HSBSB: Daley deals again, Eagles bounce back from 3-game skid

PJ Daley tossed a gem and six Eagles had multiple hits as Beaufort High baseball opened Region 7-4A play with a 12-0 win over visiting Lucy Beckham on Monday after dropping its final three games in the PBR Showdown over the weekend at Shipyard Park.  

Daley struck out seven and walked two over four innings of one-hit ball to earn his second win in two starts, and Mason Connelly struck out two to work around three walks in the fifth to finish the abbreviated shutout. 

Connelly led the 15-hit attack, going 3-for-3 with a double, a walk, and two runs, and Hunter Rast, Carter Bowersox, Tommy Winburn, Chase McKelvey, and Zach Talbert each added a pair of hits as the Eagles swung it well throughout the lineup. Rast, Bowersox, Winburn, and Talbert each drove in two runs, and McKelvey doubled and scored twice.

After opening the PBR Showdown with a 2-0 win over Stratford, but they dropped their next three games in the tournament, getting shut out by Wando (5-0) and Ashley Ridge (11-0) before giving up three runs in the seventh to lose 7-4 to Northwestern on Sunday.

Rast and Mullen had great weekends at the plate, as Rast was 6-for-14 with a triple and two RBIs, and Mullen was 4-for-10 with a triple and an RBI. Brutcher and Connelly added three hits each. Tommy Winburn gave the Eagles four strong innings of relief against Wando, and Malcom Webb and Talbert combined to keep Beaufort in the game with Northwestern until a one-out error opened the door for the Trojans to score three runs in the seventh.

Beaufort (2-3, 1-0) travels to Lucy Beckham to conclude the series Wednesday.
