PBR Louisiana Game of the Week (Week 5): Parkview Baptist vs. Live Oak

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

We are now just past the half-way point of the 2023 high school baseball season, as teams across the state have begun district play.  Last week, we traveled to Moss Bluff, LA to see one of the biggest regular season matchups of the year between Barbe and Sam Houston.  In front of a packed house, the Bucs overcame a 1-0 deficit in the 6th inning, to beat the Broncos by a score of 3-1, handing Sam Houston their first loss of the season.  The Broncos did get revenge on the Bucs, as they faced off again last Saturday, with Sam Houston coming back from a 2-1 deficit in the 7th, to beat Barbe by a score of 4-2, handing the Bucs their first loss of the season as well.  This week, we are going to travel to Watson, LA to see Parkview Baptist take on Live Oak in our Week 5 Game of the Week!  Parkview Baptist has gotten off to a stellar start this season, as they currently sit at #12 in our Power 25 Rankings with an overall record of 14-3.  Live Oak has had an equally impressive start to their year, as the Eagles sit at #6 in our Power 25 Rankings with an overall record of 16-3.  Be sure to follow us, across all of our social media platforms, for complete coverage of our Week 5 Game of the Week!
