Season over for Ospreys after West Ashley takes two

    The Beaufort Ospreys dropped both games of their doubleheader with West Ashley on Saturday, 9-6 and 13-3, to close out the regular season.

After trying to claw their way into the American Legion playoffs, the Ospreys (5-11) finished tied with Summerville for the final playoff spot in League 1. However, Ospreys coach Bryan Thompson said his team would not have enough players for a play-in game today, allowing Summerville to take the last postseason position.

Kyle Dawson was 3 for 4 with a pair of RBIs and David Tilton hit a pair of doubles and had two RBIs for Beaufort in Saturday's first game. Joel Fickes suffered the loss.

Mitchell Stewart was 2 for 4 with three stolen bases in the second game. Luke Smith took the loss.

Summerville will play at Sumter on Tuesday in the first game of the best-of-five series.
