MOWERYTOWN — It was a team title.

The Rock Hill Redmen used some clutch team play to win the Whiteoak Wooden Bat Classic Saturday.

“This was our best team effort all year. We had three sacrifice bunts. Josh Guy had two sacrifice bunts and T.J. Blagg one that really helped,” Redmen coach Barry Litteral said.
