Sports Report for Wednesday, 3-13-19

Local Notes: 


  • Baseball: Union 10 – Clinton 0… Sorry no details on this game other than it only went 5 innings… If I get details on this game I will bring them to you later.
  • Softball… The Red Devil softball team was scheduled to host Union last night and Coach Caughman did not let me know how they came out… If I find out how they did I will let you know.




  • Softball: Laurens 13 – Westside 0 in 6… The Laurens Raider softball teams hosted the Westside Rams last night in a JV-varsity doubleheader… In the varsity game, the Raiders scored 10 runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to end the game on the 10 run rule with Cassie Plaia ending the game on with a grand slam homerun to put the Raiders up 13-0… Sources tell me that this is her first homerun of any type in varsity softball game… The Raiders pounded out 16 hits in the game with Plaia going 4 for 5 with 6 RBIs… Octavia Johnson and Michaela Smith also had 3 hits each… Rachel Delio picked up the complete game win giving up only 2 hits while striking out 11 and walking none… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: 3-12-19-LSB-Westside… For the games scorecard, click on the following: 3-12-19-LSB-Westside-SC.


  • Baseball: Greenwood 4 – Laurens 2… Now the news is not as good for the Raider baseball team as they traveled down to Greenwood HS yesterday to take on the Eagles and they came up on the short side of a 4-2 score… The score was tied 1-1 after one inning of play and 3-2 Greenwood after two innings… Greenwood picked up an insurance win in the fifth inning and held the Raiders scoreless the rest of the way… Tanner Smith had 3 of the Raiders 5 hits… Heath Bragg took the complete game loss… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: 3-12-19-LBB-Greenwood… For the games scorecard, click on the following: 3-12-19-LBB-Greenwood-SC… The Raiders will be back in action tonight as they host Boiling Springs at Ed Prescott Field with first pitch in a JV-varsity doubleheader scheduled for 5:00 pm… Due to circumstances beyond our control we will NOT be broadcasting the varsity game.


 Laurens Academy:

  • Baseball Postponed (Again)… As you might remember, the Laurens Academy Crusader baseball team was supposed to play their home opener with Shannon Forrest Monday but the field was too wet so they postponed it yesterday… Well yesterday the field was still a little too w et and the game once more postponed until today at 5:00 pm… Good luck to the Crusader today!
