Optimists    5


GRANTSVILLE  — Even though Grantsville could gather only one hit against the Cumberland Optimists, they used more than a dozen walks to scored 10 runs during a five-run win Wednesday evening in Grantsville.

The Optimists clung to a 4-3 lead after scoring two runs in each of the first two innings, while allowing Grantsville to score a run in the first and two in the second. Things fell apart in the fourth inning, though, as Grantsville scored seven times to take a 10-4 lead. The Optimists added a run in the fifth inning, but play was stopped after four and a half innings because of the time limit.

Lane Rounds had the only hit in the win, but it proved big as he tripled home three runs during the fourth inning.

Raen Smith hit two doubles and drove in a run for the Optimists. Micah Ludwick drove in two runs with two singles and Hayden DeHaven also singled twice.

Grantsville (3-2) hosts Lakeview Auto on Wednesday. Optimists plays Kiwanis, Friday night, at Memorial Field.

Salisbury Legion    7

Fort Ashby Lions    3


POTOMAC PARK — Ross Mazer and Matt Geiger teamed for a two-hitter and Salisbury Legion overcame a 2-0 deficit with a five-run third inning to beat the Lions Tuesday night at Memorial Field.

Mazer scattered two hits over the first four innings and struck out one. Geiger threw three hitless innings of relief and fanned four.

Mazer also led the offense, going 2 for 3 with a double and single. Geiger tripled and Ashton Kelly doubled for Salisbury.

Grant Clayton hit a double for Fort Ashby.

Salisbury (1-1) hosts the Kiwanis on Friday at 7:30 p.m. Fort Ashby plays again tonight when it visits Madigan’s Auto.
