BOURG – South Terrebonne-based South Louisiana Bank needed just over an hour Thursday afternoon to pummel Berwick High-based Taco Bell 15-0 in five innings in Swampland League play.

South Louisiana Bank pounded out 13 hits at The Swamp, led by Austin Hebert going 3-for-3 with four RBIs in the eighth spot.

“We hit the ball extremely well. They came out early to take BP, so it’s not really a shock they hit the ball the way they did,” said SLB coach Mike Barba. “Coming off of last season, it’s good to see them want to still get better.”

South Louisiana Bank (4-3-2) batted around the order and produced six runs in the first inning. Taco Bell pitcher Clay Menard walked in a pair with the bases loaded; Landon Neil and Hebert each slapped RBI singles, and Jean Luc Lapeyrouse smacked a two-run single.

SLB added five more runs in the second inning. After Peyton Parr (2-for-3) led off with a triple, Cameron Trosclair and Trey Gautreaux (2-for-3, RBI each) belted an RBI single and RBI double, respectively. An error allowed Neil to plate, and Hebert popped and two-run double for an 11-0 advantage.

Meanwhile, Trosclair (three strikeouts, three hits) and relievers Bryce Lajuanie and Christian Arceneaux limited Taco Bell to four hits. Only two Taco Bell runners got into scoring position.

“This summer I challenged the pitchers and catchers to call their own pitches, learn from each batter’s swing and throw strikes with multiple stuff,” Barba explained. “Earlier in Swampland, we got into a rhythm of do well but give up one big inning. Berwick gets a few base runners here and there, but we’re still under control on the mound because we’re thinking the game.”

SLB concluded the scoring with four runs in the fourth. A Taco Bell error allowed Gautreaux and Mason Hebert to plate, and Austin Hebert hit a two-run single.

After last season’s quarterfinals run in the playoff, Barba looks to build depth during the summer league.

“We got to develop more arms. You never have enough pitchers,” he said. “We lost three, four great seniors from last season. We’re replacing them with new guys who may not have played as much last year. So trust each other in different situations as we moved guys around or treat it like someone got ‘hurt.’ We want guys to step up and not skip a beat.”
