Trying to juggle a pitching staff which was asked to do more than usual during a four-game slate of games last week, Kershaw County Post 17 American Legion head coach Craig Smith and pitching coach Jeremy Ray put Colin Teague to the test on Monday night.And despite what turned out to be a 12-2 loss to League IV-leading West Columbia, Teague showed the maturity of a player moex erpeinced thane one coming off a strong freshman season pitching for the Lugoff-Elgin junior varsity squad.Going up against West Columbia (12-2), Teague worked the first five innings against a Post 79 squad whose lineup is littered with college players or, players who will play college baseball next year. Smith said his young starter more than held his own against the hosts in a game played at Airport High School.“Colin pitched five good innings for us,” Smith said in assessing Teague’s night on the mound. “He pitched very well against a very good hitting ballclub.“We were real pleased with Colin’s performance.
