Sports Report for Wednesday, 3-27-2019

Local Notes: 

CHS Red Devils:

  • Softball: Woodruff 5 – Clinton 0… The Red Devil softball team traveled to Woodruff last night to take on the Wolverines in region action… If I told you that Clinton managed just 1 hit in the game you might guess that the Red Devils lost and you would be correct as Woodruff took a 5-0 win… Maddi Wood had the Red Devils only hit… For the games box score click on the following: 3-26-19-CSb-Woodruff

 

  • Baseball: Woodruff 5 – Clinton 1… While the softball team was at Woodruff, the baseball team was hosting the Wolverines… I hate to have to tell you that the news is no better for Red Devil fans as Woodruff took a 5-0 win… Coach Fortman said the team had chances but just couldn’t get it done… Officially I don’t have any other details at this time but unofficially I believe the Wolverines outhit the Red Devils 8-4 and that Griffin Fuller led the Red Devils getting 2 hits.

 

LDHS: Raiders:

  • Softball: Laurens 6 – Easley 4… The Raider softball team traveled to Easley last night to take on the Green Wave and the ride back home was a pleasant one as the Raiders took a 6-4 win scoring the winning runs in the 7th inning… The Raiders jumped on the board first scoring 2 runs in the 1st inning when Kauree Munyan doubled driving in Octavia Johnson and Rachel Delio later doubled driving in Munyan… Easley responded with a run of their own in the bottom of the inning… The Raiders added a run in the 3rd inning and Easley tied the game 3-3 with a pair of runs in the 4th inning… The game remained that way until the top of the 7th inning when the Raiders scored 3 runs… In the inning, Vanessa Harshaw., Kauree Munyan and Octavia Johnson had key hits… The Green Wave did pick up a run in the bottom of the inning to make the final 6-4… The Raiders pounded out 10 hits with Octavia Johnson going 3 for 4 to lead the Raiders at the plate… Rachel Delio picked up the complete game win giving up the 4 unearned runs on 4 hits while striking out 6 and walking 3… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: 3-26-19-3-LSB-Easley… For the games scorecard, click on the following: 3-26-19-3-LSB-Easley-SC… The team travels to TL Hanna tonight for another region contest.

 

  • Baseball: Laurens 7 – Woodmont 4…. The Raider baseball team was at home last night hosting the Wildcats of Woodmont HS… Again there is good news for Raider fans as the Raiders took a 7-4 win over the Wildcats… The Raiders got on the scoreboard first in the bottom of the 1st inning on an RBI single by Zac Rice driving in Jalen Bragg… The Wildcats tied the game in the top of the 2nd scoring a single run… The Raiders added a second run in the 3rd inning on a RBI single by Kobe Williams driving in Tanner Smith… The Raiders added 4 more runs in the 4th inning as they batted around with Williams, Tanner Smith and Heath Bragg getting key hits in the inning… The Raiders last run came in the 6th when Tanner Smith scored thanks to a Woodmont error… The Wildcats did not go quietly in the 7th inning as they scored 3 runs to make the final 7-4… The Raiders scored their runs on only 7 hits with Tanner Smith, Heath Bragg and Kobe Williams getting 2 hits each…Heath Bragg picked up the win pitching until the pitch-count rule caused him to have to leave the mound… For the game’s box score and some stats, click on the following: 3-20-26-LBB-Woodmont… For the games scorecard, click on the following: 3-20-26-LBB-Woodmont-SC… The team travels to Wade Hampton tonight to make up a game that was rained out earlier this month.
