Moorefield sweeps Frankfort

MOOREFIELD, W.Va. — Austin Williams hit an infield single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh to score the winning run and allow Moorefield to collect both halves of a doubleheader played with Frankfort on Saturday afternoon.

The teams battled back-and-forth the second time out with Frankfort starting first by scoring four runs in the opening inning. The Falcons nudged the score to 7-0 in the top of the second, but Moorefield replied by scoring five times in the home half. Each side scored twice in the third, and the Yellow Jackets took a 12-10 lead with five runs in the fifth.

Lance Taylor had three hits, four runs scored and two runs batted in for Moorefield. Matt Combs and DeShawn Brown added three RBIs on two hits.

Thane Cutter hit a solo home run, one of two on the day, and added an RBI double to lead Frankfort. Ryan Chase and Gage Shaffer both had two singles and two RBIs.

Adam Snyder had two hits and two RBIs for the Yellow Jackets in the early game, with Brown getting two RBIs on one hit.

Cutter homered in the sixth inning for Frankfort.

Moorefield will host Petersburg on Monday. The Falcons host Northern on Tuesday.


Southern 2, Keyser 1

KEYSER, W.Va. — Winning pitcher Matt Imhoff and Billy Fazenbaker had two hits apiece to lift Southern past Keyser in an Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference game.

Scoreless through four innings, Southern (2-3, 2-0 AMAC) took a 2-0 lead in the fifth. Fazenbaker led off with a single and scored on a two-out single by Imhoff. Scott Cooper had an RBI single later in the inning.

Keyser got its run in the sixth when Andrew Parrish drew a walk off Imhoff, stole second and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Aaron Rogers and Josh Bane limited Southern to six hits.

Southern won the jayvee game 16-6.

The Rams play again Tuesday at Mountain Ridge. Keyser (0-7) will play at Northern on Monday at 3:30 p.m.

Northern JVs

Garrett Kesner held the Huskies hitless into the fifth until Ben Beeman singled. All of Northern’s runs came in the sixth with RBIs from Metz, Brett Oates and Clark Morin.
