Dyer County Baseball Run Rules Dyersburg 12-2.

Eli Powell

On April 12th, Dyer County played Dyersburg in baseball for the first time in a very long time. One game was originally supposed to be played at Dyersburg but due to Dyersburg not tarping their field before the rain, the teams did not get to play. Many people think Dyersburg did not want to get beat at home by the Choctaws, because many knew what was coming. Who knows why the Trojans did not tarp their field, but the Choctaws run ruled them at home. The Choctaws defeated the Trojans 12-2 in last nights game. The Union commit Lane Evans was on the mound for Dyer County, allowing no earned runs through the 5 half innings he pitched. The sophomore Brady Byars started the game for the Trojans, and got into trouble early, allowing 2 runs in the first inning and 5 in the second. The Trojans went on to use two more pitchers, freshman Grant Dykes and sophomore Cayden Runions. The Choctaws managed to put up five more runs in the fourth and held the Trojans to just one unearned run in the final half inning. A deep line drive double by catcher Parker Patterson sealed the game for the Choctaws, with the timely hit having come with the bases loaded. It was a team win for the Choctaws. Dyer County came out with the win by bunting guys over and by the players doing their jobs. The Choctaws run ruled the Trojans 12-2. The teams did not shake hands after the game, due to how chippy the game was. The game was heated and filled with a lot of chirping in between the two teams. In the end the Choctaws came out with the win.
