Baseball’s first trip to the playoffs in six years didn’t start how the Redhawks would have liked, as a late inning rally fell short 8-7, leaving the team trailing 1-0 in a best-of-three series against Rock Hill High School.

”We responded after getting down 7-1 by scoring six and tying the game,” head coach Scott McGarrh said. “We also ran the bases very well.”

Now the Redhawks are faced with having to win two straight games to advance to the second round, with game two at Rock Hill Friday at 7:30 p.m., and a game three, if necessary, Saturday at 1 p.m. at Reedy High School.

”Playing them in a series allows us to play tonight,” McGarrh said. “Had it been a one gamer, it would’ve been over. We challenged our players to get the series to Saturday and let’s see what happens.”
