Jeff Davis pitchers Caleb Leggett and Braydon Creech combined on a five-inning no-hitter and an 8-0 win over Lyons in the winners bracket, of the Junior Boys Division, of the Lyons Youth Tournament. JD opened up the tourney with a 9-0 victory over Telfair County.

Leggett pitched 4 1/3 innings. The only two Lyons base runners reached when Devonte Willis was hit by a pitch in the third inning and Justin Dees walked in the fourth. The left-hander struck out seven and only one Lyons out was made in the outfield- a fly ball to right by Alex Gordy for the first out of the game.

Creech struck out a batter and induced a grounder to short to end the game.

Leggett went 3-for-3 with three singles and two runs scored.

Jeff Davis was scheduled to  play Appling County, on Monday, in the winners bracket. However, Jeff Davis will forfeit that game due to a baseball banquet and JD will move into the losers bracket.
