Ospreys remain unbeaten in League 1

The American Legion Post 9 Beaufort Ospreys stayed undefeated in league play with a 4-3 comeback win over visiting Hampton on Monday, June 11. 

Hampton took a 2-0 lead with a two-run homer in the second and added a run in the third before the Ospreys got the bats going. 

Drew Luckey’s two-run homer in the fourth cut into the deficit, and Ethan Graham doubled home Griffin Yeager in the fifth to tie it and scored the go-ahead run on Matt Cieplowski’s RBI groundout later in the inning.

Michael Smyth earned the win in relief, pitching 5 1/3 innings and allowing one unearned run and seven hits with five strikeouts. 

On Thursday, June 7, the Ospreys won 8-4 at Walterboro. Yeager had a homer and two RBIs, and Tyler Hofmann drove in two runs. Smyth also earned the win in relief in that one, allowing one run over two innings with three strikeouts.
