S.C. AMERICAN BASEBALL SUMMER LEAGUE - Chapin/Newberry wins season-opener at Segra Park

West Columbia splits doubleheader with Columbia International

Pitching earned Chapin righthander Cade Austin an offer he accepted with the University of South Carolina.
Thursday night at Segra Park, the future Gamecock displayed a productive bat in leading Chapin/Newberry to a season-opening 10-3 victory over Lexington.
Austin had 3 hits which led to 4 RBI. His 1st at bat was a 2-run double to put Chapin-Newberry on the board.
Lawson Brand followed with a RBI sacrifice fly and J.P. Hornick belted an RBI double to make it 4-0.
Austin pitched 2 innings, giving up an RBI double play to future South Carolina teammate David Cromer. 
Chapin/Newberry extended its lead to 7-1 in the 4th. Andrew Finch and Chris Hood scored on a throwing error following Bryce Medlock's single and he scored on Austin's single.
An RBI fielder's choice by Jacob Lebron brought Lexington to within 7-2. In the 5th, Stanton Hester singled home 2 runners and Austin followed an inning later with a solo home run over the leftfield run to make it 10-2.
Lebron collected his 2nd RBI in the Bottom of the 6th. The game was called following the top 7th as lights were reportedly made unavailable for use.
Blair Jones was 1 of 4 relievers who pitched 1 inning for Chapin/Newberry and picked up with win. 
Chapin/Newberry (1-0) returns to action Tuesday against West Columbia at Midlands Baseball Complex. Lexington (1-1) travels to Thomas Sumter Academy to face Dalzell.

Game 2 saw Columbia International score 6 runs in the Top 1st and take a 9-0 lead through the 1st 3 innings. 
West Columbia rallied with 7 runs in the 4th and 5th innings before losing 12-7.
