Cards Rebound

South Laurel recovers from nine-run loss

CORBIN —  

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The South Laurel Cardinals split a pair of games so far in the Hanahan Invitational during spring break.

The Cardinals (7-2) dropped a 14-5 decision to Summerville, S.C. before righting the ship to defeat Marist, Ill., 9-6.

“We’re happy with the way things are going,” South Laurel assistant coach Kyle Mink said. “We got a lead in the first game, but didn’t make some plays and that led to the loss, but we played a whole lot better in the second game.

“We came out with a lot more intensity and played good,” he added. “We put some pressure on the other team’s defense and hit the ball well.”

First Game

Summerville, S.C., 14,

South Laurel 5

The Cardinals jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning and led 4-1 after the second inning before Summerville answered with 13 runs during the final five innings of play.

South Laurel trailed 14-4 going into the bottom of the seventh inning and managed to score only one run before losing by nine.

Trent Abner went perfect at the plate with a 2-for-2 effort while drawing two walks and scoring twice. Alex Sears went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs and Daniel Neal was 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Second game

South Laurel 9, Marist, Ill. 6

The Cardinals took advantage of a three-run second inning and a three-run third inning to pull off the three-run victory.

South Laurel led 7-3 after three innings and 9-5 after five before seeing Marist score one run in the top of the seventh inning.

Both Austin Moore and Brennan Miller each connected with home runs in the win while also delivering two hits apiece.

Abner went 2-for-4 with an RBI while Joe Gaines went 2-for-4 with two RBIs. Austin Vigeant picked up the win on the mound for South Laurel.
