CAMERON â€” It took nine hard-fought innings, but the Poteau Pirates baseball team was able to get past the Spiro Bulldogs 10-9 in nine innings to win the 32nd LeFlore County Baseball Tournament on Sunday afternoon.

The Bulldogs had to come through the loserâ€™s bracket as they routed Panama 14-1 in three innings Friday night at Poteau High Schoolâ€™s Town Creek Park, then beat Cameron 11-4 and Spiro 11-6 on Saturday.
In loserâ€™s-bracket action, Panama edged Heavener 4-3 on Friday at Town Creek Park before losing to Spiro, while Cameron eliminated Whitesboro 9-7 on Friday night on its home field in a game that ended just before midnight.
