Kirk Savoy, an irregular (but effective) starter during the season, was on his game Thursday afternoon, shutting out Madison in an abbreviated game.

Another run rule win:  9-0 against a quality opponent.

Great pitching.  Clutch hitting.  Solid defense.  Against quality opposition.

Yes, these guys are good.  When deciding what performances to write about, I’m lost, because so many are so deserving of mention and praise.

Suffice it that the pitching, again, was stellar.  Kirk Savoy was not even a regular in the rotation all season, but he showed the quality depth of this pitching staff.  Undoubtedly, if LSU Eunice goes on to win the whole thing, pitching depth will be cited among the Bengals’ edges.

But the bats are hardly slouching.  I’m excited that sophomores like Dalton Herrington and Zack Hawkins have come through with big hits the last couple of games.  The whole team is hitting well, though.  This gang knows its pedigree!

For the second game in a row, sophomore first bagger Hawkins got a clutch first inning hit to put the Bengals out front early.
