Faraday splits two games in Mountain Maryland Tournament

— POTOMAC PARK — Faraday Post 24 got five runs in the fourth inning to pull away from Frederick Post 11 and collect a 9-3 win that allowed the Frostburg team to earn a split of two games it played in the opening Day of the Mountain Maryland American Legion Tournament at the Hot Stove Complex.

Jalen Washington had three runs batted in with a triple and a double as Post 24 worked a six-run win over Frederick Post 11 to move back above .500 to 12-11. A 4-3 loss to the Jefferson Wild earlier in the day dropped Faraday to an even record.

Faraday had a 2-1 lead on Post 11 after only one inning and made it 3-1 with a run in the third. It then scored five runs in the fourth to open a seven-run lead that was more than enough.

Washington’s triple was one of three for Post 24 with Mike Livingston hitting one to go with a single and Colton Winner finishing with the third three-bagger.

Dalton Kline had a double and a single for Frederick.

Post 24’s day began with a tough loss to Jefferson, in which the score was tied at three going into the seventh before the Wild got a sacrifice fly in the top of the inning to move ahead.

Bailey Dodson hit a triple for Jefferson, while Cole Walker and Austin Cross had two singles each. Grant Reed added a double.

Dylan Shomko jacked a solo home run in the fourth, and Meshach Metz had two singles for Faraday.

Faraday Post 24 plays two more games today against Funkstwon (10 a.m.) and Hampshire (2:15 p.m.). Both games are at Legion Field in Cumberland.
