Baseball: Tigers top Wave; NMB pounds Hilton Head

The Conway High baseball team pulled a big road upset in the first round of the SCHSL Class 5A district playoffs Wednesday by knocking off Summerville 3-2.

Trailing 2-1 in the sixth inning, the Tigers proved more than worthy of their at-large postseason bid by rallying past the top-seeded Green Wave to take the late lead.

Conway’s Seth Skipper two-out single scored Will Smith and Jordan Hilburn for the game-tying and eventual game-winning runs. Smith got the win on the mound.

The Tigers travel to Dutch Fork for Thursday’s winners’ bracket showdown. All district tournaments are double-elimination.

The Chiefs travel to top-seeded Chapin on Thursday.

* St. James 10, Berkeley 0: The top-seeded Sharks (22-4) carried their impressive play over into the postseason Wednesday with a shutout victory over the visiting Stags.
