Sinai’s hit lifts ACM to 5-4 win

CUMBERLAND — Back on the diamond for the first time in years, Allegany College of Maryland marked a successful return by scoring with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to pull out a 5-4 win over Montgomery Wednesday in the Trojans opener.

The Raptors rebounded strongly in the second half of the doubleheader to beat the Trojans 14-3 in five innings.

Tied 4-4 entering their final at bats in the opener, Allegany saw its first two batters record outs before Mountain Ridge graduate Kaylee DeVore singled to centerfield and advanced to second when the fielder had trouble handling the ball. Bailey Sinai then came through with the winning hit by lining a single to right field to score DeVore and give the Trojans a 5-4 victory.

DeVore and Sinai played major roles in ACM’s four-run sixth inning when DeVore followed a single by Fort Hill grad Kayla Hutson, and Sinai singled home Hutson for the first run. Another Fort Hill graduate, Alyssa Yost, hit a two-run double later in the innings. Sinai had a total of three singles in the first game.

Allegany (1-1) turned a triple play to get out of the second inning. With runners at the corners the batter hit a ground ball to DeVore at second. DeVore tagged the runner on her way to second and threw to first to record the second out. The runner who began the play on third headed for home and was tagged out by catcher Paris Duncan for the third out.

Montgomery’s win got started with a four-run top of the first and was followed by 10 more runs over the next three innings.

Gabby Paccalo got into a two-run home run in the first inning and Julie Hance added a double and a triple for the Raptors. After taking the 4-0 lead in the first, Montgomery added three runs in the second, five in the third and two more in the fourth.

Hutson had Allegany’s only extra-base hit with a double.

The Trojans will play at home again on Saturday, at noon, against Harford.
