The Notre Dame High School baseball team had little trouble winning the Mississippi County Wood Bat tournament in Charleston.

Notre Dame routed host Charleston 11-1 in five innings in Sunday's final, after the Bulldogs ripped East Prairie 10-0 in five innings the previous day.

Dylan Drury pitched a three-hitter for the Bulldogs (9-5), who have won three straight. Drury struck out 11 and walked one.

Drury, Austin Greer and Aaron Tomaszewski each had two of Notre Dame's 12 hits.

"We had a good weekend," Notre Dame coach Jeff Graviett said. "Our pitchers threw well."

Trailing 1-0, the Bulldogs went ahead for good with a six-run fourth inning. They added five in the fifth to prevail by the 10-run rule.

Notre Dame 11, Charleston 1, 5 inn.
