Baseball: CF, MB, SJ claim victories in region openers

sjbase-diveThe Myrtle Beach High boys baseball team won its Region 7-3A opener Tuesday in dramatic fashion, scoring the game-winning run in the sixth inning of a back-and-forth affair at Wilson for an 8-7 victory.

Both teams scored three runs in the first inning, followed by one each in the second to level it at 4-all. But the Seahawks tallied two runs in the third and never trailed again, despite several threats by the Tigers. Wilson scored two in the fifth to cut the deficit to 7-6. Both teams scored one run in the sixth and Myrtle Beach closed it out in the scoreless seventh.

Myrtle Beach’s Luke Edwards had a game-high three hits, and teammates Jackson Thomas and Jack Dixon had two hits and two RBIs apiece. The Seahawks had a total of 10 hits but also committed three errors to keep Wilson in the game. Michael Calamari and Dixon pitched three innings apiece, allowing a combined six hits while striking out nine.

* Carolina Forest 9, West Florence 2: Fresh off their championship in the IP Classic, the Panthers didn’t miss a beat by defeating West Florence on the road in the Region 6-4A opener for both teams.

Trailing 2-11 through four innings, the Panthers finally found some offensive power and exploded for five runs in the fifth frame. They added three more runs in the seventh for insurance.

Carolina Forest’s Jacob Frishmuth threw six solid innings and also hit a two-run home run to lead the Panthers (5-1 overall, 1-0 region). Ryan Gold went 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBIs, and Patrick Orlando went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

* St. James 10, North Myrtle Beach 3: The Sharks scored eight unanswered runs to close the game and earn a victory over the visiting Chiefs in the Region 7-3A opener for both teams.

North Myrtle Beach took a 3-2 advantage following Dalton Simpson’s two-run homer in the top of the fourth, but St. James responded with three runs in the bottom of the frame. The Sharks added two more in the fifth and three more in the sixth, capitalizing on five errors by the Chiefs that led to four unearned runs.

St. James starter Grayson Stoneking allowed five hits over 5 1/3 innings to get the win, striking out seven to only one walk. He helped his own cause at the plate by going 2-for-4 with an RBI. Jordan Fields went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and Liam Bloom had two RBIs and two runs scored. Kolby Robtoy closed out the game.
