St. James sent Class 3A No. 1 Brookland-Cayce into the loser’s bracket of the International Paper Classic baseball tournament with a 6-4 win over the Bearcats on Friday night.
B-C opened the tournament with a win on Friday morning.
St. James worked over three Bearcats pitchers for nine hits. The Sharks put it away with two-run burst in the bottom of the sixth inning – a move that began two outs and nobody on base.
Zach Sightler got the start, but John Long took the loss in relief.
Never miss a local story.
Tanner Petrey, Zack Warner and Zac McLaurin had RBI hits for B-C.
