Quick-strike Keyser turns back Fort Hill, 6-4

KEYSER, W.Va. — Keyser scored four runs in the bottom of the second and concluded the game with a bang-bang double play to defeat Fort Hill Monday in an Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference game at Keyser.

Josh Bane tripled, doubled and singled to knock in four runs for Keyser, while Travis Smith had two doubles and a single. Noah Hartman brought in a run on a fielder’s choice.

The Sentinels took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first before Keyser got one back in the bottom half, then scored four in the second. The Golden Tornado made it 6-2 with a run in the fourth before the Sentinels brought it to within 6-4 with two in the top of the sixth.

In the top of the seventh, Fort Hill had the bases loaded with one out and Keyser brought in Daniel Troup to relieve starter Logan Robinette, who worked 6-1/3 innings, striking out four. The first pitch Troup threw to Fort Hill’s Adam Duvall was a ball. The second pitch he threw, Duvall hit a one-hopper right back to Troup, who forced the runner at home, allowing catcher Vinnie Cuthbertson to throw to first for the game-ending double play.

Brandon Reed, who started and worked the first five innings for Fort Hill and had 10 strikeouts, had two singles while Duvall and Chris King both had RBI singles.
