Carolina Forest 6, (at) North Myrtle Beach 5 (F/9): A 3-run rally by North Myrtle Beach knotted things at 5-all in the sixth, eventually forcing matters into extra innings. A wild pitch by the Chiefs pitcher Chase Hughes in the top half of the ninth would decide things, however, with the Panthers’ Max Ryerson scoring the winning run.

Chase Hughes finished 1-for-4 for the Panthers, bringing in a pair of runs of his own.
