Hilton Head Prep jumped out to a big early lead to help a taxed pitching staff hold on for an 11-8 win at Battery Creek on Thursday.
HHP scored six runs in the second inning to break it open and held off Battery Creek’s rally. Torin Hrobar allowed four runs (one earned) and four hits over five innings to earn the win.
“Three games in four days had our pitching staff on fumes, but the youngsters stepped up and got the job done for us,” HHP coach Chris Wells said. “We didn’t play great, but we put it together and found a way to win the ballgame.”
Gage Hurlbut was 2-for-5 with a run and three RBIs, Jaiden Hrobar was 2-for-4 with a double, two runs, and two RBIs, Triston Bonomo was 2-for-3 with a run and two RBIs, and Tommy Stauffer was 2-for-3 with an RBI and three runs to lead HHP at the plate.
Austin Marong was 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs, and Austin Stephens was 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs for Battery Creek.
HHP (11-3) travels to John Paul II for a key region matchup at 6 p.m. Monday.
