District 1-5A teams post shutouts on first day

Both Byrd and Captain Shreve posted shutout wins on the first day of the Class 5A baseball playoffs in Shreveport Tuesday.
Byrd's Matt Sharp pitched a one-hitter with 10 strikeouts in leading the Yellow Jackets to a 3-0 win over Walker. Peter Pizarro had the biggest hit of the day for Byrd with a solo home run.
Alex Fliss pitched a shutout in Captain Shreve's 10-0 five inning run ruled win over Central-Baton Rouge. Fliss (5-3) allowed just four hits and struckout five in his five innings of work. Michael Schimpf was 3-for-3 at the plate and Peyton Attaway and Daniel Midyett were both 2-for-3 with Midyett driving in a pair of runs. Shreve will now travel to Baton Rouge next Monday to face Catholic, the No. 1 seed in the bracket.
