POTH -- With just a pair of regular season games remaining, the Poth Pirate baseball team is in position to claim the district championship, and make a solid run into the postseason.

The Pirates picked up two more district wins last week, and remain unbeaten at 12-0 in District 30-2A play. The Pirates held on for a 6-4 win over Jourdanton last Tuesday, and then blew out the Bulldogs of Three Rivers on Friday by the score of 18-1.

Braden Lyssy pitched all seven innings in Jourdanton April 10, earning six strikeouts while allowing just one walk.

Poth started the game well at the plate with a run to open the game in the top of the first, but the Indians came right back in the bottom of the frame to take a 2-1 lead. Poth responded with a run in the top of the second inning to knot it up at 2-2, and the Pirates later closed out the inning with a tie.

After quiet third, fourth, and fifth innings of play, Poth got things going again in the top of the sixth inning. The Pirates scored 3 runs against Jourdanton, and took a 5-2 lead into the bottom half of the inning. After retiring the side in the sixth, Poth came back to the plate in the top of the seventh and added a little insurance with 1 more run.

Trailing 6-2, the Indians had a lot of work to do in a short period of time, and threatened to make a comeback. Jourdanton managed to score 2 runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to narrow the gap, but Poth got out of the inning, and returned home with a 6-4 win.

Blake Lyssy led Poth at the plate, as he went 3 for 3 with a run, a walk, and an RBI. Trey Broyles was 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored, and Braden Lyssy, Tyler Kallies, and Jacob Caloss also had hits in the game.

The Pirates were back at home April 13, and Poth made a statement against the struggling team from Three Rivers.

Broyles was on the mound for Poth, and he pitched a good game against Three Rivers, earning eight strikeouts and giving up just 1 run.

Poth’s offensive efforts began in the bottom of the first inning with a 4-run effort, and were followed up in the bottom of the second inning with 7 more. Poth tacked on 5 runs in the third, and 2 more in the fourth, leading to the 18-1 victory.

Zach Lyssy went 3 for 4 while scoring 3 runs, and Broyles helped himself with a hit and 3 RBIs. Garrett Yanta, Blake Lyssy, and Kyler Felux each had 2 RBIs in the game, and Braden Lyssy and Koby Pruski each added another.

The win kept Poth perfect in district play, with an unblemished record of 12-0. The Pirates were scheduled to host Cotulla April 17, and will close out the regular season this Friday, April 20, in George West.
