The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws (25-9) bowed out of the Class 4A state baseball playoffs with a 11-0 loss to the Sumrall Bobcats on Monday evening at the Brother Philip Memorial Athletic Complex.

The Bobcats (30-5) have lost just three times inside of the state of Mississippi in 2019 with one loss each to Greene County, Pass Christian, and St.


After last Thursday's 11-1 loss the Rocks rebounded on the road to collect a 5-3 victory forcing a third game in the series.

In game two, Peyton Sandrock went 5 2/3 innings allowing six hits, three runs and fanning six batters.

In the game, Colin Fredrickson tallied two hits and a RBI while Trace Rhodes and Dawson Strong added a single and an RBI.

Braxton Bean and Corban O'Bannon each had two hits and Taylor Lafontaine, Sandrock, and Cole Fletcher all had singles.

The two teams were supposed to play on Saturday but severe weather forced a cancellation of the game until Monday.

In game three, the Rocks managed just two hits in the contest while Sumrall belted out 11hits forging 11 runs en route to the run-ruled decision 11-0.

Strong had a double and Rhodes tallied a single.

However, the damage had been done and Sumrall (30-5) advanced to the Class 4A South State championship against West Lauderdale. That series begins on Thursday.
