Allegany pounds HCC

April 26, 2006


Tuesday was not a good day for the Hagerstown Community College pitching staff.

Credit the Allegany College offense for that.

The Trojans stroked 13 hits and got 11 bases on balls from Hawks pitchers on the way to a 19-3 trouncing of HCC in a Maryland JuCo Conference baseball game.

"They totally dominated us," HCC coach Scott Jennings said. "I expected a close game. They just came out ready to play today. The walks got us in trouble early. Anytime that you give up 13 hits and 11 walks, you are not going to win. Today was a total collapse by our pitching staff."

Shane Weldon (8-1) gave up only two earned runs in seven innings to get the win for Allegany (31-6, 22-2), which remains in first place in the conference.


"Shane Weldon got out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning and then he got it going," Allegany coach Steve Bazarnic said. "He was able to throw strikes and they didn't. That was the difference in the game."

Scott Hugney had three triples and five RBI, while Jeremy Potter had four hits and four RBI for Allegany.

"We hit the ball hard and we put the ball in play," Bazarnic added. "Almost everything that we hit fell in place. Hagerstown has a good ballclub. We just caught them on an off day."

Trevor Cobb used his speed to beat out two infield singles, while Matt Murray had two RBI for HCC (23-15, 12-8).
