With Friday having been a day off for students in Kershaw County, several members of the Camden High baseball team used part of their day to head over to American Legion Park to get in some additional batting practice for that evening’s home game with Lakewood.The time in the batting cage paid off as the Bulldogs snapped out of their offensive doldrums as they scored 15 runs on as many hits in a 15-5 victory over the Gators. The game was stopped after four and a half innings by the 10-run rule.“We finally hit the ball,” said CHS head coach Denny Beckley, whose team improved to 2-2 in Region 6-AAA play with the one-sided win.The hosts used a nine-run third frame to pull away to a 14-3 lead.Camden answered a one-run LHS first by scoring five times in the bottom of the first inning.Darius Smith got things started for the Dogs by sending the first pitch he saw into left field for a leadoff single. Ross Hough was then asked to lay down a sacrifice bunt, which was played into an error with both freshmen getting aboard.
