Sumter 14

Lamar 1

LAMAR - The Sumter Flyers remained undefeated on the season with a 14-1, 5-inning win over Lamar on Monday at the Lamar field.

Sumter improved to 6-0 overall and 4-0 in league play in the junior division of the South Carolina American League.

The Flyers finished with 11 hits, with 11 different players recording a hit. Jess Schwedler had a home run and two runs batted in. Xavier Brown had a triple and a run scored, and Clayton Goff had a double, a run and an RBI. Clarke Kinney scored two runs.

Riley Ward started and pitched three innings to get the win, allowing an unearned run.

Florence sweeps Dalzell

FLORENCE - The Dalzell-Shaw Jets were swept by Florence Post 1 in a doubleheader on Friday at American Legion Field.

Florence won the opening game, which was the Lower State League opener in the South Carolina American League for the Jets, 11-7. The second contest, which was not a league game, was won by Post 1 15-5 in six innings.

Dalzell fell to 1-4 on the season, while Florence improved to 8-0.

The opener was a back-and-forth affair from the get-go. The score was 2-2 after one inning, 4-4 after two and it was 6-6 in the fourth inning when Post 1 finally broke through for good.

George Derrick Floyd's solo homer tied the game at 6-6, and Florence took advantage of three hit batsmen and three walks as it batted around for a 9-6 lead.

Carson Collins reached base four times and scored four times to lead the Dalzell offense. He also singled and doubled. Jenkins McCullum had two hits and an RBI for D-S as did Hunter McGee. Britton Morris had the big game with an RBI single in the first and a 2-run homer in the fourth that gave the Jets a 6-5 lead at the time.

The second contest saw Post 1 jump to a 4-1 lead after three innings before D-S scored four runs in the top of the fourth to take a 5-4 lead.

It was short-lived, however, as Florence scored 11 runs over the next three innings to pull away for the victory.

McGee had a pair of hits and drove in three runs for the Jets. Gabriel Harris added a 2-run double.
