YORK, Pa. —  Elliott Mortimer fired a four-hitter and Brad Wenzel and Colbe Herr had three hits as top-seeded York eliminated fourth-seeded Frostburg State from the Capital Athletic Conference tournament with a 5-1 victory Friday afternoon.

Mortimer (5-0) allowed a run in the first inning, walked two and struck out six. He gave up only three hits and did not allow a baserunner past second over the final eight innings.

Meanwhile, Andrew Hershey, Wenzel and Herr, the top of the lineup for York, were a combined 8 for 15 with three runs scored and two RBIs in leading a 12-hit attack as the Spartans (22-5) beat the Bobcats (23-10) for the third time this season.

Tied 1-1, Wenzel and Herr singled to start the York fifth. Wenzel broke the tie, scoring on a one-out single by Stephen Miele. Herr stole home to make it 3-1, and Miele came home on a double by Logan Countryman. Herr added an RBI double in the ninth.

Kevin Kean hit an RBI double and Dylan Shupe also doubled for Frostburg State.

Ryan Redinger (5-1) suffered his first loss, allowing four runs and nine hits in five innings. He walked two and struck out nine.
