Eagles are Berry good in blanking Dogs

One night after suffering a one-run loss to rival Lugoff-Elgin, the Camden baseball team may have let that one setback turn into two as the Bulldogs were throttled by Chapin, 10-0, in a game stopped in the sixth inning by the 10-run rule.The loss evened the Bulldogs’ record at 2-2 in Region 4-AAA while falling to 4-5 overall.When asked if his team might have been suffering from the after-effects of Wednesday’s setback, Camden head coach Denny Beckley said that could have been a bit of a factor in his team’s performance.“I don’t like to make excuses,” Beckley said, “but I think it did (affect us) ... as much as I hate to admit that.“Our guys were not very enthusiastic. We were not near the fighting, scrappy team that we are known for being. That was very disappointing.”Chapin lefty Jake Berry handcuffed the Dogs on just four hits on a night in which the Eagles scored once in the first, three in the third before blowing things up with a five-run fifth and closing the night with one in the sixth.“Berry did a very good job of mixing up the curveball and the changeup,” Beckley said.
