The Central Lafourche baseball team couldn't crack Hahnville's pitching on Tuesday, falling in a shutout district defeat.

The Tigers beat the Trojans 6-0 on the game, using dominant pitching to keep the Trojans off balance.

With the defeat, the Trojans are now 4-20 on the year, but 3-4 in district play.

The same two teams will play Wednesday in Mathews.

The Trojans struggled mightily to start the year, but have since been playing their best baseball in district with splits in all of their series so far. To beat Hahnville Wednesday, the Trojans will have to figure out the Tigers' dominant arms. 

The Tigers are 5-0 in district play and have allowed just 5 combined runs in those games.

Cardinals score win over Lutcher

The E.D. White baseball team has continued to flip the switch.

The youthful Cardinals started the season slow, but have flipped a switch and found a new gear in district.

On Tuesday, they beat Lutcher 4-1, improving to 5-0 in district play.

Coach Dave Constant said on Saturday that he was so proud of the way his team has battled.

"We're young," Constant said. "We had to figure out how to get the most out of this group of kids. But we're so proud of them. They showed up every day to get better, and we've made strides. We're really proud of how far the kids have come."

In beating Lutcher, the Cardinals added a quality win to a growing resume. 

Lutcher is one of the top teams in the state in Class 3A, coming into the game with 18 wins.

But the Cardinals' pitching kept them off balance throughout the game. That pitching, Constant said, has a chance to carry the team.

"We like how our arms are coming along," he said.
