Softball: Sharks trio pitches one-hitter; Tigers rally late

sjsoft-moundmeetingThe St. James softball team bounced back from Saturday’s playoff loss to Beaufort with a 7-0 victory over visiting Lower Richland to set up a rematch with the Lady Bobcats with a trip to the Class 4A Lower State championship series at stake.

Three St. James pitchers combined to toss a one-hitter, with starter Brooks Spiva getting the win. Relievers Natalie Spiva and Kendall Heidt combined for four hitless innings, with Heidt earning four of the trio’s seven strikeouts.

Lead-off hitter Dominique Gross led the Lady Sharks with a 3-for-3 outing at the plate, including an RBI and two runs scored. Skye Bailey went 2-for-3 with two runs scored, and Brooks Spiva helped her own cause with an RBI triple. St. James tallied 10 hits and scored at least one run in all six innings.

St. James visits Beaufort on Wednesday with the district title on the line. The Lady Sharks need to win two games while the Lady Bobcats only need one win to clinch and advance.

* Conway 7, River Bluff 6: The Lady Tigers rallied back from a 6-0 deficit in the fifth inning by scoring seven unanswered runs – the last one in the bottom of the eighth for a walk-off win to avoid elimination.

Conway junior Neci Hemingway got the win on the mound and sparked the rally at the plate with a three-run home run and a 2-for-4 performance. Eighth-grader McKynzie Krajc also went 2-for-4 and scored the game-tying and game-winning runs on key base-running plays.

The Lady Tigers advance to face Fort Dorchester in a rematch of Saturday’s 5-4 loss. Conway must win two games to move on to the Class 5A Lower State championship series.

* Chapin 5, North Myrtle Beach 1: The Lady Chiefs were eliminated from the playoffs with a road loss to the Lady Eagles.
