Softball: MB, CF, SJ cruise to wins in region openers

The Myrtle Beach softball team opened Region 7-4A play in a convincing fashion on the road Tuesday by blowing out Wilson 11-2.

Carly Grace Bodge pitched a complete game four-hitter for the win and got lots of offensive support from Madison Needle (3 for 4, 4 RBIs and 2 runs scored). Dakota Hansen and Alexis Burford both went 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs, and McKenzie Coble went 2 for 4 with 2 doubles.

The Lady Seahawks return to action Friday at home against St. James.

* Carolina Forest 14, Sumter 1: Catie McGovern pitched a complete-game three-hitter and pounded out five RBIs to lead the Lady Panthers to a Region 6-5A opening victory over Sumter.

With the game tied at 1-all entering the fourth inning, the Lady Panthers tallied four runs in the fourth and sixth, then added five more in the seventh for good measure. In all they had 15 hits, three for McGovern and two apiece from Riley McTiernan and Desi Santos.

McGovern struck out nine batters and cruised after allowing one run in the first inning.

* St. James 15, North Myrtle Beach 5: The Lady Sharks needed only five innings to post a mercy rule victory over the visiting Lady Chiefs in the Region 7-4A opener for both teams.

North Myrtle Beach actually outhit St. James by a 9-7margin but 10 walks and three errors led to 10 unearned runs for the Lady Sharks. Brooks Spiva struck out six and allowed no walks to get the win, and she added a triple at the plate.

Braidyn Armstrong (1 RBI, 2 runs scored) and Maq Schult (2 RBI, 1 run scored) helped St. James tally six runs in the first and five runs in the second to put the game away early.

St. James visits Myrtle Beach on Friday for a showdown of region unbeatens.
