BENTON -- Tyler Schlosser had a career day for Kelly on Thursday, leading the Hawks to a 9-3 win over South Pemiscot.

He was the winning pitcher, allowing two earned runs on five hits, one walk and four strikeouts through the first five innings.

He was also 3-for-3 with a triple, two steals and two RBIs.

"Tyler Schlosser is an excellent ballplayer, one of the best in the area in my opinion," said Kelly coach John Gant. "Not only is he a great leader on the field, he's a great athlete. He stepped up and had a big night for us. His bat had been a little quiet in the last couple of games, but he really stood out today."

Chase Deason pitched the rest of the game for Kelly with six up, six down and two strikeouts. At the plate Deason was 2-for-2 with a sacrifice.

Drew Moore was 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a double. Major Burger was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a stolen base.

"We finally played the way we can play and the way we should play," said Gant. "Hopefully the guys will keep it up for the rest of the season."

South Pemiscot's Dent was charged with the loss. Kelly (4-6) will travel to Jackson on Monday for a 4 p.m. game.

DE SOTO -- Andrew Meyr homered and had four RBIs but it was not enough as Perryville fell to 2-11. John Lorenz had a triple and two RBIs for the Pirates.
