GUNNER SMITH SMACKED a sixth-inning single which led to Lugoff- Elgins second run of the game in Saturdays loss to Mid-Carolina.
Randy Stokes was fine with the 11 hits which his Lugoff-Elgin baseball team piled up in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to Mid-Carolina at River Bluff High School.What bothered the Demons’ boss more, however, were the dozen runners that his offense left stranded in the opening round game of the Carolina Ale House Classic.“You look at our line score,” Stokes said, “and you think that we would have won the game.“The storyline was our missing opportunities to score run when we had guys on base. We did a good job of getting guys on and into scoring position, but we did not get enough hits in the clutch. One thing which I thought we did well in our pre-season games was getting guys in scoring position and then, getting them in.”The Rebels, who were the designated home team in this game, scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to collect the win.
