After some rainouts, the two Summerville American Legion Baseball Junior teams went head-to-head Tuesday.
Summerville Green, the older of the two teams, handed Summerville Gold a 14-6 loss. Summerville Green only had one more hit than its opponent, but committed fewer errors and walked fewer batters.
Chad Mathis picked up the pitching win after throwing two innings and allowing only two hits and only one walk. He also had a triple that led to a Green run.
Hundley McCurry drove in four runs for Summerville Green and Andrew Kenny drove in two. Trevious Tucker and Kyle Smith both scored two runs, had an RBI and reached base three times.
Summerville Gold leadoff hitter Ben Turner was 2 for 3 at the plate with two runs scored. Johnny Watts was 2 for 2 with an RBI and a run scored. Trent Brewster drove in three runs for the Gold team.
Summerville Green got off to a fast start, scoring four runs in the top of the first inning. Smith singled to plate Tucker and open the scoring. McCurry singled to drive in Steven Dibble and Smith and then Andrew Kenny drove in courtesy runner Reilly Hagan.
Summerville Gold cut the lead in half in the bottom of the frame. Brendon Case drove in leadoff hitter Ben Turner with a sacrifice fly and Olin McCurry plated Bennett Reeves.
But Summerville Green added a pair of runs the next inning and scored seven in the third to take a 13-2 lead.
Kenny and Tucker had an RBI single in the third and McCurry plated two runs when he reached on an error.
Summerville Gold scored three runs in the bottom of the frame off an error, a double by Watts and a bases-loaded walk. The scoring slowed considerably after that inning and the game was called in the top of the fifth due to a lighting storm.
Summerville Green hosts Moncks Corner June 14 and Goose Creek June 17. Summerville Gold hosts Goose Creek June 18 and Berkeley June 19.
