CUMBERLAND — The bats have begun to click for the Allegany College of Maryland Trojans as a two-run first-inning home run by Tanner Klein got the ball, and the runs, rolling as the Trojans pounded out 14 hits in defeating Hagerstown Community College, 10-7, in a Maryland JUCO game Thursday at The Rock.
Allegany (9-19 overall, 6-11 JUCO) took the 2-0 lead, then a 5-0 lead with three runs in the third and put the game out of reach with a four-run sixth.
Leadoff batter Jeff Morgan led the Trojans at the plate, going 4 for 5 with a double and three singles and scoring a run. Rey Adames had two singles, including a two-run single in the four-run sixth.
Designated hitter Dylan Womer had a two-run single in the third inning, while Brooks Harrison had two singles.
“It was nice to see us hit the way we did, to break it open a little bit with the bats,” said Allegany Head Coach Steve Bazarnic. “(Starting pitcher Tyler Fellner) did a great job through six innings. He got charged with five runs but to that point they got nothing. Then (Alex) Beiler and Womer sealed the deal.
“It was a quality win for us.”
Fellner started the game for the Trojans and held the Hawks scoreless through the first five before they reached him for two in the sixth. After being charged with three runs in the seventh, Beiler came to relieve and got Allegany to the ninth when Womer came in to close it out.
Allegany will host Harford Saturday for a 1 p.m. doubleheader.
