Sumrall (Miss.) High's bid for a national record ended over the weekend as the Bobcats lost to Oak Grove High of Hattiesburg, Miss. in a tournament, putting a stop their winning streak at 67 games.
Oak Grove's starting pitcher, sophomore Tyler Odom, pitched a gem. After pitching just 6 2/3 innings this season, Odom went six innings and didn't give up a hit until the seventh—a solo home run to Connor Barron. Senior Hunter Curtis then entered the game and retired three out of the next four hitters to earn the save.
Sumrall was ranked No. 7 in the latest Top 25 and finished at No. 7 in 2009. The record for consecutive wins is 75, set by Homer (Mich.) High from 2004-2005.
