WILLIAMSPORT - Sophomore Phil Physioc hurled a two-hit shutout and got plenty of offensive support as Boonsboro beat Williamsport, 14-0, Friday afternoon in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League baseball game.

Physioc struck out six and retired 18 of the 21 batters he faced, including the first 11.

"Phil Physioc pitched a great game," Boonsboro coach Fred Kreiger said. "Phil pitched as good of a game as we've had pitched in a while. To do that against a team like Williamsport made it even more impressive."

Brad Conway finished with three runs scored and an RBI, while Harry Troxler added three RBIs and two hits for the Warriors (3-1). Keith Herbert scored three runs and Chad Davis added two hits. Travis Harrell scored two runs, while Curt Heuer had two RBIs.


"Everything just went right for us today," Kreiger said. "Our kids simply hit the ball well. We just had a great day. Sometimes, that happens in baseball. Williamsport has got a great ball club. I'm sure that they will bounce back from this and have a good season. We just feel fortunate to have a great day. Things just went our way."

Rusty Tritsch and Clint Lapole had a single each for the Wildcats' (1-1) only hits of the game.

"Phil Physioc pitched a super game today for Boonsboro," Williamsport coach Larry Wadel said. "He did a real good job. Boonsboro just played a good overall game. It's hard to win on two hits."

Boonsboro got its first run in the first inning when Herbert walked, stole second, took third on a sacrifice bunt by Troxler and came home on Physioc's RBI grounder.

The Warriors added a run in the third when Physioc scored on an outfield error and added another run in the fourth on a bunt single by Heuer.

Boonsboro increased its advantage to 8-0, getting five runs in the fifth on a bases-loaded walk, a throwing error, a ground out and a two-run single by Troxler.

The Warriors scored six more runs in the sixth. Boonsboro scored on an RBI double by Cory Linton, RBI singles by Conway and Troxler, an outfield error and a two-run throwing error.

The Warriors collected a total of 10 hits in the game.
