ACM loses opener to Lenoir, 3-2

Womer, Kline, Pieper pitch well in loss; Poretz holds down Mary Washington in FSU’s 8-2 victory

KINSTON, N.C. — Three leadoff walks scored as Lenoir Community College put up single runs in the fourth, the sixth and seventh as the Lancers defeated Allegany College of Maryland, 3-2, Tuesday afternoon at Lenoir.

After nearly a month of trying, the Trojans were finally able to get a game in to start their season, and had to go to North Carolina to do it but, given the circumstances, received a well-pitched game from starter Dylan Womer, who worked the first five, and relievers Tanner Kline and Cody Pieper.

“We played well considering ... We just came up short.” said Allegany coach Steve Bazarnic. “It was really the first time we’ve seen live pitching, but we played pretty good defense. We just needed to get started.”

Allegany took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth when Brandon Miller doubled and would score on a fielder’s choice groundball off the bat of Wyatt Belinda. Lenoir tied the score in the bottom half when Taylor Tew singled in Robbie Hiser, who had led off the inning with a walk.

Allegany went back ahead in the fifth when Corey Shroyer walked, moved up on a sacrifice and then scored on a Jeff Morgan fielder’s choice.

Lenoir tied in the sixth when Ryan Blake and Tew walked, and Tee McConnell singled in Blake. Then in the seventh, Justin Radford and Cory Nygar led off with walks for Lenoir and Radford scored on Hiser’s single to produce the eventual winning run.

Weather permitting, the teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader today, either at 1 or 3 p.m., at Kinston Stadium.

Frostburg State     8

Mary Washington    2

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Starting pitcher Austin Poretz surrendered only two runs  — one earned — in eight innings to help lead Frostburg State over conference foe Mary Washington on Tuesday.

The Bobcats (8-2, 1-2 Capital Athletic Conference) picked up their first conference win due in large part to Poretz turning in his best start of the young season. He improved to 2-0 after holding the Eagles (11-3) to just six hits and on six strikeouts.

The offense provided more than enough for Poretz, as it collected 14 hits and eight different players picked up at least one hit.

Frostburg got all the runs they would need in the first three innings as they touched home five times.

The Bobcats’ Zach Weiss, Dylan Shupe, Ricky Brady and Kam Stewart each picked up multiple hits, including three for Weiss and Brady. Shupe and Remalia each had two RBIs.

Nick Huff came in to pitch in the bottom of the ninth for the Bobcats and picked up right where Portetz left off. He had one strikeout and did not allow a hit.

Frostburg travels to take on St. Mary's for a noon doubleheader on Saturday.
