Rams End Patriots' Season in First Round

SEC Tournament - First Round: Purnell Swett 1, Pinecrest 0

– The Purnell Swett baseball team only managed one run against Pinecrest during Tuesday’s opening round of the Southeastern Conference tournament, but the run was all the Rams needed in a 1-0 win.

Ethan Chavis threw a two-hit shutout to set up a semifinal game today at rival Lumberton at 7 p.m.

The game was scoreless through four innings, which the Rams broke when Braylan Locklear scored Lucas Oxendine in the top of the fifth. Purnell Swett was limited to five hits, including two from Oxendine. READ MORE.

Patriots Fall to Raiders in Extra Innings

Richmond County 8, Pinecrest 5 (9 innings)

– Richmond Senior coach Ricky Young preaches to his players to never look ahead on the schedule and focus on the current game.

Young could amend his philosophy from each contest to each inning.

That is what his team did in its clash with Pinecrest Tuesday evening to keep its faint hopes of winning the Southeastern Conference regular-season championship alive.

Trailing by four runs heading into the top of the sixth, the Raiders found a way to force the game into extra innings before pulling out an 8-5 win in nine. Corey Dove earned the win in relief and Joe Butler secured the save. READ MORE.

Pats Put Brakes on Losing Skid, Edge Rams 1-0

Pinecrest 1, Purnell Swett 0

– The Purnell Swett High School baseball team allowed just one run on Friday during a 1-0 loss at Pinecrest, but it cost the Rams more than just the game.

With their fourth loss in a row, the Rams (12-6, 3-5) were mathematically eliminated from the Southeastern Conference playoffs. They had been among four teams tied for first place at the conference midpoint three weeks ago but have dropped in the standings since losing to Scotland, Richmond and Pinecrest within an eight-day span.

Purnell Swett coach Bryan McDonald, who missed the last two games after being ejected against Scotland, called Friday’s loss a “dagger.”

“This week’s hurt,” McDonald said. “We’ve got to run the table to have any chance at a wild card (playoff berth) or win the conference tournament.” READ MORE.

Big Inning Dooms Pinecrest in Loss to Scots

Scotland County 11, Pinecrest 2

– Three teams entered Tuesday night’s action tied for first in the Southeastern Conference standings. Three victories later, and Scotland, Lumberton and Richmond all remained at the top of the heap.

The Scots (8-5, 5-2) did their part, avenging an early-season road loss to Pinecrest (8-8, 3-4) to pound the Patriots 11-2 at home. The win was Scotland’s third in a row while the defeat was Pinecrest’s fifth straight and seventh in their last eight games, a far cry from when they started the season 7-1. That hot start included a 6-0 victory against the Scots on March 24.

After two scoreless innings from both teams, Scotland blew the game open in the bottom of the third with seven straight runs, a spurt that was initiated by Cody Stewart. The senior ripped an RBI-double off Pinecrest pitcher Joe Lewis, then Sam Gray followed with an RBI-single to plate Stewart. READ MORE.
