SUMTER --- Having been used sparingly --- to the tune of eight innings pitched in Kershaw County’s first 21 games of the season --- Post 17 head coach Tyler Pike did not know what he would get from Brandon Dow who was sent to the mound to face Rock Hill in Saturday morning’s first game of the South Carolina American Legion State Tournament. Dow, a 2016 Camden High graduate, failed to let the big stage or, the searing heat get to him as he worked into the fifth inning before handing the ball over to T.J. White. The right-handed combo, aided along by 11 errors, help the 17ers to an 11-6 win over the top seed from the Upper State.
