HS BSB: Sharks cruise past Cougars to keep playoff hopes high

May River baseball ran its winning streak to seven games and bolstered its postseason resume with an 11-1 win at Colleton County on Monday. 

Leadoff man James Layman went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and an RBI and scored three times to lead a 12-hit attack for the Sharks. Zack Morillo added two hits and scored twice, and Riley Stokes and Bennett Roemer each had two hits and an RBI and combined on a three-hitter on the mound.

Stokes struck out eight over five strong innings, allowing one run, two hits, and two walks, and Roemer struck out two and allowed one hit in a scoreless sixth. 

Ben Kennedy was 2-for-3 with a solo homer for Colleton. 

May River (11-6, 6-3) needs a home win over Colleton County (4-14, 1-8) and a Beaufort High loss at Bluffton on Wednesday to force a tie for second place in Region 7-4A, but the Sharks are also in position to earn an at-large berth in the Class 4A playoffs.
