Hager, Miners roll over BW, 16-1

FROSTBURG — Jake Hafer tossed four innings of three-hit ball, allowed one earned run and had two hits  as Mountain Ridge ran away from Bishop Walsh 16-1 in an abbreviated meeting Saturday afternoon in Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference action.

The Miners wasted no time in getting on the board, scoring four runs in the first and five in the second. After taking the third inning off, Mountain Ridge finished with seven runs in the fourth. The Spartans got their run in the top of the fourth, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the 10-run rule from being employed.

Hafer had a double and a single as part of the Miners’ 13 hits, and Lucas Lowry had two singles and two RBIs. Alex Whetzel drove in two with one single and Mike Strietbeck added an RBI double.

On the mound, Hafer had six strikeouts in four innings and A.J. Winters struck out three in one inning.

The Miners are now 3-2 overall and 2-2 in the AMAC. They play at Hampshire on Monday at 7 p.m. The Spartans (1-3, 0-3) host Fort Hill Tuesday.

Keyser    5, Petersburg    4

PETERSBURG, W.Va. — Winning pitcher Josh Bane hit a two-run double and survived a seventh-inning rally by Petersburg to lead Keyser to victory.

The Golden Tornado (2-4) never trailed, and was up 4-0 after a three-run fifth inning, highlighted by Bane’s two-run double. Keyser took a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh.

Petersburg (3-2) scored four runs in the final inning and had the tying run at second base when Bane got the final out.

Logan Robinette went 2 for 3 with a double and a single for Keyser. Brandon George had a two-run double in the seventh inning for Petersburg. Alex See had a pair of singles.

Bane scattered eight hits and struck out six in the win.
