BishopvilleRobert E. Lee (24-3) defeated visiting Colleton Prep 15-0 via the three-inning mercy rule in game one of the SCISA AA baseball title series Monday night in Bishopville.

Starting Cavalier pitcher Austin Windham was masterful on the hill as he struck out seven of the 9 batters he faced in tossing a no-hit perfect game for three innings.

Robert E. Lee sent 18 batters to the plate in the first inning and Keaton Price had a grand slam to put REL up 5-0 and later in the inning he collected his 5th RBI of the same inning that made the score 11-0.

The Cavaliers collected 12 hits in their three innings of work. Hunter McGee’s home run in the second inning gave the Cavaliers a 14-0 lead. Counting his youth league games growing up the home run was his 100th career round tripper.

“With a huge lead in the third inning you might wonder why we were stealing trying to get the 15th run to end the game and it is because in baseball you never know what might happen in game two and we wanted to end the game so we would have Austin available to pitch some on Thursday if we go to a third game,” said Robert E. Lee coach David Rankin. “I can honesty say that I was surprised we were able to put up 12 runs in the first inning. We hit the ball well today for sure.”

Robert E; Lee will throw their second number one pitcher tomorrow in Dustin Kennedy. Windham is now 8-0 on the season. “We consider Austin and Dustin both our number one pitcher,” said Coach Rankin. “There is very little difference between them and both are quality high school pitchers.”

Robert E. Lee players with at least one hit included Jet Smith, Josh Burns, Price, McGee, Kennedy, and Jenkins McCullum.

Colleton Prep head coach Cody Mincey said he would start junior pitcher Jordan Crosby Tuesday in Walterboro.

“We are certainly a better team then we showed today, and I expect us to play much better at home,” said Coach Mincey. “We started two jayvee players today and we lost an appeal to have one of our players reinstated who got incorrectly tossed out of the Williamsburg Academy game last week. I will have more to say on this mater later.”
