Mountain Ridge climbs past Northern, 13-4

Miners visit Alco at 4 p.m. with chance to repeat as section champs

FROSTBURG — Mountain Ridge turned a one-run deficit into a nine-run lead over the course of the final three innings Tuesday evening during a 13-4 win over Northern that set the Miners up with a spot in today’s Maryland 1A West Section Championship.

The fifth-ranked Miners (13-7)will try for their second consecutive section crown this afternoon at 4 o’clock when they visit No. 1 Allegany.

Mountain Ridge struck first with two runs in the second inning, but Northen scored three in the third thanks to Jerad Fike’s three-run bomb. The Miners then exploded for six runs in the fourth, three more in the fifth and finished with a couple runs in the sixth.

Josh VanMeter finished 3 for 4 with three runs batted in, Jake Hafer added three RBIs on a double and a single, and Jake Kyle hit an RBI-double.

Mike Strietbeck and Tucker Burley each added an RBI single, while Michael Livingston finished the day with a double and a single.

Hafer hit an RBI, and VanMeter hit a two-run single during the Mountain Ridge fourth.

Justin Derato went 3 for 3 with a double and one RBI for Northern.

Brandon Markwood had five strikeouts and two walks in five-plus innings to get the win.

Northern finishes the season at 13-9.

St. Maria Goretti    3

Bishop Walsh    1

CUMBERLAND — Jake Moats led off the game with a home run, and the St. Maria Goretti Gaels tacked on another run later in the inning, which would be enough in their 3-1 victory over Bishop Walsh in the opening round of the Maryland Private Schools State Tournament Tuesday at Al Martin Field on the campus of Bishop Walsh.

After Moats’ homer started the game, the Gaels’ Casey Bartholomew reached on an error and scored on a Kevin Proctor double to make it 2-0.

The Spartans scored their run in the bottom of the third inning when Dylan Wilson scored on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Reed. Goretti, however, got that run back in the top of the fifth when Wusif Bayoh doubled and then scored on a double by Bartholomew.

Proctor, who also singled, pitched a complete game to gain the win, limiting BW to just two hits — a single and a double by Wilson — and striking out five.

BW’s Reed also pitched a complete game, giving up six hits and striking out seven.

Bishop Walsh (2-17) will play The Avalon School today, 4:30 p.m., at Kelly Park in Gaithersburg in the second-round of the double-elimination tournament.
