POTOMAC PARK — Ridgeley scored three runs in the top of the seventh to thwart Fort Ashby Lions comback, 9-5, Wednesday at Hamilton Field.

Winning pitcher Wyatt Yates, who had 10 strikeouts while limiting Fort Ashby to five hits, had three of Ridgeley’s 15 hits. A.J. Crist also had three hits including a double. Brett Whiteman and Tyler Shanholtz both had two base hits while Carson Robinette and Caleb Hare each doubled.

Cameron Bollinger had two singles for Fort Ashby while Blake Fairmen doubled and Foster Konis had an RBI single.

Ridgeley led 6-2 after 5 1/2 innings before Fort Ashby scored three in the bottom of the sixth to pull within one before Ridgeley answered with three in the top of the seventh.

Ridgeley (15-2) plays the Cumberland Optimist on Sunday, 11 a.m., at Memorial Field. The Lions (7-12) play Greg’s Auto Body on Friday at Hamilton Field at 6 p.m.

Cresaptown Eagles    5

Kiwanis    4

CRESAPTOWN — Cole Holler finished off a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh by providing a walk-off single that scored Jake VanMeter and lifted the Eagles past Kiwanis Wednesday night at Jim Holler Field.

Kiwanis scored its four runs over the first two innings and held a 4-1 lead until the Eagles added another run in the sixth. Cresaptown then scored the final three runs they needed in their last at bats to improve to 13-6.

Cameron O’Neal led off the seventh with a single and Jackson Bauer walked before Christian Wilhelm sacrificed them to second and third with a bunt. VanMeter hit his second double of the day to drive in O’Neal and Bauer and came home with the winning run when Holler singled down the  left field line.

Kiwanis got two singles apiece from Connor Kelly and Brody Evix.

Brenten Miller earned the win after entering in the fifth and holding Kiwanis off the board.

The Eagles will play at Memorial Field Friday against Frostburg First United. Kiwanis is off until it plays at Grantsville SAL on Wednesday.
