Fort Ashby’s Popluhar fires no-hitter, fans 18

POTOMAC PARK — Braiden Popluhar was overpowering and nearly perfect, striking out 18 and walking just one in pitching a six-inning no-hitter for the Fort Ashby Lions over the Cumberland Lions in Hot Stove League action Wednesday at Memorial Field.

Popluhar did not limit his damage to the pitcher’s mound as, at the plate, he hit a home run, a single and knocked in four runs. On the mound, he came by all of his outs by strikeout, the lone Cumberland Lions baserunner reaching on a walk in the third inning.

“Braiden was just in the zone all day long,” said coach Steve Popluhar, “I couldn’t squabble. Other than the walk ... but, hey, they’re young and they’re human. He pitched a great game.”

Grant Clayton tripled, singled and knocked in three runs for Fort Ashby, while Blake Watson, Tucker Aldridge and Skyler Crawford each knocked in a run with a single.

“The Cumberland Lions are young, but they played tough in the field,” said Popluhar. “I give them a lot of credit. They made some nice catches and made some solid plays.”

The Fort Ashby Lions (10-5-1) will play Cresaptown Eagles Friday at Holler Field.

Lakeview Auto Parts    3

KMK/Outdoor Power    2


ACCIDENT — Aaron Rodeheaver allowed only two hits while striking out nine and Lakeview Auto Parts scored twice in the sixth inning to defeat KMK Insurance/Outdoor Power Wednesday at Northern High School.

Trailing 2-1 midway through the sixth inning, Hunter Hill led off with a double and was pinched run for by Cameron King. Brooks Carr was walked and Tyler McClintock singled to load the bases. King tied the game scoring on a passed ball before Caleb King’s sacrifice fly to center brought home Carr with the eventual walk-off run.

Blake Milburn struck out seven while giving up five hits in taking the complete-game loss for KMK. Logan Milburn and Ryan Miller had KMK’s two hits, both singles.

Logan Yommer and Hill led Lakeview (16-1) with a double each. Bryce Jones RBI sacrifice fly gave Lakeview a 1-0 lead in the second inning.

KMK took its lead with a two-run fifth inning. Miller’s single, the first allowed by Rodeheaver, led off the inning. He moved to third on an error and scored on a grounder. Blake Getz, who reached on an error, also scored for the 2-1 lead.

Both teams play Friday evening at 6 p.m. Lakeview visits Keyser VFW at John Kruk Field and KMK (10-6-1) plays Grantsville S.A.L. at Hamilton Field.

Cresaptown Eagles    13

Kiwanis    1


POTOMAC PARK — The Cresaptown Eagles used a five-run fifth inning to put away the Kiwanis in the Tuesday nitecap at Memorial Field.

The Eagles were led by Brant Kitzmiller, who went 4-for-4 with a double and three singles with four runs batted in. Bryson Shepherd had three singles and three RBI, while T.J. Hartley hit a two-run double.

Kitzmiller went the first four to gain the win and was relieved by Shepherd in the fifth, as they combined to hold Kiwanis to five scattered singles. Shepherd struck out five of the six batters he faced.

The Cresaptown Eagles (11-5-1) will play the Fort Ashby Lions Friday at Holler Field. Kiwanis will play Bill Miller Equipment Thursday at Memorial Field.
