Alco, MR each rout Preston, top Smithsburg by a run

POTOMAC PARK  — Allegany played both ends of the victory scale Saturday during the Mountain Ridge Easter Tournament, slugging its way to a 10-run win over Preston County before squeezing a run home in the bottom of the sixth inning to sneak past Smithsburg and finish the day with a pair of wins.

Chris Fram connected on a grand slam in the fifth inning and had a total of six runs batted in to lead the Campers to a 13-3 win over Preston, while Trenton Eirich squeezed in the game-winning run for a 6-5 win over the Leopards.

The Campers led 4-3 going into the home half of the fifth inning against the Knights when Fram got into a pitch with the bases loaded as part of a seven-run inning. Fram added two more doubles and had a total of six runs batted in as the Campers won in six innings.

Carter Imes added a double and a single, and Wade McGee singled twice for two RBIs. Eirich had two RBIs on a single and pitched into the fifth inning before being relieved by Bryce Nightengale.

Allegany (3-0) held a 4-1 lead over the Leopards through three innings and led 5-3 after the fifth, but Smithsburg scored two times in the sixth to knot the score at 5-5.

Ryan Murphy, who had three singles total, started the Allegany seventh with a base hit back up the middle. He advanced to second on a passed ball and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Dylan Shockey, before Eirich laid down the winning bunt.

Fram and Imes joined Eirich with two singles each in the one-run win.

The Campers return home to play Northern at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
