Lexington keeps pace with Camden in League III race
Lexington Post 7 defeated West Columbia 6-1 at the Lexington Sports Complex Wednesday.
Aaron White had two RBI and Brett McEwen drew three walks for Lexington (8-9, 5-3), which jumped out to a 5-0 lead after three innings.
Braydon Fowler allowed three hits in five-and-two-thirds innings, and Nate Roof struck out three in relief for Post 7.
The victory kept Lexington to within a game of League III leader Camden Post 17. Camden also defeated Aiken 6-3 as it broke a 3-3 tie with three runs in the bottom sixth.
Heath Stokes put Camden (12-3, 6-2) ahead with a two-run single and Brandon Salmond added an RBI triple during the rally. Justin Dorton retired the final three batters for the complete-game win.
The losses left Aiken and West Columbia tied for third place and the final playoff spot. West Columbia (4-7, 3-6) plays host to Camden Friday at Brookland-Cayce High School, while Lexington travels to Aiken (5-11, 3-6).
