CHASE GALLOWAY HAD three hits and then pitched a perfect seventh inning in KC’s 18-0 rout of Georgetown Thursday.

On a warm night along the coast, Jay Lynch was not forced to work hard as Kershaw County went up, 2-0, on Georgetown with an 18-0 Thursday night win in a game played at Mike Johnson Park.

Lynch (5-1) threw 70 pitches in working the first six innings of a game stopped after seven frames by the 10-run rule. The right-hander scattered four hits, fanned seven while not issuing a walk before giving way to Chase Galloway, who worked a perfect seventh to complete the shutout.

The visitors’ offense provided Lynch with all the run support he would need in scoring the game’s first two runs in the top of the second as Cam Holley got aboard on a one-out fielders’ choice and scored on a Justin Dorton triple, his first of four RBI on the evening. Dorton made it 2-0, coming home on a throwing error.

Two innings later, KC tacked on two more runs as Galloway led off with a single and scored from second on Dorton’s one-out single to center. Dorton made it 4-0, coming across on catcher Brady White’s RBI single to center.

The roof caved in on Post 114 when KC hung up a six-spot in both the fifth and sixth frames to up the ante to 16 runs.

In the fifth, Noah Rabon reached on a one-out error. Nick Butler was then hit by a pitch before Galloway walked to load the bases for Cam Holley whose single to center drove in two runs. Dorton then drove in a run with a single to right to make it 8-0. Holley came in on Devin Beckley’s single while Dorton pushed the lead to 10-0 when he came home on a Josh Boone single to center.

Things got worse for the hosts in a six-run P-17 sixth as Butler hit a leadoff single to left and advanced to third on Galloway’s double to left. A Holley walk was trailed by a walk issued to Dorton which plated Butler. A Beckley sacrifice fly to center made it 12-0.

A Boone single drove in runs 13 and 14 while a Butler single plated runs 15 and 16.

A two-run seventh was highlighted by Boone’s two-run single as the centerfielder drove in his third and fourth runs of the night.

The 17ers banged out a season-best 18 hits in the win with Dorton going 3-for-4 with a walk while driving in four runs. Galloway had three hits while Boone went 2-for-3 with four RBI. Beckley drove in three runs while Butler and Holley had two each in the one-sided affair.
