Bayou leaves Flashes bummed

Published 10:16 pm Friday, March 10, 2023

The end of a tough week for St. Aloysius’ baseball team did not offer much relief.

J.R. Isler and Spencer Hardin drove in two runs apiece, and Bayou Academy beat St. Aloysius 12-6 on Friday.
It was the Flashes’ third loss in two days, after they were swept by Indianola Academy in a doubleheader Thursday. St. Al gave up 30 walks and 36 runs in the three losses.

The Flashes did jump out to an early lead on Friday. Carson Smith hit an RBI single and later scored on a hit batter with the bases loaded to help the Flashes to a 3-0 lead in the first inning.
