The Sumter Flyers scored five runs in the top of the eighth inning without the benefit of a hit to beat Florence Green 8-3 on Thursday at Riley Park.

Sumter remained undefeated in the junior division of the South Carolina American League at 7-0.

The Flyers, who were the designated visiting team, scored twice in the sixth to tie the score and send the game into extra innings. After a scoreless seventh, Sumter scored five runs in the eighth thanks to three Florence Green errors, three walks and three hit batters.

Sumter managed just three hits. Clark Kinney had a double, two walks and a run batted in, while Bryce Coulter had a hit and two RBI.

Kyler Odom pitched two perfect innings of relief to get the victory. He didn't allow a hit or a walk and struck out five batters. Kinney pitched a 1-2-3 eighth with two strikeouts.
