Tuesday's Local Roundup

Hagerstown Community College suffered its first defeat at its new on-campus field Tuesday afternoon, but halted that losing streak at one and salvaged a doubleheader split with Corning (N.Y.).

The Hawks lost Game 1, 8-7, but won Game 2, 6-2.

During the second-game victory, HCC freshman pitcher Andria Cook retired 15 of 19 batters in five scoreless innings of relief to raise her record to 6-1. She did not allow a single hit and gave up only one walk. Corning (1-3), ranked No. 1 in the NJCAA Division III poll, had three of its four baserunners reach on errors.

"I went out there to do the best that I can to help out my team," Cook said. "I just tried to pitch low strikes either inside or outside in order to get them to hit ground balls. I think that I did pretty well and I accomplished what I needed to."


Catcher Heidi Moats hit three doubles and third baseman Kim Twigg had two triples for HCC (10-2). Mary Beth Kennell gave the Hawks the lead for good at 3-2 with an RBI double in the third inning.

Shepherd 3-8, WL 1-7

WEST LIBERTY, W.Va. - Adam Straskulic had three hits to become the Rams' all-time hits leader, and the Rams swept a road doubleheader in the West Virginia Conference.

Straskulic got one hit in the first game and two in the second to move to 188 for his career, passing the mark of 187 held by Damien Austin, who finished at Shepherd in 1999.

After winning Game 1 behind Justin Collins, who scattered four hits over six innings, the Rams (10-11, 3-1) needed an extra frame to complete the sweep. Brian Powell's sacrifice fly in the eights scored Brian Tozer with the winning run.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Jefferson scored three runs on no hits in the second innning and Sam Walls ended a 5-2 victory over Notre Dame with his best Willie May impression, then let Brandon Conway take over for a 13-2 victory over Loudoun County in the nightcap.
