|Huntington finishes second in district|
The Jeckyl and Hyde Huntington baseball team found the right time to put it together, defeating Tensas Academy 11-6 Tuesday in St. Joseph to clinch second place in MPSA 6A East.
"I never know who is going to show up," said Huntington coach Leo Eliser. "If you look at our record and how we played during the year you would wonder how we made it. But we happened to play well in key district games, and that's what you shoot for."
Huntington will be the second seed from the East in the MPSA 6A Tournament to be held at Franklin Academy Monday and Tuesday.
Franklin finished unbeaten in district, while Huntington is 4-3 in district.
Huntington will play the No. 1 team from 6A West Monday at 5 p.m.
Tensas defeated the Hounds in Ferriday. Both teams were tied for second going into the contest.
Josh Lee allowed two hits over five innings in relief Huntington scored five runs in the third innings as Jordan Jones started off the rally with a single.
Lee struck out seven batters and walked just two to pick up the win. Huntington (4-11, 4-3) scored one run each in the top of the fifth and sixth innings and capped off the win with two runs in the top of the seventh. Jones went 3-for-3 at the plate, while Phillip Washington went 2-for-5 with a double.
Huntington fell to River Oaks 16-9 Friday.
The Mustangs scored six runs in the first inning before the Hounds tallied five in their first at-bat.
"Josh Lee had a tough first inning, but he shut them down the rest of the time," Eliser said. "We made six errors in the seventh inning and we left the bases loaded three times. Jess Dossett came in and pitched and did a good job. We hit the baseball. Overall we played better than we have been playing."
