Gabe Board was an RBI machine on Saturday, driving in four on two hits to the Varsity Lyons past Hopkins County Central 6-2 on Saturday. Board drove in runs on a single in the first and a home run in the second.
Lyon County got things moving in the first inning when Travis Yancy drove in one on a triple. Board followed on a single to drive in Yancy. Board crossed the plate just 3 pitches later on triple from third baseman, Keaton Bridges. Unfortunately, Bridges would be left sitting on third as Hopkins Central pitcher Logan Scarbrough managed to shut down the offense abruptly.
The second inning would be another big inning for the Lyons as Rush was sent to first after he was hit by a pitch and Gunnar Bingham's single would give the Lyons two on the bag just in time for Gabe Board's homerun. It would be Board's fourth of the season. The Lyons now led 6-0.
Bridges, on the mound for the Lyons, shut out Hopkins Central for much of the game. The Storm would finally see an opening in the Lyon defense in the fifth inning on a two out rally started on a single by Brasher. The Storm would manage two runs, both on errors, before Bridges would strike out Austin Scarbrough for the 3rd out of the inning.
It was 3 up and 3 down for both teams for both halves of the final two innings. The Lyons would hold off the Storm 6-2 to pick up their 10th win of the season.
