Baseball: Chiefs, Seahawks score one-run region wins

nmbbase-tagfirstThe North Myrtle Beach High baseball team rallied from a three-run deficit to down visiting Marlboro County 5-4 on Tuesday.

North Myrtle Beach’s Dalton Simpson tossed a two-hitter but found himself in a 3-0 hole entering the fifth inning. The Chiefs rallied to tie it up in the bottom of the fifth and tacked on two more in the sixth to knock off the Bulldogs.

North Myrtle Beach’s Chase Hudson went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a run scored to lead the Chiefs at the plate. Dylan Doolittle and Donald Hansis added RBI singles and scored one run apiece, and Simpson helped his own cause with a big hit.

* Myrtle Beach 6, St. James 5: In a see-saw battle that saw three lead changes, the Seahawks remained undefeated in Region 7-4A play by beating the host Sharks.

St. James scored one run in the first, Myrtle Beach countered with two in the second, and the Sharks went back on top with two in the third for a 3-2 lead. But the Seahawks erupted for three runs in the fourth and another in the fifth for the eventual game-winner.

Myrtle Beach was led by Lawson Cribb, who pitched six solid innings for the win and went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs at the plate. Cameron Bodge pitched a perfect seventh to close it out and added one hit, while Jonah McElheney went 2-for-4 with a run scored.

St. James got a big day from Trystan Freeman, who went 3-for-3 with three RBIs, a solo homer and a double. Parker Rabon went 2-for-3.

* Socastee 4, Conway 2: The Braves earned their first Region 6-5A victory by defeating the visiting Tigers.

Socastee scored three runs in the first inning and made it stand up thanks to a solid pitching performance by Hunter Illing. Wesley Lane went 2-for-3 with two RBIs and two runs scored, and Max Webster drove in a pair of runs to lead the Braves.

Conway’s Blake Jordan went 2-for-3 with an RBI to lead the Tigers at the plate.

* South Florence 5, Carolina Forest 1: The Panthers suffered a tough Region 6-5A loss despite a solid pitching performance by senior Bryar Johnson, who allowed only five hits and one earned run over 6 2/3 innings with 10 strikeouts and five walks.

Carolina Forest outhit the Bruins 7-6 but left 12 runners on base and committed four errors to none for the Bruins. Senior Christian Maggio (2-for-3, run scored) and juniors Max Ryerson (1-for-3, double) and Chase Hughes (1-for-2) paced the way at the plate.

The Panthers return to action Thursday at Socastee at 6:30 p.m.
