Commerce baseball coach Steve Cotrell said before his team’s game against East Jackson last Tuesday (Feb. 28) that his young squad has a learning curve this year.
Well, that learning curve might not as big as one might think.
Ty Davis threw a one-hitter and Commerce jumped on the Eagles for five runs in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back in defeating East Jackson 11-1 in five innings.
Commerce plated 10 batters in the first inning for those five runs. Cole Chancey led the game off with a double and the rout was on.

The Commerce High School baseball team continues to grow as the baseball season lingers on.
The Tigers (6-4) picked up three wins last week including their first road victory of the year last Saturday at Union County. The Tigers defeated county rival East Jackson, 11-1; Union County, 9-6; and region rival Tallulah Falls, 10-1.
The lone loss came last Friday at home vs. Union County. Head coach Steve Cotrell said the team didn’t play “extremely well,” but only lost the game 5-4. They responded with the 9-6 win at Union on Saturday.
The Tigers have scored 34 runs over their last four games.
“We’re getting better,” Cotrell said. “We’re young, and we just take it day by day with the young guys.
“Just keep working and teaching and talking, trying to instill confidence.”
