EUPORA – The Starkville 10-year-old All-Stars picked up a pair of victories at the Dizzy Dean South State Tournament Saturday afternoon and earned their second bye of the event to move directly to championship round.
Starkville got a 10-3 victory over Greenwood in the first game of the day.
According to Starkville coach Stuart Davis, it took the squad a little bit of time to get adjusted to the off-speed pitching of Greenwood, but was able to get the offense going.
Will Lockhart drove in a pair of runs with a single, while Cole Gonzales added a pair of singles for the biggest hits for Starkville.
Starkville's pitching was split between Brody Bennett for three innings and Chipper Hornburger for three innings.
In the second game, Starkville recorded a 14-2 win in four innings.
"That was the best overall hitting game we've had," Davis said. "We hit rockets in that game and hit up and down the order."
Xavier Sherman was the pitcher for Starkville in the game. Davis said that Sherman did a good job of keeping Winona off balanced and "they never got used to him."
Offensively, Davis said the McReynolds twins, Will and Harris, "did a good job of hitting" during the day, while both batting from the left side.
Starkville doesn't play today and will have to be beaten twice on Monday to be denied the state championship.
"We're really proud of the boys because they have come along and played the best baseball we've played," Davis said. "We have really crushed it. It's been fun to be a part of that."
Starkville doesn't play again until the championship round on Monday. The first pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
