O’s hand Titans their first loss

BEL AIR — A two-run second inning was the difference for the Cumberland Orioles as they handed the Tri-State Titans their first loss of the season in the opener, while Brian Powell was masterful in pitching a one-hit shutout in the Titans’ Game 2 victory in a Pen-Mar WV League doubleheader Saturday at Bel Air Field.

The Orioles (5-5) won the opener, 2-1, while the Titans (9-1) took the second game, 3-0.

In the opener, Cumberland’s Ryan Bobo led off the bottom of the second inning with a double and moved to third on a single by John Taylor. After Jimmy Taylor walked to load the bases and with two out, Neal Eshleman hit a hard ground ball to the shortstop, with two runs scoring on the errant throw to first.

In the Tri-State fifth, Drew O’Neal and Jacob Foreman both walked to start the inning, and after a fielder’s choice by Cody Ellsworth put runners at first and third, Mike Hutchinson had a bloop hit just beyond the reach of the Orioles shortstop to score O’Neal with the Titans’ run.

Bobo doubled twice for the O’s, while John Taylor singled twice. Tristin Beyer had two singles for the Titans.

Orioles starter Trey Beasom worked the first six innings to gain the win, striking out seven and giving up five hits. Marcus Weaver came on in the seventh to gain the save, with two strikeouts and a flyball out.

Jacob Foreman went the distance for the Titans and took a tough loss, giving up just five hits and striking out seven.

In the second game, Powell took a no-hitter into the fifth before Austin Cook singled for Cumberland with two outs. Powell struck out eight Cumberland batters and hit one.

The Titans took a 2-0 lead in the first when Powell was hit by a pitch to lead off the game. With one out, O’Neal singled and with two outs, Ellsworth doubled home Powell and O’Neal.

In the Tri-State fourth, with one out, Hutchinson walked and scored on a Beyer single.

Weaver worked the first four and took the loss for the Orioles.

The teams will meet again today, 1 p.m., for another doubleheader at Hamilton Field.
