WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Cumberland Valley ace Ryan Loper certainly didn't seem to intimidate the Waynesboro baseball team.
Especially not Indians hurler Ryan Ditch.
Ditch pitched 3 1/3 innings of shutout relief and drove in the game's final runs with a two-run double off Loper in the bottom of the fifth inning, as Waynesboro came from behind to edge CV 6-5 in their Mid-Penn Commonwealth Division opener on Thursday.
Ditch picked up his first career varsity win, while Loper, last year's Commonwealth MVP, took the loss.
"Loper has all the credentials," said Waynesboro coach Greg Chandler. "We didn't just beat anybody."
The Indians (2-0, 1-0) jumped on Loper early, taking a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Phil Woodring led off with a bunt single and came home on a double by Mike Sanders. Sanders scored on a single from Justin Kauffman, who then scooted safely to the plate on a passed ball.
