Fort Cumberland escapes with split against Jefferson

CUMBERLAND  — Wade McGee induced a pop up to the short stop to escape with the bases loaded and earn the save as Fort Cumberland Junior Post 13 split a doubleheader with Jefferson County by winning the late game 9-8 Thursday at Allegany College of Maryland.

Jefferson scored three runs in each of the final three innings to take the opener, 9-3. Fort Cumberland (17-17) plays a doubleheader today at noon, at ACM, against Morgantown.

Fort Cumberland scored seven runs in the fifth inning to build a 9-5 lead over Jefferson, and carried the same four-run lead into the seventh inning. Jefferson managed to score three times, cutting the lead to a run, and still had the bases loaded when McGee got the final out.

Blake Milburn delivered a double and two singles, and Brandon Reed and Adam Duvall had two singles each. Duvall had a two-run single in the seven-run fifth.

For Jefferson, Lewis hit two singles and French a double.

Post 13 led 3-0 going into the fifth inning of the first half of the twinbill but then allowed nine runs over the final three frames to fall behind.

Austin Bittner hit a two-run double, while Dylan Wilson and Garrett Kesner had two singles apiece.

Bayliss and Price both had two singles in the loss.
