 Crescent City Sports to live stream Byrd-Rummel baseball playoff series starting Thursday

Crescent City Sports’ extensive live streaming coverage of high school baseball continues this week with the best-of-three Division I playoff quarterfinal between C.E. Byrd and Archbishop Rummel.

CCS will live stream the entire series between the Yellow Jackets and Raiders from New Orleans’ Kirsch-Rooney Stadium beginning with Game 1 Thursday and continuing Friday with Game 2 (and if necessary, Game 3). The website’s live coverage will begin just prior to the 4 p.m. first pitch each day, with CCS’ Ken Trahan and Danny Riehm describing the action.

The series is a matchup of the Nos. 4 and 5 seeds in Division I, in what could be a battle of strength against strength.

The Yellow Jackets (20-15) swept Scotlandville in the opening round and have won 10 of their last 11 games, with the only loss in that span to fellow Division I quarterfinalist Evangel Christian. In that stretch, Byrd has scored 10 or more runs eight times.

The Raiders (19-12) got an opening-round bye and home field in the quarterfinals after a late-season surge that included two-game sweeps of St. Augustine and Jesuit to close District 9-5A play. Rummel has relied on pitching and defense down the stretch, allowing an average of 2.2 runs per game in its last five games.

The teams met once during the regular season, with Rummel defeating Byrd 9-3 on March 1 in Sterlington as part of the Trey Altick Memorial Tournament.

Crescent City Sports will feature live streaming of no fewer than 35 high school sporting events throughout the 2018-19 school year. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce up to 10 more events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
