It was a must-win situation for the Starkville Yellowjackets on Wednesday afternoon.
After what can only be described as a pitching duel, the Yellowjackets found themselves victim to an extra inning 2-0 loss to Columbus.
â€śWe competed our tails off,â€ť Starkville coach Travis Garner said. â€ś(Colbey) Rivers was dynamite. That is a great club. We threw zero for zero. One of those things where it is disappointing, but hopefully they will learn from it and get better.
â€śComing in here, we returned four starters. There are games where we start seven sophomores. This year was a struggle. We kept our heads above water in one of the toughest divisions and we will be stronger for it.â€ť
