Rebels earn rare win vs. rival Hubs

May 03, 2003|by JACK HILL III

The South Hagerstown Rebels turned solid pitching and timely hitting into their second victory of the season, made all the better coming against the rival North Hagerstown Hubs 5-3 on Friday at South.

"We hit the ball a little bit better than we have been," Rebels coach Sabrina McCoy said. "We got the clutch hits when we needed them."

Sophomore pitcher Jamie Fowler earned the complete-game win for South (2-15, 2-15 Monocacy Valley Athletic League) as she struck out 11 and gave up only two earned runs on six hits.

"Jamie Fowler seemed to get a lot stronger as the game went along," McCoy said. "She looked real smooth out there near the end."

South erased an early 1-0 deficit to North (2-17, 1-16) with two runs in the second, loading the bases on two singles and a walk. Christine Lohr was hit by a pitch to force home a run and Fowler walked to force home another.

The Rebels added a run in the third. Ashley Higgs reached on an infield error and advanced two bases on two wild pitches and later scored on an infield error.

The Rebels got their final two runs in the fourth. Fowler led off with a triple to the left field corner. Both Christina Line and Higgs walked to load the bases, before Atkinson delivered a two-run single to center.

The Hubs got a run in the first on an RBI single by Sara Austin. North added a run in the sixth on a solo homer to left by Chrissy Ennis, and got its final run in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Sierra Routzahn.
