Turning 12 hits into only four runs, Lugoff-Elgin suffered a 13-4 loss to host Chapin in a non-region baseball game played on Wednesday night.As if that was not tough enough for the Demons to handled, they committed three errors in the first inning which led to three Eagle runs. The guests trailed, 6-4, after three innings only to see Chapin score seven times in the bottom of the sixth to give itself plenty of breathing room with needing to get just three more out.“We had plenty of opportunities, but we just didn’t capitalize on them,” Stokes said of his team’s offensive attack.L-E jumped to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first as Bradwin Salmond reached on an error and scored on a Blake Serpas single to right.The Eagles then scored three times in a forgettable bottom of the first.“In the first inning,” Stokes said, “we didn’t play fundamentally sound baseball. We also blew a rundown and we missed a pickoff play.
