Baseball: Sharks, Panthers cap first-half region sweeps

sjbase-7pitchThe St. James High baseball team completed a first-half sweep of Region 7-3A opponents with an 8-1 victory over visiting Wilson on Tuesday at Shark Park.

The Sharks improved to a perfect 5-0 in region play midway through the league schedule and look to lock up the title in the coming weeks by playing the same impressive fashion as they did in the first half.

St. James starter Anthony Peck allowed only three hits and struck out six in six innings of work, and reliever Maddy Hammonds struck out all three batters he faced to close out the seventh.

The Sharks pounded out 10 hits and scored in each of the first four innings. Grayson Stoneking went 2-for-2 with two RBIs and one run scored, Liam Bloom went 2-for-3 with an RBI and three runs scored, and Parker Rabon went 2-for-3 with one RBI and one run scored. Peck helped his own cause with a 2-for-3 day at the plate.

* Carolina Forest 8, Conway 3: The No. 2-ranked Panthers improved to a perfect 5-0 in Region 6-4A with a win over the rival Tigers.

Jakob Frishmuth got the win on the mound for the Panthers and also hit a solo home run to lead the Panthers. Hunter Baiden went 3-for-4 with a double, and Dylan Roberts, Patrick Orlando and Joey Lewandowski had RBI doubles.

* Myrtle Beach 9, Georgetown 8: The Seahawks survived a wild game against the host Bulldogs to escape with a one-run win and help keep them in the hunt for a playoff spot.

The Seahawks (3-2 Region 7-3A) appeared to break open a tight game when they scored five runs in the top of the sixth for an 8-2 lead, but the Bulldogs answered with four in the bottom of the frame to keep it close.

Myrtle Beach’s insurance run in the seventh proved to be the game-winner after Georgetown added two more in the bottom of the frame but couldn’t push across the tying run.

Myrtle Beach’s Jackson Thomas went 5-for-5 at the plate to lead the Seahawks’ 15-hit performance. Michael Calamari pitched six innings and struck out three but had to overcome five errors.

* Lake City 6, North Myrtle Beach 5: The Chiefs fell into a three-way tie for second place in Region 7-3A with a walk-off loss to the host Panthers. The Chiefs surrendered the game-winner in the seventh inning to fall to 3-2 in league play.

Dalton Simpson led North Myrtle Beach’s offense threat by getting on base three times, scoring one run and driving in another. He doubled in the four-run third inning and the Chiefs took a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the fifth, but Lake City scored two in the fourth and three in the fifth to even the score before pushing across the game-winner in the seventh.
