Chesapeake sweeps Allegany

WYE MILLS — Shayla Loudermilk homered in each game of a doubleheader to put the wind in the sails of the Chesapeake Skipjacks during a sweep of Allegany College of Maryland on Thursday in Maryland JUCO action.

Loudermilk hit a three-run home run in the third inning of a 7-4 win that opened the afternoon and then hit a grand slam in the second game during an 11-0 win that completed the day.

The Trojans took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first in the opener and led until the Skipjacks scored three times in the third on Loudermilk’s homer. ACM sliced the lead down to a run, 3-2, on a solo home run from Southern graduate Lindsay Brady and went ahead when former Mountain Ridge standout Kaylee DeVore homered with a runner on in the top of the fifth, but Chesapeake added four runs in the sixth to jump back on top.

Loudermilk registered 12 strikeouts in a complete-game victory, and allowed five total hits, two on singles to ACM’s Paris Duncan.

Chesapeake got off to a much quicker start in the second half of the twinbill by scoring four runs in the first inning and five more in the second behind Loudermilk’s slam and a three-run shot in the third from Bridget Garvey.

Anny Turner held Allegany (13-9) to four hits.

The Trojans will play a doubleheader at Constitution Park on Saturday against Anne Arundel.
