During the course of his post-game interview, Camden baseball coach Denny Beckley used the word “discombobulated” to explain his thought process when asked of tonight’s back end of a home-and-home series with Chester. That seldom used word would have sufficed to cover what took place on the playing field at American Legion Park a minute or so earlier. After having lost a three-run lead with one gone in the seventh, the host Bulldogs scored the winning run on a two-out passed ball in the bottom of the seventh to escape with a 6-5 victory over Chester in a wild contest which kept alive the Bulldogs’ hopes of earning the second seed from Region 4-AAA. The Dogs improved to 4-3 in conference play heading into tonight’s regular season finale in Chester.
