It wasn't just the weather that was hot on Saturday in Allendale, SC; the Hurricane bats were as well. Louisburg (24-21) picked up the Saturday sweep against Region X opponent USC Salkehatchie (21-33).

In game one, Louisburg pounded out 11 hits and set the tone for the series winning 5-1 over the Indians. CJ White led the offensive barrage, hitting 3-for-4 with 1 run scored, 1 RBI, and a homerun. Vinny Bailey, Trey Hicks, and Christian Lowry also recorded multi-hit games. The Canes' offense was relentless on Salkehatchie, scoring in 5 of the 7 innings. 

Jason Parker worked his magic on the mound for 7 solid innings, allowing only 3 hits, one walk, and striking out seven. 

In game two, Trey Hicks, Zaccheaus Rasberry, and Blake Stewart led the Hurricane hitters to the 8-4 victory. Hicks was 2-for-4 with 1 run scored, 4 RBI, and a homerun. Rasperry was 2-for-4 as well with 2 runs scored, 2 RBI, a double, and a homerun. And not to be outdone, Stewart also hit 2-for-4, hitting a triple and picking up 2 RBI. 

The Canes trailed for the last half of the game, but the 5-run 7th inning that gave them the lead and the win was highlighted by two two-run homeruns off the bats of Hicks and Rasberry.

Zack Devon earned the win with 2.33 innings pitched, giving up only one hit. 

Louisburg will return tomorrow for the final two games of the series.
