Baseball: Abbeville 1 – Clinton 0 (11)… Now if you are one of those baseball fans who likes to see a low scoring game where the pitchers battle it out and it goes to extra innings, then you should have been at Abbeville last night because the Red Devils and the panthers were in just such a game that wound up 1-0 in 11 innings… The only problem if you are one of those folks is that Abbeville took the 1-0 win over Clinton… Abbeville used an error, a sacrifice bunt and a single to plate the winning run with 2 outs in the bottom of the 11th… The Red Devils managed just 4 hits and Aaron Copland had 2 of them… For the game’s box score and stats click on the following: 17-3-23-B-CHS-Abbeville… For the game’s scorecard click on the following: 17-3-23-B-CHS-Abbeville-scorebook… The team is scheduled to travel to Newberry this evening.
