Lenoir sweeps ACM

LENOIR, N.C. — Lenoir wiggled out of a seventh-inning jam to win the first game 5-4, then pounded out 13 hits in a 13-0 victory in the second in sweeping a doubleheader from Allegany on Friday afternoon.

The games were the final two for the Trojans in a season-opening, five-game series. The Trojans went 1-4, but three of the four losses came on one-run games.

In Friday’s first game, Cory Furry hit a two-run double in a three-run sixth that got the Trojans to within 4-3. Lenoir made it 5-3 with a run in the bottom of the sixth, and the Trojans threatened again in the seventh. Dave Ormsby drew a bases-loaded, two-out walk to cut it to 5-4, but Robbie Hiser came on and got the next man with a strikeout to end the game.

Both teams had six hits. Adam Frey pitched five innings and absorbed the loss. Spencer Phillips had three hits and two RBIs for Lenoir.

In the second game, the Lancers led 5-0 after four innings, then blew things open with a six-run fifth. Chastin Radford had four hits and four RBIs and Nick Stuart a triple, single and four RBIs for Lenoir.

Brandon Tant pitched six innings, struck out five and teamed with Ryan Cobb for a two-hitter. Ormsby had two singles to account for the Trojans’ hits.

Allegany plays again Saturday in a noon twinbill at Cecil.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Potomac State pounded out 24 hits and overcame an 11-run inning by Cumberland County to win the opener, then dominated the nitecap for a doubleheader sweep.

In the first game, Tre Porter led the way with a home run, a double, two singles and four RBIs. Adam Meeker homered, doubled, singled twice and drove in a career-high five runs.

Billy Sager and Fraser Brown each added three hits for the Catamounts.

Cumberland County scored 11 runs in the third inning for an 11-6 lead, but was blanked the rest of the way. The Cats answered with an eight-run fourth to regain the lead.

Robert Bunton and Jose Martinez had RBI doubles for Cumberland County.

Drew Hemminger pitched the final three innings for the win, striking out five and walking one.

In the second game, freshman Kyle Elliott went the distance and earned his first win with a three-hit shutout.

Sager hit his first homer of the year, singled and knocked in two runs, and Brown tripled, singled and had two RBIs to lead the attack. Daniel Kerwin, Connar Bastaich and Elliott McCummings also had two hits.
