In a back and forth contest, Minden came out on the wrong end versus South Carolina.

The Angels will aim to bounce back today against Florida at 10:30 a.m.
In a crazy, rain-riddled game, the pitching machine boys from Minden came away with a huge 20-1 win over the Georgia all-stars.
Reagan Coyle, Jaxon Smith and Easton Sanders all finished with doubles at the plate for Minden.
Coyle had a single to go with his double, while Landyn Huddleston, Brody Bower, Brandon Davis, Seth Mangrum and Hunter Sutton all added base hits to round out the Minden offense.
The AA Minden team is on the field right now as rain forced their second game yesterday to this morning.
