JAKE BRAZELL WORKED INTO the seventh inning in picking up the win for L-E in Wednesdays game with Camden.
Hunter McManus is hardly the most imposing figure on the baseball field.But as far as Camden is concerned, the Lugoff-Elgin centerfielder may as well be Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider all rolled into one.On a cold night in which both CHS runs and one of the Demons’ came via the long ball, it was McManus’s gunning down Lawson Stokes at the plate in the top of the fourth which kept the hosts within a run in L-E’s 3-2 win over their cross-river rivals in Wednesday’s non-conference contest at Optimist Field.Camden, which had five runners gunned down on the base paths in one form or another, fell to 4-4 on the season with the loss. The Demons continued their current hot streak in winning their fifth in a row to improve to 6-3.Carrying a 2-1 lead into the top of the fourth, CHS got Stokes aboard when he led things off by being hit by a Jake Brazell offering. Stokes then stole second and went to third on a wild pitch, still with no outs.
