Pitching keeps Trojans unbeaten

April 15, 2002


CARLISLE, Pa. - Aaron Burke struck out eight and walked two in a three-hitter as No. 1 Chambersburg hit the halfway point of the Mid Penn Commonwealth undefeated after a 4-0 victory over Carlisle on Friday afternoon.

Burke, R.J. Seibert and Chip Brown all had two hits for the Trojans (8-0, 6-0), but the story was Burke and his second shutout in the last eight days. Chambersburg, which lost its two main starters from last season, has found more than capable replacements on their way to another strong start.

"The kids have been pitching real well," Chambersburg coach Bob Thomas said. "We're doing well. We don't have any complaints."

DILLSBURG, Pa. - Dave Izer went 3-for-3, but the Blue Devils were handed their first loss of the season in the Mid Penn Colonial.


"You go through the book and look at the hits and everything and it's almost the same," Greencastle coach Chris Sellers said. "But in high school ball, you want to stay away from the big inning, and we couldn't quite do that today."

Greencastle (8-1, 6-1) got a run in the first inning, but the Polar Bears scored the next 10 to put the game away.

In Game 2, Berkeley Springs committed four errors, and Logan got four hits to blow the game open. Sirbaugh had two of the team's three hits in the game. Berkeley Springs plays Richmond this morning in its final pool game; a win will put it into the quarterfinals of the tournament.
