The Festus Tigers traveled to Ste. Genevieve on Monday night to play the final game of the evening in Class 4 District 2 Play. Festus would meet the Potosi Trojans.
On the mound for Festus, the Senior Charlie Pratt. Pratt would take the loss in the epic battle going the distance. Pratt would strike out 12 and walk two and allow 7 hits. Potosi would plate runs in the 3rd with runs and slightly after 10 pm the winning run would score for Potosi on an rbi hit from Ryker Walkton in the bottom of the 8th.
The Tigers certainly had their chances and compounded things with key mistakes. Stranding the bases loaded twice and hitting into three double plays to kill rallies early in the game proved disastrous. The game had a fierce energy all night. Anyone in attendance on Monday night saw a Tiger team that came to fight.
Offensively, Festus had 7 hits. Cole Wagner, Caleb Hyde, Zach Baisch, Collin Reando, Charlie Pratt all had one hit. Senior Zach Liles, the designated hitter, had two hits. Rbis went to Eddie Martin and Zach Baisch. Festus would strand 8 runners in the game. Steal two bases: Collin Reando and Ryan Reando each would pick up a steal.
Thanks for everyone that supported this team this season! It is appreciated by all.
