Frostburg State    11

Washington    6


CHESTERTOWN — A five-run fourth inning enabled Frostburg State to overcome an early four-run deficit and go on to defeat Washington College on Friday.

Eight players picked up at least one hit. Zach Keeler led the way with three RBIs and two runs scored going 2 for 5. Senior Dylan Shupe also went 2 for 5 and scored two runs. Junior Kam Stewart led FSU with three runs scored on two walks. Junior Ricky Brady and senior Rob Jennings each were 1 for 3 with two runs scored while Brady also chipped in two RBIs.

The Bobcats (11-3) found themselves in an early 4-0 hole after the Shoremen (7-6) scored a single run in the first and three two-out runs in the second.

FSU came back with a two-out rally of its own in the fourth, as it put together three hits, a walk, and was aided by two hit batters and a fielding error by Washington. After Shupe and Stewart reached by a walk and a hit batter, Brady came through with a two-run double to right field. Later in the inning, after Frostburg had scored its third run on a fielding error, junior Zach Weiss doubled down the left-field line with the bases loaded to score two more runs and give the Bobcats a lead they would not relinquish.

Frostburg picked up runs in the sixth and seventh to extend the lead to 7-4. Junior Ricky Castro picked up an RBI single in the sixth and Stewart scored on a wild pitch in the seventh after tripling to center field with one out.

The Shoremen made it a one-run game in the seventh with two runs. Scott Matthews knocked in the first run with a double off the fence in center field and Bryan Baquer drove in the second with an RBI groundout.

In the eighth, Frostburg scored with four two-out runs. Shupe got things started with a single to short and later came home on a wild pitch. Two batters later, Keeler belted a bases-clearing double to right center.

Sophomore Zach Lawhorn closed the door on Washington pitching the final 2 1/3 innings for FSU to record his first save. He didn’t allow a hit and retired four of the seven batters he faced by strikeout.

Connor Cooper (1-0) was the winning pitcher, surrendering just one hit and getting one strikeout in a strong two innings of work.

Matthews led Washington going 3 for 5 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

The Bobcats play Marymount today in a doubleheader at Gallaudet beginning at 1 p.m.
