Hilton Head stayed on the winning path Sunday with a 14-2 victory over Virginia at the Dixie Boys World Series in Bossier City, La.
Hilton Head jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the opening inning, with the key blow coming on Cameron Bent's grand slam home run.
Bent finished 2 for 4 with a walk and three runs scored as Hilton Head won its second in a row.
"As you advance in the tournament, the teams get better," Hilton Head manager Bill Keen said, "and to jump out 8-0 kind of dampened (Virginia's) spirits."
