The Chiefland High baseball team won its fourth straight game last Thursday night, March 28, as Ory Pitts kept visiting P.K. Yonge in check in a 6-3 Indian decision.

The victory upped Chiefland?s record to 13-2 overall and 9-1 in district. P.K. fell to 9-6 and 5-4.

Pitts improved his mound mark to 6-1. Losing pitcher Alex Mikkelsen saw his record dip to 5-3.

Chiefland scored single tallies in the first and second frames to go up 2-0. In the second, Matt Williams singled with two outs. Mikkelsen fanned Mike Perkins, but the ball got past the catcher and back to the screen. Perkins was safe at first, bringing Dane Cothron to the plate. The red-hot lefty swinger sliced a double down the left field line to bring in Williams.

P.K. closed it to 2-1 in the top of the third, but Chiefland answered with two in its half to take a 4-1 lead. Brent Slaughter and Kyle Shivers had infield hits –both moving up when the throw from short was wild. Clenton Wasson sent a sacrifice fly to right, Slaughter just beating a good throw home. Shivers scored on a balk by Mikkelsen.

Chiefland is out of district Thursday, April 3, at Mayo.
