Roundup - Indians win in marathon game


NEWVILLE, Pa. - Phil Woodring's RBI single in the top of the 14th inning on Tuesday afternoon brought in the game-winning run as No. 7 Waynesboro finished off a 11-9 victory over Big Spring that was a month in the making.

The two teams resumed a 9-9 game in the top of the ninth from a game suspended by darkness on April 2. Between now and then, the Indians (12-6, 7-4 Mid Penn Commonwealth) played another 14-inning game - all in one day against Chambersburg on April 18.

"This is the longest game I've ever been in," Waynesboro coach Greg Chandler said with a laugh. "Tell me about it. This has been a crazy year. ... But the big thing is we won this one."

With one out in the 14th, Brian Kirkpatrick walked and was replaced by courtesy runner Wes Lynn, who stole second. Rusty Lynn walked, and then after a strikeout, Woodring singled in a run for the lead and Adam Caron followed with an RBI double for insurance.


It added up to a win for A.J. Freelove, who allowed just three hits in 7 2/3 innings. Woodring finished 4-6 with 5 RBI and Caron, Rusty Lynn and Eli Rock all had two hits for Waynesboro. It can clinch second in the division with a win vs. Gettysburg today.

"From where we were (when this game was suspended) and where we're at," Chandler said. "we've come a long way."

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Matt Noll went 3-for-3 with a double and four RBI as the Cougars clinched the top seed in the Region II Section 1 tournament starting on Friday.

Sam Walls struck out four in five innings and also knocked in a run for Jefferson (28-5-1). Brad Webb also had two hits and an RBI for Jefferson, which opens against the No. 4-seeded Applemen (17-12-1) at 7 Friday night at Sager Field.

BRUNSWICK, Md. - Kevin Goode just missed hitting his sixth home run in nine days, settling for an RBI double for the MVAL champion Railroaders.

No. 10 Clear Spring 4, Grace 0

Clear Spring coach Jim Hutson said he's happy that sophomore pitcher Adam Mills just doesn't rely on his fastball.

Mills (8-2), at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, sometimes dominates as a power pitcher but used his breaking ball to no-hit Grace Academy at the Hagerstown Colt League field.

"(Mills) is an athlete with some muscle, but he's got some room to grow,'' Hutson said. "(Mills) didn't overpower them (Tuesday). He was using his curve a lot and getting them to miss for third strike.''

Mills struck out seven, allowed four flyouts and got 10 outs on the ground, including a double play in the second inning that eliminated Grace's lone baserunner, who reached via a walk.

Hutson said Clear Spring's defense made several plays to back the no-hitter.

"You have to get those kinds of plays to get a no-hitter,'' Hutson said.

Gerad Haupt hit a solo home run and Regis Line had two hits and two RBI for the Blazers (13-6).
