[3/7/03]Jeremy Davis pitched six innings of relief to give Natchez Cathedral a 12-11 win over archrival St. Aloysius in Cathedral’s opening game of the season.

Davis got leadoff batter Charlie Amborn to strike out to end the sixth, and he fanned cleanup hitter Walker Hengst to end the game with the tying run stranded at second base.

“I’m definitely tired,” Davis told the Natchez Democrat. “My back has been sore a little bit, and my leg was sore. You can’t really feel your arm. I knew I had to finish it out.”

The Green Wave got rolling early off St. Al starter Jason Brown with three runs in the first and four in the second. Davis had a triple that scored Chris Norris in the first, and Wyler Murray singled home two in the third as the Green Wave led 7-6 heading into the second.

The Flashes, however, put runs on the board early after taking advantage of a rough start by Te Riley. The Flashes scored six runs in the first two innings off one hit and eight walks.

“Te just got off to a bad start and was pressing to throw,” Cathedral coach Craig Beesley said. “He’ll be all right. He’s just got to relax. Throwing strikes is the name of the game at time of the year.”

The Flashes will play at the Capital Classic on Monday.
