Austin Hayes smacked a grand slam to ignite a seven-run eighth inning as visiting Kershaw County rallied for a 10-7 win over Hartsville in a League III American Legion baseball game played Friday night in Kelleytown.
MANNING -- After beating Hartsville 7-4 on Tuesday in Kelleytown to improve to 2-4 in American Legion League III, Manning-Santee Post 68 had a chance to assert itself firmly in the talk for third --- and even second --- place in the standings with a victory over Kershaw County on Wednesday.

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.
Turning what was to have been a doubleheader of baseball into, basically, one single game, Kershaw County Post 17 cemented its second-place finish in League III by sweeping Wednesday's pair of games with visiting Manning-Santee.
On the night before his team was to leave to play in the first round of last weekend's Palmetto Invitational tournament along the Grand Strand, Kershaw County American Legion head coach Will Dorton expressed reservations about playing four games in less than 48 hours so close to the end of the League III season and with the state playoffs on the horizon.
