There have been stretches of time in which the Kershaw County American Legion baseball team went more than a full calendar year without being able to get a win over perennial state power Sumter. So, beating the P-15s twice within 24 hours is pretty heady stuff.On a night in which Post 17 was looking to avoid playing a fourth game in as many days, KC locked up second place League III with a 6-4 victory over visiting Sumter on Wednesday night at a steamy American Legion Park. That came on the heels of the P-17ers’ 4-3, 13-inning triumph on Tuesday in Sumter.The victory was the second in as many evenings for the hosts who took the three-game series with a Post 15 team which had locked down the league title by taking down KC, 3-1, on Monday.
