Tri-State sweeps pitchers’ duel with Oakland Oaks

Powell, Foreman allow six hits in two 1-0 victories

POTOMAC PARK  — Tri-State got shutouts from Brian Powell and Jacob Foreman to get around strong Oakland pitching and send the Titans to a 17-1 record by winning 1-0 in each game of a doubleheader with the Oaks on Saturday at Memorial Field at the Hot Stove Complex.

Powell gave up three hits and struck out six as Tri-State scored in the fifth inning before Foreman got 10 strikeouts on five walks and three hits allowed with Tri-State scoring in the fourth inning to close out the day.

Powell supplied himself with a little offense by hitting a double and scoring on a single from Matt Wright in the fifth for the only run of the first half of the double dip. Foreman also doubled, but the Titans got stiff competition from Oakland’s Brian Lenhart, who allowed five hits and stuck out three in a complete-game loss.

Cam King hit a triple as Oakland’s only extra-base hit.

Tri-State was held to five hits in the second game, but used a sacrifice bunt from Foreman and a sac fly from Bryce Nightengale to score once in the fourth. Foreman held the Oaks to three singles by three different players.

Scott Cooper struck out five while being slapped with the loss.

The teams will play another doubleheader today at Oakland.

Cumberland O’s    5  12

W.Va. Power    3    2


BEL AIR  — Cody Jeffreys broke a three-all tie with a two-run home run in the sixth inning while keeping West Virginia in check to lead the Cumberland Orioles to a 5-3 win in the first of two games played Saturday at Bel Air Field.

The Orioles went on to sweep the doubleheader by cruising to a 12-2 win in the second game.

Cumberland had a total of 10 hits in the opener, but none was as big as Jeffreys’ blast in the sixth. The home run came an inning after the Orioles scored three times to tie things up on RBI singles from John Taylor, Ben Cecil and Jimmy Taylor.

Jeffreys added a single to his home run, and Roy Jeffrey’s added four singles.

West Virginia got a double and a single from Norm Hull.

Neal Eshleman paced the Orioles in the 10-run win, collecting a double and two singles to knock in two runs. Chris Wilson had two singles and two RBIs, while John and Jim Taylor had two RBIs apiece.

Justin Combs, Matt Hahn and Rick Michael all had two singles in the loss.

The Orioles and Power will play another doubleheader today at Berkeley Springs.
