Porter’s hit lifts PSC

Catamounts beat Chesapeake 3-1 on 8th-inning homer

— BEL AIR — Tre Porter hit a tie-breaking two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning as defending champion and top-seeded Potomac State beat fourth-seeded Chesapeake 3-1 in the opening round of the Region XX, Division I junior college baseball tournament Friday at Harford Community College.

Trailing 1-0 most of the way, the Catamounts (37-11-1) did all their scoring in the eighth. Jamison Jones led off with a double and tied it by scoring on a one-out double by Elliott McCummings. With two outs, Porter belted the two-run homer that put the Catamounts on top.

Potomac State pitcher Dalton Westfall worked around three infield hits in the top of the ninth and got the win in a pitchers’ duel with Chesapeake’s Bobby Schultz. Westfall (7-2) went the distance, scattered eight hits and allowed one unearned run while striking out four and walking two.

“Dalton just keeps getting better and better,” said Potomac State head coach Doug Little. “We really like the way he commands the strike zone and competes. Both guys pitched solid games. They both deserved to win.”

Schultz (3-5) allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked one.

“It was a great college baseball game,” Little added. “Our guys found a way to hang in there long enough and finally break through in the end.”

Chesapeake’s run came in the third inning when Ausaf Hussain walked, stole second and scored on an infield error.

Potomac State will play third seed and tournament host Harford (26-28-1) today at 11 a.m. Harford beat second-seeded Hagerstown 12-4 in the tournament opener. Chesapeake (26-24) played second-seeded Hagerstown (32-23) in an elimination game late on Friday.
