Tennessee baseball commit Dylan Loy won’t pitch in state title game

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

Tennessee commitment Dylan Loy got the start, but coach Mike Guinn intended to end his day after a single inning to preserve him for future games in  the double-elimination tournament. Then sophomore pitcher Trevan Myers gave up two runs in the bottom of the second inning and had runners on second and third. Guinn decided to bring Loy back in for the final out.

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