Braves erupt for 12-run inning in season opener

socbase-11pitchThe Socastee High baseball team’s season-opener was over almost before it began.

Coming off a 24-9 record and a trip to the Lower State Finals, the Braves (1-0) entered the 2014 campaign Wednesday with high hopes and quickly backed them up, putting up 12 runs against visiting West Brunswick (NC) in the second inning en route to a convincing 13-3 victory.

Socastee sent 18 hitters to the plate in the decisive second inning, batting through the order twice against the Trojans (4-2). All 12 of the Braves’ RBIs came in the second frame.

Kyle Smith went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and Buck Bacot used a bases-clearing double to account for three of his four RBIs on the day. Hunter Renfrow (1-3) and Bubba Martin (1-3) added two RBIs.

Socastee starting pitcher Trevor Bigham went 2 1/3 innings on the mound for the Braves before giving way to Justin Dowd, who handled the final 2 2/3 frames in the mercy-rule shortened game.

Socastee returns eight starters, 14 lettermen and its entire 2013 pitching staff. The Braves make a return trip to West Brunswick for a rematch on Thursday.
