Baseball: MB loses slugfest; Conway, NMB not done yet

mbbase-hiltonheadThe Myrtle Beach High baseball team finally ran into a team swinging a similarly hot bat in Thursday night’s District 7-4A winners’ bracket showdown with visiting Hilton Head, which won the battle of the Seahawks by a 12-9 score.

Hilton Head used a six-run second inning to jump on top early but Myrtle Beach quickly closed the gap to tie it up at 7-all after three innings. But Hilton Head tacked on three runs in the fifth and two more in the seventh to get the win.

Myrtle Beach’s Jackson Thomas accounted for four of his team’s 15 hits, and Jay Morris and Jonah McElheney combined for five RBIs to lead the offense. Billy Leckie relieved starter Lawson Cribb in the fourth and took the loss.

Myrtle Beach will host the loser of Chapin-Lakewood on Saturday.

* Conway 7, West Florence 3: The Tigers staved off elimination thanks to a complete-game win by Brett Young and a big night at the plate for Blake Jordan.

Jordan’s two-RBI single in the first inning allowed the Tigers to jump out on top, and his three-RBI triple in the fourth put Conway on top 6-1 – more than enough offense for Young.

Conway travels to Wando on Saturday for an elimination game.

* North Myrtle Beach 2, Berkeley 1: The Chiefs rallied in ths seventh inning to beat the Stags and avoid elimination.

North Myrtle Beach’s Craig Motto hit the game-winning RBI single to score Donald Hansis. Dylan Doolittle picked up the win for the Chiefs.

The win gives North Myrtle Beach a second shot at Darlington, which won the district opener, on Saturday.

* Beaufort 14, St. James 4: The Sharks struggled after making a long road trip for the second straight day, falling to Beaufort just hours after their 10th inning win over Hartsville in the first round.

The Sharks face a rematch with Hartsville – this time at home – in an elimination game Saturday.

* Fort Dorchester 6, Carolina Forest 2: The Panthers were eliminated from the playoffs with a loss to the Patriots.

Carolina Forest Max Ryerson went 3-for-3 with a homer and a double to lead the Panthers but it wasn’t enough to stay alive.
