Horry Post 111 opens run for AL state championship

Horry Post 111 will begin its quest for an American Legion state baseball championship Monday against League I champion Goose Creek/Charleston.

P-111 finished second in League II behind Florence and will open Monday’s best-of-five state playoff series on the road. Horry will be at home Tuesday at Conway High, on the road Wednesday, and at home Thursday if the series hasn’t been decided.

According to Coach Timmy Whittaker, his troops have played well most of the season.

“We’ve had a pretty good season,” he said. “We’ve had some pitchers really step up for us and we’ve had some players step up. We lost a couple (Todd McClellan and Jacob Marlowe) to injury, but the ones we put in those spots have stepped up. It’s been an up-and-down season as far as losing our leftfielder and centerfielder to injuries. Jakob Marlowe hurt his wrist in a game and Todd McClellan hurt his arm so he can’t play.”

Florence completed a regular sweep of Horry by winning both games of a twin bill Monday at Conway High School.

P-111 also lost a pair of games recently at Florence and Lake City. Florence tallied three runs in the second inning and never looked back for an 11-4 victory last Wednesday night at Legion Field.

Florence led 4-0 early, but Horry responded with three in the top of the fifth. P-111 loaded the bases before Walt Richardson hit a two-run double and Kody Hanna came through with an RBI groundout to trim the deficit to 4-3.

Florence came through with another big inning of its own in the bottom of the fifth to regain control.

Horry dropped a 2-1 verdict at Lake City last Thursday night.

Lake City scored both of its runs in the bottom of the first and held on for the victory. Both teams managed only three hits the entire game with Todd McClellan managing all three of Horry’s safeties. McClellan scored the lone run for P-111 with Zach Wall collecting the RBI with a sacrifice force.

Hayden Franklin was the hard-luck loser on the mound. In other American Legion results, the Horry Post 111 Junior team finished second to Aynor in the League II East standings and will begin state playoff competition Monday at home versus Hannah Pamplico at 7:30 p.m.
