|Dragons take Gators, 17-5|
The Delhi Charter Gators (2-1) are off to a hot start to the 2010 high school baseball season. The Gators are averaging 9.66 runs per game this season.
The Gators suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday afternoon when the Mangham Dragons took them down, 17-5.
Previous to that, the Gators had ripped through opposing team pitching with ease last week. The Gators opened up with a 15-8 win over the Franklin Parish Patriots last Monday.
The win was significant for many reasons other than being the first Gator victory of 2010. The biggest boost the win gave Delhi Charter is in power points which will again be used to determine the 32 team playoff bracket for the playoffs in the month of May. By beating a Class 4A school, the Class 1A Delhi Charter team got a power points boost right out of the gate. Delhi Charter was not finished with their offensive onslaught. The Gators took to the field again on Thursday and downed LaSalle High School, 9-8. The back-and-forth action would finally turn in favor of the Gators in the end.
While the offense has been hot, the Gator pitching staff has been a bit shaky during the first week of the regular season. The Gators have started the week with a 12.83 team ERA after allowing 33 runs in the first three games of the season.
Next Tuesday, the Gators will be visiting the Rayville Hornets in another key matchup against talented baseball teams from larger classifications.
Rayville plays in Class 3A. The game will mark the final non-district game of the moth as the Gators will next play a three-game series against the Oak Grove Tigers to begin district 2-1A competition.
