Chalk it up to the wooden bats. Better yet, give the credit to the two pitchers.Through five and one half innings of Monday’s Kershaw-Richland Wooden Bat Classic, host Camden held a 1-0 lead over South Florence with the CHS lead coming in spite of its getting one hit off Bruin starter Patrick Lovelace.Across the way, Bulldog starter Will Abbott was working on a mound gem of his own. It would be the Camden sophomore, however, who received four runs in the bottom of the sixth as the hosts got past their 4A visitors, 5-2.In a game which clipped along, with the first five-plus frames taking less than an hour to complete, SF out-hit the Dogs, 7-5, and its two pitchers had more strikeouts, 5-3.
