HS Baseball: Sharks Slip Up Late, Still Clinch Region Crown

Wade Hampton rallied for four runs in the seventh to force extra innings, then added three more in the eighth to claim an 8-7 win at May River on Friday. 

The Sharks led 5-1 after six innings, but a one-out error in the top of the seventh loaded the bases ahead of Casyn Dobson’s game-tying grand slam. Dobson added an RBI single in the three-run eighth, and May River left the tying run at third with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth.

Despite the loss, May River clinched the Region 8-3A title. 

John Pesaturo was 2-for-4 with three runs and an RBI to lead the Sharks at the plate. 

The Sharks (11-7, 7-1) play in the Mingo Bay Tournament at Carolina Forest High School next week before opening the Class 3A playoffs.
