After dropping two games to Region 7-4A leader James Island last week, Beaufort High baseball bounced back in a big way Monday, as first-year coach Zach Jacobs’ team went on the road and routed rival May River 12-3 to open a key region series.
The Eagles rapped 12 hits, including three for extra bases, and took advantage of three May River errors, as Tommy Winburn was 3-for-3 with a triple and four RBIs, and Hunter Rast went 3-for-3 and drove in a run to lead the way for Beaufort.
Beaufort broke it open with a four-run third inning and tacked on in each of the next three innings to open it up. Davis Woods took care of the rest and stymied the Sharks in a complete game, allowing two earned runs and seven hits with three strikeouts and no walks.
The Eagles (4-8, 3-2) were slated to host the Sharks to conclude the series Wednesday before playing a non-region game at home against Hanahan on Thursday and traveling to Fort Dorchester on Friday.
