South Lakes opens tourney with win
The South Lakes Seahawks kicked off the BATRUP tournament in South Carolina with a 9-3 win against the host team, the Bluffton Bobcats.
With the temperature at 90 degrees for the first pitch of the 7 p.m. game, the Seahawks scored a run in the first thanks to a deep fly by senior Billy McLaughlin, who eventually scored on a wild pitch. The Seahawks added four runs in the third thanks to key hits by McLaughlin,senior Austin Schweppe and two Bobcat errors.
The Seahawks pitchers kept the Bobcats off balance all day, yielding only three hits.
McLaughlin pitched the first three innings, followed by Schweppe who retired all six men he faced. Junior Bobby Rae Allen closed out the seventh inning.
Solid defense was displayed throughout most of the game by the Seahawks including several running catches by junior left fielder Hayden Hall, a lunging grab by sophomore Josh Forrest on a line drive, and a game-ending, unassisted double play by senior shortstop Ryan Forrest.
South Lakes picked up its second win in as many games against the Whale Branch Warriors from Seabrook, S.C.
For the second straight game, the Seahawks scored in the first without a hit. South Lakes scored three runs after six consecutive walks, all with two outs.
After the Warriors took a 4-3 lead in the third, their erratic pitching continued and the Seahawks regained the lead after two more walks and a clutch, two-RBI single by McLaughlin.
The back-and-forth game continued in the fourth after Whale Branch tied it before South Lakes broke the game open with five runs on hits by juniors Austin Gibbons and Hayden Hall and McLaughlin.
Stopper Bobby Rae Allen shut down the opponents in the seventh inning for the second straight day, allowing no runs to cement the 11-9 victory.
