SUMTER --- Six days after having extended their season with a pair of play-in game wins, Kershaw County Post 17 used William Cobb’s two-out RBI single in the bottom of the 10th to keep its state championship dreams alive. In a game with stock market-like ups and downs, it was KC which had the highest of highs in a 10-9 win over Inman in a Monday elimination game at the South Carolina American Legion State Tournament at Riley Park. The 17ers took advantage of a third life when, on suicide squeeze play with one gone in the top of the 10th, Inman’s Jacob Corn was ruled out at the plate when he intentionally slapped the ball out of the glove of Camden catcher Will Abbott who was applying the tag on Corn.
