Eagles show HR clout vs. Cougars
Beaufort High baseball used a pair of home runs and a six-run third inning to break open a tied game and rolled to an 11-1 win over visiting Colleton County on Monday.
The game was tied at 1 before the Eagles erupted in the third, stringing together four hits sandwiched around an error to plate three runs before Matt Bornsheuer launched a three-run homer to make it 7-1. Beaufort tacked on three more in the fourth and ended it early on Rhogue Wallace’s solo blast in the sixth.
Wallace had a monster game, going 2-for-2 with a homer, two walks, and four runs, while Rush Riley tripled and drove in three, and William Winburn was 1-for-3 with two RBIs.
Ollie Holmes went the distance on the mound for Beaufort, striking out eight and allowing just one unearned run on seven hits with one walk.
Beaufort (7-7, 5-2) was set to travel to Colleton County (4-12, 1-6) to complete the series Wednesday.
