Baseball: Shutouts extend life for Seahawks, Panthers

mbbase-4runThe Myrtle Beach High baseball team kept its season alive by taking down visiting Hilton Head 2-0 in a district elimination game on Wednesday.

The top-seeded Seahawks got all the offense they needed in the first inning, and pitcher Praise Thorsen pitched a complete-game shutout for the win. Thorsen struck out eight batters and walked only one in the three-hitter.

Myrtle Beach’s Andrew Morris and Michael Calamari had first-inning RBIs to plate Shane Faulk and Drayton Arnold for a quick 2-0 lead. It was a pitchers’ duel the rest of the way with Thorsen getting the upper hand.

The Seahawks travel for Friday’s district final at Aiken, which knocked off Myrtle Beach in the first round by a 6-0 score. The Seahawks need to win twice to advance to the Lower State tournament.

* Carolina Forest 3, James Island 0: The Panthers won their eighth straight game in shutout fashion to advance to the Class 4A Lower State tournament.

Jakob Frishmuth pitched a complete-game six-hitter and struck out seven, including the game-clinching final out with the bases loaded.

Carolina Forest’s Patrick Orlando and Jared Lembcke drove in runs to lead the Panthers’ five-hit effort.

Carolina Forest will travel to the winner of the Sumter-Summerville game for the opening round of the Lower State tournament on Saturday.

* South Aiken 3, Socastee 2: The Braves’ season came to an exciting but disappointing finish in an extra-inning, walk-off loss at South Aiken.

Tied at 2-all in the 10th, the Stallions pushed across the game-winner on a bases-loaded despite a four-hit effort by Socastee’s pitching staff. Jon Yarbrough took the loss for the Braves.

Socastee’s Devin Melko went 2-for-4 and Dylan Thompson drove in a run as the Braves tied the game with a run in the fifth. Both sides turned to their pitching and defense until the deciding run.

* Swansea 3, St. James 1: The Sharks’ season came to a close against visiting Swansea in a district elimination game.

St. James was held to only three hits and didn’t get on the scoreboard until the bottom of the seventh. After being handcuffed by Swansea starter Josiah Sightler all day, the Sharks finally got to him for a run by Cam Dean, but Ryan McElveen came on for the save.
