2 mins read

Beaufort High picked the right time to get its bats ringing again.

After totaling only one run in consecutive losses and needing a late comeback to beat May River last week, the Eagles clinched the Region 7-4A title with a 9-5 home win over Colleton County on Monday.

The Eagles jumped out to an early lead with a four-run second inning and added to the lead in each of the next three frames. 

Jeffrey Smyth was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, Brendan Bowersox was 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI, and Jacob Anderson was 2-for-3 with a double to lead Beaufort’s offense.

Ethan Graham allowed three runs and five hits over five innings with five strikeouts and five walks to earn the win. 

Beaufort couldn’t get the offense going in a 10-0 loss to Point Pleasant (W.Va.) on Wednesday in the Spring Break Invitational at Hilton Head High. Smyth, Paul Winland, and Rhogue Wallace each had a single for the Eagles, and Wes Graves took the loss, allowing four runs and 10 hits over five innings with five strikeouts. 

The Eagles manufactured two runs in the sixth inning to break open a tied game and claim a 4-2 win over visiting May River on Thursday. Smyth and Wallace both scored on a double steal combined with a wild pitch with two outs in the sixth to break a 2-2 tie. 

The rally made a winner of James Davenport, who pitched two scoreless innings in relief of Oliver Holmes, who allowed two runs and five hits over five frames. Smyth had an RBI double and Christian Londono had an RBI triple for the Eagles. 

Beaufort (17-3, 6-1) was to travel to West Ashley for a non-region game at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday before going to Colleton County for the second game of the series at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Follow daily local sports updates at LowcoSports.com.
