Dogs, Knights collect tourney wins
GUNNER SMITH had two of L-Es six hits in Thursdays loss to Airport.
Camden exploded for 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to break open what had been a fairly close game with Trinity-Byrnes academy as the Bulldogs took a 14-1 victory in Thursday night’s opening round of the Pee Dee Pre-Season Baseball Invitational at Kellytown Field.The game came five days after the scheduled opening day of the eight-team event which was delayed by rain and wet grounds as the tournament went from each team having four games to playing only three without a champion being named.CHS head coach Denny Beckley said his team was champing at the bit to hit the field.“Our guys were real excited about finally being able to get that first game in,” said Beckley, whose team collected 10 hits on the night. “This was a close game until the bottom of the fourth inning. The final score was not indicative of how this game went. (Trinity-Byrnes) is not as bad a team as the score looks.”After T-B scored a run in the top of the first, the Dogs hung up a two spot with Cole Irick, who had three hits on the night, rapping a single and stealing second base.
