Paul's Photo The Centerville Tigers are on a roll as they drubbed Onalaska 11-1 and Hempstead 10-0 behind good pitching, timely hitting and a strong defense. The contest against the Onalaska Wildcats on March 18th was halted after 5 innings because of the 10 run rule. Ryan Payne knocked in 2 runs in the 1st inning on a double. The Tigers scored 3 more runs on a passed ball, a sacrifice fly by Caleb Parker and a walk to Chance Carrigan with the bases full. The Tigers piled on 4 more runs in the 4th on a bases loaded walk and a bases loaded single by Jordan Cannon that plated Hayden Nash, Payne, and Cade Harris. Onalaska scored their lone run in the top of the 5th but the Tigers added 3 more in the 5th on a RBI single by Kyle Harris, a fielder's choice and a sacrifice fly by Payne. Lefty Chance Carrigan pitched 4 1/3 innings allowing 1 run and Cannon got the final 2 outs in the top of the 5th.

The Tigers hosted the Hempstead Bobcats on March 22nd and again the game went 5 innings as the Tigers won 10-0. The Tigers got on the board in the 1st inning as Cannon drove in Payne with a single. The Tigers came up big in the 2nd inning scoring 5 times as Carrigan, Ty Tollett, Payne, Cade Harris and Cannon crossed the plate to give the Tigers a quick 6-0 lead. The Tigers added 2 runs in the 4th as Nash and Payne came around to score. The Tigers scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 5th and the 10 run rule was invoked and the Tigers had an easy 10-0 win.

Southpaw Wacey Brown went 4 innings allowing no runs on 1 hit, struck out 2 and walked 2 .Tollett came in and tossed 1 inning allowing only a lead off single. Carrigan scored 2 runs and had an RBI and Nash drove in the final run with a solid single to left. The Tigers have only a defeat to New Waverly to mar their record in district action and look strong as the 2nd half of district begins.

The Tigers travel to Franklin for a game on March 26th and are at home against Hearne on March 28th.
