Garrett sweeps doubleheader

Podbasnik flirts with no-hitter in opener; Reed leads way in nitecap

HAMPTON, Va. — Former Moorefield standout Korey Reed put Garrett in front with a two-run double in the eighth inning to lead the Lakers to a 7-4 win and a sweep of Thomas Nelson.

Cody Podbasnik took a no-hitter into the sixth inning as Garrett won the opening game 15-0.

Looking for a split after Garrett dominated the early game, the Gators scored four times in the bottom of the fifth to tie the score. A scoreless sixth and seventh led to extra innings, but Reed helped his team act quickly and take the lead for good.

Reed worked the first seven innings and had 10 strikeouts. Aaron Stoner added two more strikeouts in the eighth.

Podbasnik had six strikeouts through six innings and lost his no-hit bid on an infield single in the bottom of the sixth. He left with a 12-0 lead when Bryce Belcher entered.

Belcher hit a two-run home run in the top of the seventh and Jason Hepple launched a three-run shot in the fifth. Mike Bolla had a double and two singles and Carlos King singled twice.

The Lakers play a pair at Prince George’s today at 1 p.m.

Cecil    11    17

Allegany    0      0

CUMBERLAND  — Cecil’s Cody Albright and Jordan Santak silenced the Allegany College bats, while the Seahawks made all the noise they wanted in sweeping the Trojans in a Maryland JUCO doubleheader at The Rock.

Albright struck out six and allowed five hits in shutting out Allegany over five innings before Santak fanned nine and allowed four hits over the same amount of time to complete the sweep. Both games were stopped after five innings.

The Seahawks had 12 hits in the opener. Tyler Albert tripled twice and drove in two runs, Josh Martin and Chris Doherty had two singles and two RBIs and  Matt Cleary two singles and one RBI.

Rey Adames had two extra-base hits for ACM, a triple and a double.

Cecil had 19 hits in the second game and scored 11 runs in the fifth inning. Doherty had three singles and RBIs, Josh Tatnall three singles and two RBIs and Albright three singles and one RBI.

Adames singled twice for Allegany (6-9, 2-4 JUCO), which hosts Westmoreland today at 11:30.
