Sumrall High's 67-Game Win Streak Ends

 HATTIESBURG, MS (WLBT) - The streak has ended.

Sumrall High School's 67-game baseball winning streak, a Mississippi record, came to an end, courtesy of the Oak Grove Warriors, in the Lamar County Tournament tonight.

Oak Grove won the game 5-1 behind the one-hit pitching of sophomore Tyler Odom and senior Hunter Curtis. Odom, who had only pitched 6 2/3 innings this season, did not give up a hit until the seventh inning when Connor Barron hit a solo home run for Sumrall.

 

Curtis hit a Sumrall batter when he came to the mound – Oak Grove coach Chris McCardle got ejected after arguing the disputed call – but got out of it with a double play and ground out.

 

Scott Weathersby drove in three runs for Oak Grove (20-6). Odom also had two hits, as did Curtis.

 

Before tonight, Sumrall was 25-0 this season after beating Purvis 21-3 earlier in the day. Sumrall, the two-time Class 3A defending state champion, also did not lose last season.

 

The national high school record for most consecutive wins of 75 is held by Homer, Mich.
