Wilhelm’s home runs lead MR to 50 straight victories

Miners sweep Frankfort


CUMBERLAND — Mountain Ridge’s Kiya Wilhelm hopes the weather never improves in Frostburg.

The Miners have had to play three games at Cavanaugh Field because of the conditions at home and the slugging outfielder has responded with a home run in each, adding two more Saturday as Mountain Ridge swept a doubleheader from Frankfort, 13-2 and 20-2, to collect its 50th consecutive win.

Wilhelm launched a two-run home run in the opener and finished the afternoon off by crushing a grand slam in the 18-run win. She connected for a three-run shot against Northern during a 13-2 win on Thursday.

The Miners began the day by scoring 12 runs in their first at bats, highlighted by a three-run bomb from Tessa Lutton. They added a run in the third.

Katie Llewellyn hit a double and a single and Anna Broadwater singled three times.

Katie Beeman had three of Frankfort’s four hits with a triple and two doubles to go with two runs scored.

In game two, Mountain Ridge scored seven times in the first inning and added a 12-run bombardment during the third. Broadwater added three more singles and Emma Baker had four RBIs with two singles. Lutton, Molly Winner and Chelsea Muir all finished with two singles.

Beeman had two more singles for the Falcons in the second game.

The Miners (4-0) play at Hyndman on Monday, and Frankfort hosts Petersburg.
