Mingo Bay Baseball: Sharks rally late, Seahawks win big

mbbase-10catchThe St. James High baseball team got back on the winning track with a dramatic 4-3 victory over South Lakes (VA) in Thursday’s fourth round of the Mingo Bay Baseball Classic.

St. James Trystan Freeman delivered a game-winning, walk-off RBI double to help the Sharks improve to 3-1 in the prestigious tournament. Overall, St. James has won four of its last five outings.

The Sharks outhit South Lake by a 6-5 margin, with half of their hits coming off the bat of Jacob English’s 3-for-3 day at the playe with an RBI and a run scored.

St. James starter Kolby Robtoy struck out eight batters before being lifted in the fourth, when South Lake scored a pair of runs to tie it at 3-all. Nick Bray came on to throw 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn his second win of the week.

The Sharks play at 11 a.m. Friday in their tourney finale.

* Myrtle Beach 15, Spring Valley (WV) 2: The Seahawks scored the game’s first seven runs over the opening three innings, followed by a relentless eight-run inning in the fourth to trigger the mercy rule.

Myrtle Beach’s Jonah McElheney (three RBIs) and Jackson Thomas (two RBIs) each had three hits, and Lawson Cribb had a pair of hits and three RBIs to lead the Seahawks’ 12-hit parade.

Myrtle Beach’s Tyler Burgess pitched four solid innings, striking out five and allowing only three hits.

The Seahawks play their tournament finale at 9 a.m. Friday.

* Carolina Forest 3, Robinson (VA) 0: Junior Austin Padgett pitched four scoreless innings to get the win and freshman David Wellons pitched the final three frames to preserve the shutout and get the save.

Freshman infielder Nolan Edwards turned a Derek Jeter-like double play in the top of the seventh inning to keep Robinson off the scoreboard. Senior Christian Maggio, juniors Matt Beale, Max Ryerson, Dylan Jones, and sophomore Chase Hughes all had hits for the Panthers.

The Panthers are in action at 11 a.m. Friday in the finals of their respective bracket.
