SUMTER -- The Sumter P-15’s and the Lexington Post 7 baseball teams will continue their first-round series in the American Legion state playoffs after having a benches-clearing brawl bring a premature end to the opening game on Tuesday at Riley Park. After a meeting with the coaches and athletic directors from both teams and the umpires from the game with the state baseball committee and the head of the umpires, it was determined the teams would play a best-of-three series which was scheduled to begin on Thursday in Sumter. The second game will be played tonight in Lexington with a third game, if needed, Saturday in Sumter.
