Everywhere Trayvan Harris goes around Partin Park his peers ask him one question. “How many home runs have you hit?” His answer, after Lyons 18-3 win over Metter, at Little Fenway, in the Lyons Youth Tournament, was 28. Harris, who flied out to deep left his first time up, smacked a three-run homer over the Green Monster in the second inning. He also singled in a run in the third inning.

Harris isn’t the only Lyons All-Star capable of driving the ball deep. Jesus Quintero hit two, two-run home runs in his 2-for-3 game. Harris plays third base and Quintero is the shortstop and both are also excellent defensive players. Quintero jumped up in the air and caught a liner and Harris started a 5-4-3 double play which ended the scheduled six inning game, three innings early. D.J. Austin, who plays the pitchers position, also caught a liner and he turned his catch into a double play with a throw to third base.

Gage Brantley doubles to left field

The third Lyons slugger in this first round game was Gage Brantley. The catcher went 3-for-3 with two doubles and two runs batted in.

Leadoff hitter Cameron Ledford went 3-for-3 with a run driven in, Kip Mosley was 2-for-3 with two RBI, T.J. Stanley 3-for-3 with one run batted in, D.J. Austin 2-for-3, Kameron Clark 1-for-3 with two RBI, Cameron Harris 1-for-2 and Tucker Braddy, Britton Tabor, Austin Humprey and Ryder Sears each had one hit. Sears drove in a run.
