Tennessee Baseball Committed Dylan Loy Won’t Pit in State Title Game

SMYRNA — The pitching game plan went out the window after Pigeon Forge baseball’s first inning in its 8-5 win over Forrest on Wednesday in the second round of the Class 2A state tournament.

Commitment from Tennessee Dylan Loy started, but coach Mike Guinn intended to end his day after just one run to save him for future matches in the double-elimination tournament. Then sophomore pitcher Trevan Myers allowed two runs late in the second inning and had runners in second and third. Guinn decided to bring Loy back for the finale.

“We were taking our best pitcher and putting him against the strongest part of their lineup,” Guinn said. “And he denied them. It just didn’t really work out because I had to use it more than I wanted to.”
