SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Shepherd University senior Nathan Minnich, a Waynesboro High School graduate, set two school records Sunday and hit a solo home run in the first game of the Rams’ West Virginia Conference doubleheader split with Pitt-Johnstown.

Minnich’s 66 RBIs this season eclipses the old record of 65 set by Dirk Webb in 2006, while his 141 total bases surpassed the old mark of 139 set by Brian Collins in 2009.

In a 14-12 win in the second game, Nash Hutter belted two homers and Shepherd scored eight runs on just three hits in the fourth inning to take a 12-5 lead. Hutter hit a two-run blast in the third and a grand slam in the fourth. Aaron Scoville added a two-run single. Minnich homered in the seventh and Chad Murphy hit an RBI single in the eighth.

Pitt-Johnstown earned a 12-7 win in the first game, which had been suspended on Saturday by rain. UPJ (24-25, 17-17) plated four runs in the third behind a two-run homer by Kyle Morrow and a two-run single by Nathan Pope to take a 7-1 lead.

Michael Lott and Brandon Coffey each had two hits and an RBI to lead the Rams (27-19, 19-12).

McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. — Gabby Danner pitched a complete game, allowing seven hits and two walks while striking out four to lead the Spartans (5-6), who capitalized on four unearned runs from five Blue Storm errors on Saturday.

Rain hits Hagerstown Speedway

The Steel Block Bandits 17th annual Richard “Boney” Bonebrake Tribute event scheduled for Saturday was postponed to June 9 when a late band of showers kept the program from being completed.

That night is Dukes Family Night, with a $5 general admission charge. The SBB series will then compete in a second feature paying $1,000 to win, while the Ernie D’s pure stocks and hobby stocks also will run.
