Wade Burr was the tough-luck losing pitcher as the Kershaw County Post 17 Junior American Legion baseball team dropped a 2-1 decision against South Florence last Friday night in a game played at American Legion Park in Camden.
Burr, a rising junior at Lugoff-Elgin High School, went six innings, giving up both South Florence runs on just one hit. Vic Cooper earned the mound win for the guests as he threw a complete game five-hitter at Erik Densmore’s squad.
Kershaw County’s offense was led by newcomer Nathan Lee, who recently moved to Lugoff from Georgia. Lee went 2-for-3 on the night. Christian Flick, a rising sophomore at Camden High, was 1-for-3, driving in the locals’ only run while also being hit by a pitch. Lugoff-Elgin rising junior Ethan Beasley also went 1-for-3 with a walk while North Central rising sophomore John Bowers was 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base.
The Juniors’ game at Lake City on Monday night was rained out. They will return to American Legion Park on Wednesday to meet Manning in a 7 p.m. start.

Seniors come home empty-handed: It was a long shot, at best, but the Kershaw County Post 17 American Legion baseball team was told by Sumter head coach Curtis Johnson to make the trip to Riley Park on Monday for that evening’s scheduled 7 p.m. League III game.
Members of the host P-15s had been working on the wet field throughout the day in hopes of playing the game, albeit, with a later starting time.
Sumter officials had hoped to start the game sometime between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., only to have one more round of rain hit, which rendered the field unplayable as the 17ers packed their gear and returned home.
The game will now be played on Tuesday, July 2, which, weather permitting, will be the final game of the regular season for Craig Smith and company.
The 17ers will be back at American Legion Park in Camden on Thursday night for a 7 p.m. game against Cheraw before traveling to meet Hartsville on Friday night at 7 p.m. Smith is still trying to work out a make-up game with Cheraw for a road game which was rained out last Friday.
