HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Red Foxes escaped some late-inning heroics by the Camden Bulldogs Wednesday night winning 6-4 in non-conference action at Jimmy White Park.

Hartsville’s Owen Taylor had a shutout working through four innings when the Bulldog bats came to life as they plated four runs on five hits while batting through their lineup.

Hartsville scores single tallies in each of the first three innings and plated two runs in the fourth to maintain its 5-4 lead.

Red Foxes’ reliever Harrison Moore entered the game with one out in the fourth to shut the door for that inning getting two infield outs by his defense.

Camden was not done offensively as they opened the seventh with back-to-back walks and scored a run but a strike out by Moore and a liner to A’Shani McFarland at the hot corner, third base, ended the two-hour and 20-minute contest.

“Glad to get a win, of course,” said Hartsville coach Tony Gainey. “We had kind of a long road trip last night. I was curious to see what we were going to get.”

Hartsville started off the game well, both offensively and defensively.

“We came out pretty good. The intensity was there but we kinda took our foot off the gas,” Gainey said. “You don’t do that against Camden, they are a really good ball team.”

Taylor faced just 16 batters in the first four innings, garnering eight strikeouts for his efforts. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the third inning.

Offensively for Hartsville, Dariyan Pendergrass went 2-for-2 with three runs scored and three stolen bases. He was followed by Taylor, who also went 2-for-2with an RBI, a stolen base and a SAC. Rylan Howle went 2-for-2 with an RBI and two stolen bases.

Moore picked up the win for Hartsville by virtue of the tying and winning runs on base in the seventh innings. He went 2.2 innings of work giving up one run on one hit and striking out one.

Hartsville will travel to Wilson Friday for a Region 6 contest.
