  • SB: Byrnes 5 – Laurens 2…  The Lady Raider softball team hosted the Lady Rebels of Byrnes in game 2 of the playoffs and Laurens lost for only the 5th time this season as Byrnes took a 5-2 win… Byrnes jumped on top early picking up a single run in the top of the first inning… Laurens responded in the bottom of the first by loading the bases with one out but just could not get a hit to bring in a run… That would pretty much be the story of the night as Byrnes’ pitcher Bailey Pearson limited the Raider offense to just 4 hits on the night while Byrnes pounded out 10 off 2 Raider pitchers… Byrnes picked up another 2 in the second inning to make it 3-0… Laurens finally got on the board in the 4th inning when Elizabeth Carman smashed a solo homer over the left field fence…  Laurens pulled to within 1 when Maria Williamson led off the 6th inning with a double… She later scored on a sacrifice fly by Michaela Smith… Byrnes responded with a pair of runs in the top of the 7th while the Raiders went scoreless in their half of the 7th… Williamson was the only Raider to get 2 hits… Allison Foreback took the loss pitching 3⅔ innings while Logan Hill pitched the balance of the game… Click on the following for more game statistics: 14-5-2_SB_LDHS-Byrnes-PO_Stats   Click on the following for the game scorecard: 14-5-2_SB_LDHS-Byrnes-PO_Scorecard      The team will be back in action tonight as they host Fort Mill in an elimination game at 6:30… The winner will advance to play Byrnes at Byrnes on Wednesday and must beat Byrnes twice to advance further….

  • BB: Gaffney 5 – Laurens 2… It must have been a night for 5-2 games because that is also the score of the game between the Laurens Raider baseball team and the Indians of Gaffney held last Friday at Gaffney… Unfortunately, Gaffney had the 5 and Laurens the 2 as the Raiders as the Raiders saw their season come to an end… Gaffney put 2 runs on the board in the bottom of the first aided by a couple of Raider errors and 2 in the third to take a 4-0 lead… Laurens threatened in the 4th inning having the bases loaded with 1 out but were not able to cash in on the scoring opportunity… Gaffney then added their last run in the bottom of the 4th to go up 5-0… Cody Smiley then homered in the 5th to get the Raiders on the board… Laurens collected its last run in the 6th inning when Grayson Bailes led off with a walk and later scored on a Gaffney error… Laurens threatened again in the 7th but again just could not get the clutch hit… Thomas Jones and Cody Smiley were the only 2 Raiders to have more than 1 hit on the night as Jones had 3 and Smiley 2….  The Raiders finish the season 13-10 having finished 4th in Region I-AAAA.

 

Braves: Giants 4 – Braves 1… The Braves lost their 6th game in a row as the Giants defeated them 4-1 in Atlanta yesterday…  Their season record is now 17-13 and they start a 3 game series with St. Louis tonight at The Ted.
