Williamsport sweeps in legion baseball return

June 02, 2008


THURMONT, Md. -- Williamsport made a triumphant return to Western Maryland District American Legion baseball Sunday as the Nationals swept a doubleheader against Thurmont, 8-1 and 17-1.

Williamsport had not fielded a senior legion baseball team since Post 202 elected to halt its program following the 2003 season. Nationals coach Duane Myers continued Williamsport's junior program, which blossomed into the team which took the field Sunday.

In the first game, Adam Chambers and Chris Selby each had a home run among their two hits and drove in two runs each. Eli Beard had four hits and Travis Sluger added three, while Jake Pendergraft struck out nine to earn the win.

In the nightcap, A.J. Jamison had three hits and four RBIs, while Jared Ferguson had three hits and Pendergraft homered.

Aaron Dixon and John Shobe combined to throw a two-hitter for the Nationals (2-0, 2-0).

Berkeley 13-11, Urbana 3-0

URBANA, Md. -- Matt Stewart had three hits and four RBIs as Berkeley Post 14 opened its season with a doubleheader sweep of Urbana.


Mo Adams added two hits and two RBIs for Berkeley in the first game, while Tylor McCain had two hits and three stolen bases.

Zach Stolipher struck out out nine to lead Berkeley (2-0) in the nightcap. McCain, Mike Twigg, Ryan Larose and Ryan Bennett added two hits each.



LAKE GENEVA, Wis. -- Hagerstown's Ashley Grier shot a 3-over-par 75 in the final round of the Aurora Health Care Championship.

Grier finished in a tie for 60th place out of 75 at 12-over 228, good for a $603 paycheck.
