After splitting a doubleheader Saturday, the Brunswick Community College baseball team lost 14-0 to the USC Sumter Fire Ants Sunday afternoon at West Brunswick High School.

The Dolphins finished with two hits in the seven-inning game. They struck out 10 times in 24 at-bats.

The Fire Ants scored three runs in the second inning against starter Travis Bradley (1-1). A walk, a hit batter and an error loaded the bases. An error, a fielder’s choice and another walked put the Fire Ants ahead 3-0.

After scoring single runs in the third and fourth innings, the Fire Ants scored four runs in the fifth, two of them against reliever Aaron Evans after he hit batters with the bases loaded.

Jordan Davis pitched the seventh, and the Fire Ants scored five runs, the final three on a two-out double.

Bradley, who threw a no-hitter in his first start, gave up eight hits and was charged with nine runs. He walked two, hit two and stuck out two.
