|Patriots win big district game over Neville|
The Franklin Parish Patriots finished a district series this past weekend by splitting a double-header with the Neville Tigers Saturday in Monroe.
Franklin Parish (10-11, 3-3) lost the first game of the series 9-1 Thursday evening in front of the home crowd in Winnsboro.
Neville (11-9-1, 4-1) lit up the Franklin Parish pitching staff in the first two games of the series before the Patriots found their groove on Saturday.
Neville took the second game of the series, which was the first half of a Saturday double-header, by a score of 10-0 in five innings.
Franklin Parish would not be denied in the final game as they found ways to get base runners early and often and made some outstanding defensive stops to stiff the Tigers and avoid the dreaded three-game sweep in a 5-2 victory.
Jonathan Eaton continues to lead the team at the plate with a .492 batting average including 12 RBI so far this season.
Ethan Bass is not far behind Eaton in the stats. Bass is hitting .412 and has recorded five doubles in 2009.
Jordan Temple has been nothing short of perfect this season on the mound as he is the top pitcher for the Patriots.
Temple is currently 4-0 with a solid 2.51 ERA. Ethan Bass has also pitched well in relief and has a team-best 0.52 ERA for the Patriots so far this year.
The Patriots will be hosting the Carroll Bulldogs in a set of three-games to all be played in Winnsboro beginning Thursday.
The first game will begin at 3 p.m. and will be a vital part of the Patriots attempting to keep pace with Neville and West Ouachita in the district standings with three weeks remaining in the regular season.
West Ouachita and Neville are in a virtual tie for first because Neville has played two more games so far than the Chiefs but has lost one district game and the Chiefs are a perfect 3-0.
