perking up at the plate. Josh Prince got into the middle of one and hit it a long way. I don’t know if it’s come down yet.
Luke had a good game on the mound. We’ve been waiting on that type of performance. It was a big game if for no other reason, because it wasn’t raining.”
Josh Prince had the big hit for Lakeside, a homerun in the fourth inning to blow the game wide open. Prince finished 2-3 with a homerun, single and 4 RBI.
Coulson White had a 2 RBI single, Frankie Chanler drove in two runs on a Choudrant error, as did Brayden Jones. Logan Clark had a pair of singles, as did Luke Griffith, who also struck out five batters on his way to earning the win on the mound.
Thomas Lambert rounded out the Lakeside attack with a base hit and a pair of stolen bases.
Lakeside will be back in action in the Sterlington Tournament beginning Thursday, March 19.
