Legion Baseball: Ospreys Rally To 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.

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, 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.

The Ospreys (5-2, 3-0 League 1) host Charleston for another league contest at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Beaufort High School.
