HAYS, Kan. – The Hays High baseball team is 9-0 after a 7-0 forfeit win over Great Bend Tuesday at the Hays High Field. The Indians were trailing 3-2 in the fourth when the Panthers used an ineligible pitcher.
Joey Soupiset, who threw Friday in the Panthers win over Liberal, was brought in relief in the fourth but needed to sit another day due to KSHSAA pitch count rules.
Hays High protested and was awarded the win.
The Indians eventually tied the game in the bottom of the fifth when it was called to save pitchers.
Trey Riggs allowed three runs, two earned on three hits over five innings with nine strikeouts and no walks.
The Indians host Dodge City Friday in a doubleheader.
