In a matchup between two top teams in their respective classes, it came down to a pitchers' duel.

South Beauregard, led by pitcher Avery Davis, outlasted Pitkin, 4-2, to pick up its 14th win of the season Thursday night at Pitkin High School.

Davis went all seven innings, striking out three and giving up six hits.

"I think he pounded the zone and threw a lot of strikes," South Beauregard head coach Jeremy Deville said. "Those guys are good. They put the ball in play. They don't strike out much and put pressure on you. I thought the defense played well. They had a chance for a big inning, but we took it away. That was big."

On the other side, Jacob Thompson also threw a complete game, striking out three Knights and giving up three hits.

South Beauregard went up 1-0 in the second inning after Dylan Jimenez grounded out to score Chase Fisher.

In the top of fifth inning, Blake Davenport, pinch running for Gunner Morgan, scored on a baulk by Thompson, but Pitkin got itself on the board with an RBI double by Adrain Nolen to score Hunter Ford in the latter half of the inning.

Leland Broussard drove in two runs with a single to make it 4-1 in the top of the sixth to give South Beauregard (14-1) some breathing room.

"The second time around you've seen a pitcher, you make adjustments and usually do a little better," Deville said. "They felt more comfortable up there. We've been doing that all year. We haven't been banging balls off the wall; we just put pressure on them."

The Eagles (10-2) scored on a line drive by Kyle McKee in the bottom of the inning to make it 4-2, but came up empty in the final inning.

Charles Keith went 2-for-3 for South Beauregard, and Nolen went 2-for-4 with an RBI for Pitkin.

The Knights are coming off a Class 3A State Championship, but lost all of its starters from that squad. While they have only lost one game this season, there is still room to improve.

"The speed of the game, at first, kind of got to them," Deville said. "But lately, it's been getting better. We played a lot in the summer, and that helped. They work hard. It's paying off."
