First there were 4-3 and 1-0 wins against Hernando in the first round of the Class 6A baseball playoffs and now the Lewisburg Patriots have felt the sting of the Starkville Yellow Jackets in the second round.

After Banks Perry went the distance to lead the Jackets to a 2-1 victory on Thursday night, Ethan Pulliam goes 6.1 strong innings and Jackson Owen closed out Friday’s 3-2 series clincher over the Patriots at Carlisle Stadium.
