HS BSB: Trojans top Bobcats, inch closer to region crown

Bluffton baseball gave up six runs in the second inning and couldn’t recover against a strong James Island pitching staff, falling 10-3 to the visiting Trojans on Monday. 

The region-leading Trojans scored a run in the first and broke it open with a six-run second aided by a one-out error. James Island tacked on two in the third to make it 9-0, and the Bobcats could only manage single tallies in the fourth, sixth, and seventh as they tried to claw back into it.
