Potomac State’s win streak at 14

Catamounts close the weekend by beating Monroe, 10-8 and 15-5

KEYSER, W.Va. — Potomac State has picked the right time to get hot. In fact the Catamounts have been hot enough to rattle off a 14-game win streak as the regular season is quickly winding down.

A steady offensive attack led Potomac State to sweep Monroe College, 10-8 and 15-5.

In the first game, Korey Foltz, Tre Porter, Fraser Brown and Eliott McCummings each drove in two runs apiece to lead the offense. Andrew Kowalo also hit his second home run of the season, a solo shot in the second inning.

Dalton Westfall worked 5 1/3 innings to pick up the win. The freshman struck out six to raise his record to 5-2 while Jamie Miller worked the final 1 1/3 innings to garner his first save of the year. He struck out two and did not allow a run to close the game.

In the nightcap, Monroe jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead highlighted by Hector Marmol’s two-run single.

The Catamounts battled back with five runs in the third and six in the fourth to go up 11-4. Doubles from Billy Sager and Tre Porter and a triple from Adam Meeker sparked the Catamounts.

Ethan Emmart picked up the win with 4 2/3 innings of solid work in relief. The sophomore struck out two and increased his record to 3-0.

Meeker and Porter each finished with three runs batted in. Daniel Kerwin finished 3 for 4 with two doubles, a single and two RBIs.

Weather permitting, Potomac State (33-10-1) will host Cecil College today for a 1 p.m. doubleheader.
