SHALLOTTE -- Southern Wayne's Logan Porter delivered the game-clinching hit, scoring Brady Wiggins in the bottom of the sixth in the Saints' 11-1 win over Wallace-Rose Hill Wednesday in their third and final game at the Beach Diamond Invitational at West Brunswick High School.

The game was called due to the 10-run rule after Wiggins crossed the plate. Southern Wayne (5-4) exited the tournament with a 2-1 record.

"We did a lot of good things. I think the boys played hard," Southern Wayne coach Trae McKee said. "We got a lot of things answered that we wanted to answer out of conference."

Wednesday, Saint right-hander Matthew Holloman went the full, six innings -- yielding no earned runs and just three hits with three strikeouts and three walks.

Porter led a balanced offensive display with three hits and two RBI, while Austin Hood provided two hits, including a double. David Combs notched two hits as teammate Garrett Barfield smacked a two-run double and walked three times. Josh Narron contributed a double and and RBI.
