Hepple helps Lakers past Raptors

MCHENRY — Garrett exploded for 13 runs in the third inning to win the first game, then rallied for five in the bottom of the sixth to take the nitecap in a 14-4, 10-9 sweep of Montgomery in a junior college baseball Friday at Garrett.

Rios and Hepple doubled and singled and Bolla singled twice in the big 13-run third inning.

Brennan Weinstein went the distance for the win.

The Lakers trailed 7-5 after 5 1-2 innings of the second game until scoring five times in the sixth. Helbig hit a two-run single to tie it 7-7, and Hepple’s RBI single gave the Lakers their first lead.

Hepple finished 3 for 4 with a double, two singles and three runs, Michael Drake had two singles and Jhulian Spaulding a two-run double.

Jake Taylor, who homered in the first game, doubled and singled for Montgomery (32-15).

Corey Podvasnik got the win in relief, allowing two runs and striking out four in five innings. Aaron Stoner got the final out with runners on first and second to earn a save.
