MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. Logan fell behind 4-0 after one inning and never recovered falling to Georgetown, South Carolina 4-3 in the Mingo Bay Classic at Georgetown High School.


The Bulldogs got a two-run double from Blake Wall and RBIs from Stuart Bellune and Connor Dupius in the first inning to build a 4-0 lead off Logan starter Jared Burnette.


Burnette allowed four first inning runs on four hits but settled down to keep the Bulldogs off the scoreboard over the next five innings. Burnette allowed four runs on nine hits and struck out four in six innings of work and helped his cause at the plate with a hit and an RBI.


Trailing 4-0, Logan rallied for two runs in the sixth as Korbin Bostic drove in Dawson Maynard with a sacrifice fly and Burnette singled to score Garrett Williamson to cut the deficit to 4-2 after six innings.


The Wildcats added a run in the seventh on a Jake Ramey sacrifice fly to trim the Bulldogs lead to 4-3, but it would be as close as Logan would get.


John Henry Sasser earned the win for Georgetown. Sasser allowed two runs on six hits, striking out four and walking one in five innings. Drew Holcombe pitched one inning of relief allowing one run on two hits. Preston Ard earned the save allowing one walk in one inning of work.
