George no-hits Frankfort

Vikings beat Falcons, 2-1; Hampshire turns a triple play

SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Brandon George fired a no-hitter and Trevor Harman’s two-run base hit in the seventh lifted fifth-ranked Petersburg over Frankfort 2-1 Tuesday evening at Frankfort High School.

George struck out 10 and walked one in getting the victory. In the first inning, he hit Cole Smith, the first batter he faced. Smith later advanced to second on a throwing error and scored on Hunter Jenkins’s groundout RBI.

From there, George struck out seven of the next eight batters and gave up a walk.

Frankfort’s starter, Jenkins, scattered 10 hits as the Falcons held on to the 1-0 lead until the seventh inning.

In the top of the inning, Trent Borrer had a base hit and Ryan Colaw doubled, setting up Harman’s eventual two-run, game-winning hit.

Colaw, Borrer and Harman all had two hits.

The Vikings (8-6), winners of three straight, host Moorefield Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Frankfort (8-6) visits Keyser Thursday at 4:30 p.m.

No. 2 Hampshire    6

Cazenovia    5

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Hampshire relied on a four-run outburst in the bottom of the fifth inning after turning a triple play in the top of the frame to beat Cazenovia (N.Y.) 6-5 in Myrtle Beach.

The second-ranked Trojans got out to a 2-1 lead after the first inning, but fell behind 4-2 in the third and 5-2 in the top of the fifth. Cazenovia had just taken the three-run lead and had two runners on base with no one out when pitcher Ethan Turner snared a line drive back at him, wheeled and threw to second for the second out before completing the triple play by relaying to first.

Hampshire (10-5) got a run scoring double from Bucky Timbrook in the bottom of the fifth, as well as an RBI single from Zach Rhodes, on its way to four runs and a 6-5 lead that Shane Ennis came on and saved in the seventh inning.

Timbrook added a pair of singles to his double, Cody Kesner had two singles and Ennis had a two-run single.

Fellows had a double and a single with one RBI for Cazenovia.

The Trojans dropped a 1-0 pitching battle to Westhill (N.Y.) on Monday.

Hampshire didn’t allow an earned run, but made three errors that loaded the bases in the seventh and then hit a batter on an 0-2 count with two outs to force in the only run.

Walsh shut the Trojans offense down with 11 strikeouts and one hit — a single by Ennis.

Hampshire will play another New York school today at noon when it faces McClancy.

Fort Hill    11

Bishop Walsh    1

CUMBERLAND — Fort Hill had two big innings that pushed the Sentinels to a five-inning win over Bishop Walsh Tuesday in City League action at Al Martin Field.

The Sentinels got a run in the top of the first and opened up a 7-1 lead with six runs in the third. They finished off their scoring by getting the final four runs in the fourth.

Brandon Stotler led the way for Fort Hill with a triple and a single. Michael Wright and Devin Erichson both finished with a double.

Bishop Walsh got a double from Stefan Miller and two singles from Dylan Wilson. Wilson scored the Spartans only run in the frist inning.

Fort Hill (4-7, 3-4 AMAC, 1-1 City) plays today at Hyndman. Bishop Walsh (4-7, 0-6, 0-2) entertains Mountain Ridge this afternoon.

Pendleton County    7

Tygarts Valley    1

MILL CREEK, W.Va. — Tim Hevener fired a four-hitter and Andrew Thompson hit a two-run triple during a five-run seventh inning to help carry Pendleton County past Tygarts Valley Monday evening.

Hevener, a sophomore southpaw, struck out 13 and walked only two in the complete-game win.

Locked in a pitchers’ duel with Tygarts Valley lefty Owen Arbogast, the Wildcats (14-5, 8-1 PVC) led 2-1 before getting some breathing room with the five-run seventh, which featured Thompson’s triple, an RBI double by Luke Cooper and an RBI single by Jacob Lambert.

Cooper ended up with a double and a single and Jesse Lambert had two singles and an RBI for Pendleton, which plays again tonight at East Hardy.

New Life    17
