Post 109 seniors swing back in action

It had been more than two weeks since the Post 109 seniors last played.

Post 109 hopes to make a triumphant return when it hosts Inman today and Spartanburg on Tuesday.

Post 109 manager Terry Wright said he tried to keep his players sharp with an intra-squad scrimmage on Tuesday and practices over the weekend.

Chesnee ace Nate Lamb will get the start tonight. Wright said Lamb has thrown the ball well in practice.

Damian Eubanks also will likely get some work. Wright said he will have a pitch count to protect the pitchers’ health.

Houston Wright and Jack Masters also are expected to get some innings this week.

Masters is coming off an injury but has looked strong in practice, the manager said.

Post 109 is expected to score some runs with an offense led by Gaffney High star Ashby Smith, who has been a big addition, Wright said.

Chesnee products Colin Turner and Dawson Williamson and Brandon McKinney of Broome also have been impressive in practice, according to Wright.

Wright describes Williamson as a left-handed hitter who can run.

Post 109 is 3-0 after a season-opening win over Union and a doubleheader forfeit over Post 22.

Post 109 finishes the week at Spartanburg on Thursday.

Wright said he would like to go undefeated this week to put some distance between Post 109 and rivals Spartanburg and Inman.
