Wylie Coker led the P-15's offense with a double and three runs batted in. Sumter finished with six hits. SB DuCom had a hit and two RBI, while Tray Yates and Jacob Holladay both had a hit and scored a run.
Connor Batey picked up the victory, pitching two scoreless innings of relief. John Kolb came on in relief in the sixth to kill the Camden rally and pick up the save. He tossed two scoreless innings.
In the second game, Camden broke a 3-3 tie with a single run in the fifth and two more in the sixth for the 6-4 win.
Sumter took a 1-0 lead in the second before Camden scored three runs in the third. The P-15's tied it with two runs in the fourth.
