|Vidalia baseball falls to Ouachita|
Hitting is always ahead of pitching early in the season and that was certainly the case for Vidalia High's season-opener Tuesday at Vidalia as the Vikings fell to Ouachita Parish High School, 14-10.
"We tried an onsides kick at the end of the game but it didn't work," said Vidalia High head coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir. "Right now we're swinging the bat well, but we have got to have people step up on defense. When you don't make routine plays and give a team extra outs it adds to your pitching count and that's killing us because we don't have a lot of depth with our pitching. But the kids did play hard."
Vidalia scored three runs in its first at-bat as Mason Ozburn delivered a one-out single, Seth Thompson doubled to right field and Trey Barnes singled. Trey Brasher walked and Jake DeWeese doubled.
The Vikings added another run in the second as Seth Barlow walked Cameron Boyette hit into a fielder's choice and Ozburn singled.
Ouachita scored seven runs in the third inning, but Vidalia added three in the bottom of the inning on hits by Brasher, Hunter Martin and Barlow.
"Another problem we have is that we are not in shape," Hoffpauir said. "The kids did nothing on their own to get in shape. This is not summer baseball, you don't just step out there, play the game and go home."
Vidalia competed against West Feliciana and Franklin Parish in a varsity jamboree Friday.
Seth Thompson hit a grand slam for Vidalia, while Trey Brasher had a home run.
"We made too many mental mistakes," Hoffpauir said. "We did not play smart baseball. I liked our approaches at the plate. One thing about, these kids are going to play hard each time out."
Vidalia faces Monterey in the Cathedral Tournament on Thursday.
