WHITEVILLE – Nyquan Richardson’s run-scoring double keyed a 2-run ninth inning that carried Clarkton School of Discovery to a 6-4 Waccamaw Middle School Conference baseball victory over Williams Township Thursday.

Ja’Nathan Johnson led off the ninth with a single to centerfield. Johnson stole second base and dashed home with the go-ahead run when Richardson blasted a double to centerfield. A pair of Aggie errors allowed Richardson to score an insurance run.

Williams tied the score in the fourth inning on a walk, a hit batter and an error. A walk a wild pitch and a fielder’s choice helped the Aggies take a 2-1 lead in the fifth.

Garrett Dunham ripped a single to leftfield, and Lee Barnes smacked a single to centerfield in the Blue Devil sixth inning. Parker Greene knocked in Dunham and Barnes with a single to left that vaulted Clarkton in front 3-2.

J’von Junious smacked a single to centerfield in the Blue Devil seventh, and Maison Brooks hammered a triple to rightfield that scored Junious and padded the CSD lead to 4-2.

Three consecutive hit batsman, a single and a walk in the Williams seventh inning produced two runs and tied the score 4-4.
