Patient Bridgeport beats Frankfort, 9-6

CUMBERLAND — SHORT GAP, W.Va. — It took two days, but Bridgeport returned to Frankfort and increased its two-run lead to three to defeat the Falcons, 9-6, and advance to the Class AA state tournament to be held next week in Charleston at Appalachian Power Park.

With Greg Smith and Cullin Cutright on first and second picking up where they left when the game was suspended by rain in the top of the sixth on Thursday, the Indians scored both on a throwing error and an RBI single by Tyler Marks.

Frankfort tried to answer in the bottom of the inning, loading the bases on a Gage Shaffer single

before a fly out ended the inning.

Reliever Colten Dorsey pitched a scoreless seventh before a two-out RBI single by Braiden Popluhar was the only run the Falcons could generate in the bottom of the seventh.

The Falcons finished the season 17-15. Bridgeport improves to 30-6.

On Thursday, Frankfort took an early 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the second inning. Dorsey singled, Shaffer walked and Dorsey scored when pitcher Josh Boggio threw wildly past third on a bunt by Garrett Shoemaker. Shaffer scored on a single to left by Cole Smith to make it 2-0.

The lead didn’t last long, however, as Bridgeport sent 20 men to the plate over the next three innings.

In the third, five of the first six hitters reached base safely. Cutright singled in the first run and Tyler Skidmore hit a shot off pitcher Josh McNeil for an RBI infield single to tie it. Cutright scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch, and Troy Anderson beat a throw home on a grounder hit to second by Marks to make it 4-2.

The Indians scored two unearned runs in the fourth to pad the lead to 6-2, and Skidmore doubled off reliever Popluhar in the fifth, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on a balk to make it 7-2.

The Falcons, who had chances to score in every inning and stranded seven baserunners through the first four innings, was able to finally cash in in the fifth inning.

Thane Cutter, Tyler Conley and Dorsey opened the inning with singles, with Cutter coming home on Dorsey’s hit. Shaffer singled to left to score Conley, Shoemaker reached on an error to load the bases, and one out later Smith’s fielder’s choice grounder chopped the Bridgeport lead to 7-5.

Anthony Caldera, Bridgeport’s third pitcher of the day, got out of the inning without further damage, and after Greg Smith singled and Cutright walked to begin the top of the sixth, the rain flooded the field, suspending the game at that point.
