Barbe won big Tuesday night to join Sulphur in the second round of the Class 5A baseball playoffs.
The top-seeded Bucs crushed Grace King 11-0 in five innings.
Now Barbe and No. 16 Sulphur, which throttled Acadiana 10-0 in the first round, will face off in a best-of-three series in the regional round.
This is the first season that the regional and quarterfinal rounds are best-of-three series. The LHSAA made the change in Class 5A only, the brackets for all other classes follow the traditional single-elimination format. Also, the 5A playoffs will revert back to single elimination for the semifinal and championship rounds.
Barbe is set to host Sulphur at 6 p.m. Friday in Game 1 while the Tors will host the Bucs in Game 2 at 1 p.m. Saturday. A third game, if necessary, is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday at Barbe.
Twenty other teams from Southwest Louisiana joined Barbe and Sulphur in the postseason Tuesday when the Louisiana High School Athletic Association released the playoff brackets for Classes 4A, 3A, 2A, 1A, B and C.
First-round games in Classes 4A-C are set to begin Thursday. The regional-round matchups will be played May 7 and the quarterfinal round is scheduled for May 12.
The semifinal and championship rounds for all seven classes will be played May 15-17 at McMurry Park in Sulphur.
