Camden moved into a second-place tie with Chapin in Region 4-3A baseball with a 5-1 win over the Eagles on Friday at Legion Field.

The Bulldogs (13-8 overall, 8-3 in region) can clinch the loop’s No. 2 seed in the upcoming state playoffs with a road win Monday at Lower Richland against the last-place Diamond Hornets.

If successful, Camden will host a District I first-round game on Friday.

Camden built a 2-1 lead against Chapin through the first four innings, courtesy of RBI hits by Ross Hough and Bennett Harrelson in the first and fourth innings, respectively. The Bulldogs put it away with three runs in the fifth. Consecutive hits by Lawson Stokes, Nick Tucker and Hough made it 3-1. Carson Morgan’s two-out double down the left field line closed out the scoring.

Senior left-hander Grey Hoke was in command on the hill, scattering seven Chapin hits in a complete-game performance that featured seven strikeouts.
