CORNER — Clay-Chalkville jumped out to 7-0 lead after first two innings and never looked back, as they downed Corner 10-2 in Monday baseball action.

Blake Byrd drove in both Yellow Jacket runs on a hit in the fifth inning, after Cougar pitcher Khalil Williams had walked the bases full.

It was the only real trouble Williams had all day, as he struck out six Yellow Jackets in the complete-game victory.

Byrd accounted for two of Corner’s three hits for the game.

Thomas Johns was 2-for-2 with three RBIs for Clay. Michael Rodda was 2-for-3, walked twice and drove in two runs; his double was the only extra-base hit of the game.

Corner hosts Carbon Hill in its first area game of the season on Friday.
