with a big effort, the senior gave the Bulldogs just what they wanted.
Hough, a 6-foot-2 right-hander, went the distance on the mound as the visiting Bulldogs scored a run in the top of the seventh to break a 2-all tie and give them a 3-2 win over Crestwood Tuesday night.
The victory gave Camden a 3-2 record in Region 6-AAA and a 5-5 overall mark.
Hough went seven innings in which he scattered five hits while fanning five batters and walking one.
“Will had a very productive outing for us,” said Camden head coach Denny Beckley. “He was very effective and he had a very low pitch count which enabled him to go deep in the game and to finish it out.”
The Dogs took a 1-0 lead with a run in the second with Josh Lund rapping a leadoff single before being replaced on the bases by courtesy runner Jalen Rice who would take home on a straight steal for the first run. Two innings later, the guests went on top, 2-0, as Hough was hit by a pitch with Nick Tucker running for the pitcher. After steal second, Tucker later scored on Lund’s sacrifice fly to left.
Crestwood scored solo runs in the fourth and sixth to knot things at 2-2. In the seventh, Camden received a two-out Cole Irick single. A Will Morgan single and a Darius Smith walk loaded the bases. Tucker, who came on to pinch-run for Irick, scored the game-winner as he came in on a passed ball.
Camden helped itself in the field by not committing an error.
“It was very important for us to play a clean game on defense with runs at a premium like they were in this game,” Beckley said.
Camden moved into a three-way tie with Hartsville (which fell to Lakewood on Tuesday) and Marlboro County with identical 3-2 conference records. Darlington sits atop the circuit with a perfect 5-0 mark.
Following a Thursday night non-conference game at Fairfield Central, Camden returns to Region 6-AAA play tonight with a trip to Bennettsville to take on Marlboro County.
Saturday, the Dogs host rival Lugoff-Elgin at noon as part of Dogfest, presented by the May Plant Credit Union, at CHS.
Dogfest activities will get off to an early start with the playing of the annual Camden High School Alumni Baseball Game.
Any and all former Bulldog baseball players are invited to come out to American Legion Park to play in the game which will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 11 a.m. Players need only to be dressed to play and bring their glove with them.
The varsity baseball game will follow at noon with the junior varsity game between Camden and Lugoff-Elgin closing out the festivities.
At 11 a.m., the CHS and L-E varsity softball teams will meet for the first time this season. The junior varsity softball contest between the two sides is set for 1 p.m.
