Friday's roundup: Crest evens 3A baseball regional series

Boiling Springs Crest took advantage of five errors and other miscues by Asheville Reynolds and beat the Rockets 10-3 in the second game of the 3A Western Regional baseball championship series Friday.

That sets up a decisive Game 3 at 6 p.m. Saturday at Crest, with the winner facing either Wilmington New Hanover or Fayetteville Terry Sanford in next weekend’s 3A state title series.

C.J. Mayhue played a big role for visiting Crest, driving in two runs and scoring a pair. His third-inning RBI single produced one of two Chargers runs in that frame.

In the fifth, Mayhue singled, stole second, went to third on an error, and scored on a wild pitch. An inning later, Mayhue drove in a run with a single, then eventually scored on a Reynolds balk.

Meanwhile, Crest starter Caleb Plummer went 6.1 innings and earned the victory.

1A softball: South Stanly evens series

South Stanly rode the no-hit pitching of Sadie Lee to a series-evening 2-0 victory Friday over visiting Alleghany in the 1A Western Regional girls’ softball title series.

The Bulls scored their first run in the fourth inning, on a Kaitlyn Tucker RBI double. An inning later, Makayla Poplin’s single scored a run.

South Stanly (24-6) and Alleghany (20-5) will decide the series in a 6 p.m. game Saturday at Alleghany High in Sparta.
