Among the things lost in Camden’s extended one-run bottom of the sixth in Friday’s AAA District I baseball tournament opener with Woodruff was the effect the length of the inning had on its starting pitcher Grey Hoke.In a frame in which the visiting Wolverines made two pitching changes while, for the second time of the night the Dogs would leave the bases filled, CHS carried a 3-1 lead into the top of the seventh. Having sat inside the dugout for some 15 minutes on a chilly evening, Hoke was touched up for two runs in the seventh before the third-seeded guests tacked on a pair in the eighth to come away with a 5-1 win over a Camden squad which finished second in Region 4-AAA.With the loss, the Bulldogs will head to meet top-seeded Greenville tonight at 6:30. The Red Raiders were stunned by fourth-seed Palmetto, 5-0, on Friday.“Hindsight’s always 20-20,” Beckley said of Hoke’s long stint on the bench in the bottom of the sixth.
