Randy Stokes looked at his team playing four games in as many days this week combined with four games scheduled for next week and knew one thing: he needed to stretch out his pitching staff without overburdening his team’s young arms. Given that set of circumstances, the Lugoff-Elgin head coach was in desperate need of getting a lengthy start from Austin Roberts in Monday’s game with Lower Richland in the first round of the Kershaw-Richland Wooden Bat Tournament. All the sophomore lefty would do was throw a complete game as the Demons drubbed LR, 11-1, in a game stopped in the bottom of the sixth by the 10-run rule.
