You knew somebody was going to pay the price after Lugoff-Elgin dropped a 5-4 heartbreaker to rival Camden in last Wednesday night’s home opener. That somebody was Midland Valley.

Unleashing a 17-hit attack on the host Mustangs, the Demons breezed to an 18-3 win over Midland Valley in a non-region game played Friday night.

MV actually led, 3-2, after three innings only for the Demons (3-2) to blow this one open with eight runs in the fifth before tacking on eight more runs in the top of the seventh.

The Demons trailed, 3-2, in the top of the fifth in an inning in which Jake Laffin smacked a two-run triple to help turn the momentum in L-E’s favor.

Noah Rabon led the fifth off for the guests with a single to right. Bradwin Salmond then reached on an error before Laffin clubbed his three-bagger to center. Justin Dorton followed with an RBI single in an inning in which Zac Branham’s single plated two runners while Rabon and Laffin each had run-scoring singles in the six-hit frame.

Two innings later, the Demons made it a rout by tacking on eight runs on seven hits while sending 13 batters to the plate and scoring all eight runs with two outs. Garrett Cassidy had an RBI single in the seventh while Mason Cassidy and Billy Langford each drove in two runs with singles. Brandon Langford also had an RBI single for the winners.

Laffin had two hits and four RBI for the winners who received two hits each from Billy Langford, Salmond, Garrett Cassidy, Mason Cassidy and Dorton. Mason Cassidy drove in three runs while Billy Langford and Branham each had a two RBI night.

Dorton went the first five frames to get his first mound win of the season. The senior lefty scattered eight hits while allowing two earned runs. He fanned one. Branham went the final two frames and did not allow a hit while striking out five batters.
