FSK overcomes Funkstown, 10-9

June 11, 2003


FUNKSTOWN - Francis Scott Key finally went unanswered in the eighth inning Wednesday night to knock off Funkstown, 10-9.

FSK - which surrendered leads of 3-0, 7-3 and 9-8 - broke a 9-9 tie in the top of the eighth inning, scoring the winning run on a walk, two wild pitches and a two-out throwing error.

"We just had to catch up too many times," said Funkstown coach Darryl Powell. "It's easy to hit home runs in this park, it's just FSK came out on top."

Matt Tedrick went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI for Funkstown, while Matt Allen went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk and Drew Crawford homered and had three RBI.


Funkstown starter Ryan Wingerd pitched four innings, allowing eight hits, including FSK's three home runs. Cole Bellon then pitched two innings before being relieved by Josh Carter in the seventh. Carter struck out three, but allowed two runs on one hit for the loss.
