Potomac State sweeps Garrett

ACM, Frostburg take two from Chesapeake, Southern Virginia

KEYSER, W.Va. — Evan Mitchell and Jamie Miller each gave Potomac State a quality start as the Catamounts swept a pair of games over Garrett College Thursday afternoon at Golden Park.

In the opener, Mitchell delivered his second straight complete game and struck out seven in the 4-3 win. The freshman allowed just three runs — all in the third inning — and walked one to raise his record to 4-0.

“Evan has really been pitching well,” said Potomac State Head Coach Doug Little. “He works ahead and changes speeds and is becoming a competitor on the mound.”

Adam Meeker’s two-run single in the bottom of the third got PSC on the board and RBI’s from Connar Bastaich and Elliott McCummings gave PSC the lead.

Garrett picked up RBI’s from Joey Johnston and Tyler Byers.

In the second game, Jamie Miller pitched six innings, striking out six and walking one as PSC picked up the sweep with a 6-1 win. Miller (3-0) allowed one run, which was unearned.

“Jamie was really good today,” said Little. “He has become the leader of this staff and he gives you all he’s got each time he’s out there. I am proud of his effort and his leadership.”

The Catamounts picked up RBI’s from five different players with Tre Kerns getting two.

Bastaich, Meeker, Dan Kerwin and Andrew Kowalo each added RBI’s. Kowalo, who saw his 10-game hit streak come to an end in the opener, responded by going 3 for 3, with a double and two singles.

“Wins are hard to get in this Region,” said Little. “This is why we work so hard, because every game takes effort and concentration and you need multiple guys to make contributions.”

“I like our team, but we are still a work in process and need to keep improving.”

Potomac State (16-8-1) will host Mercyhurst North East for four games at Golden Park. The series, originally scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, will begin on Sunday and wrap up Monday. Both twinbills will begin at 1 p.m. Garrett (4-11) hosts Anne Arundel on Saturday for a noon doubleheader.

Allegany    5  3

Chesapeake    1  2

CUMBERLAND — Dylan Wormer struck out nine and allowed no earned runs as Allegany walked to a 5-1 win in the opening half of a doubleheader it swept from Chesapeake Thursday afternoon at the Rock at Allegany College of Maryland.

The Trojans improved to 6-11 by holding off the Skipjacks in the second game to win 3-2.

Wormer earned his first collegiate win with a complete-game performance, allowing a triple to the leadoff batter before settling in to allow two more hits the rest of the way. He allowed an unearned run in the fourth but was already spotted a four-run lead at the time.

Jeff Morgan drove in two runs with a double during a four-run ACM third inning, and also had a single. Rey Adames drove in the Trojans final run with a double in the fifth.

Adam Frye had eight strikeouts and allowed seven hits as Allegany edged the Jacks by a run to complete the sweep. Dave Hornsby came on in relief during the sixth and retired Chesapeake’s Ryan Schoenbauer, who already had three singles, with the bases loaded and earned the save.

Raymond Adames and Wyatt Belinda both finished with an RBI double, and Morgan drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the third.

Allegany (2-2 Maryland JUCO) plays at Westmoreland on Sunday.

Frostburg State    4 7

Southern Virginia    0 3

POTOMAC PARK — Frostburg State used strong pitching to help it sweep its doubleheader against Southern Virginia on Thursday at the Hot Stove Complex.

The first game was a low-scoring affair, but it was the Bobcats (15-4) who were able to overcome the Knights (4-12) behind a dominating pitching performance from senior Austing Poretz. Poretz (3-1) picked up the victory after a seven-inning complete game, surrendering four hits and two walks while striking out seven. Southern Virginia never threatened Poretz, as no Knight runner advanced past second base.

FSU got all the offense it would need in the third when it struck for two. Senior Dylan Shupe’s sacrifice fly to right field brought home junior Zach Weiss. Later junior Ricky Castro scored as Kam Stewart reached on a fielding error by the second baseman.

Frostburg tacked on single runs in the fifth and sixth innings including Stewart’s solo home run in the sixth.

In the nitecap, the Bobcats had 13 hits to score seven runs.

Frostburg exploded for six runs in the bottom second inning.

Freshman Jake Stephens (1-0) picked up his first collegiate win going 4 2/3 innings and allowing four hits, three runs and five strikeouts. Weiss who went 5 for 7 with two doubles, three runs, and an RBI. Castro was 3 for 7 with a double, two runs, and an RBI. Stewart went 2 for 6 with the home run and two RBIs while Ricky Brady went 2 for 5 with two doubles and a run.

Frostburg hosts Christopher Newport on Saturday for a noon doubleheader.
