koelble@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - It makes no difference if he's holding aluminum, titanium or graphite. Andrew Burke can hit a white ball. Add to that fact that he can throw the baseball from the mound and he becomes a double-threat for a Chambersburg baseball team that hopes to win a PIAA state championship for the second straight year. The Chambersburg senior has excelled in baseball and golf for the Trojans throughout his scholastic career and has come to the forefront with an outstanding senior season.

kauffman@herald-mail.com GREENCASTLE, Pa. - Chambersburg's baseball team took full advantage of the mostly cozy dimensions of Barkdoll Field and pounded Greencastle senseless. Drew McGwin hit two of the No. 2 Trojans' four home runs - including one of two grand slams - and finished with six RBI as Chambersburg turned what looked like a possible showcase game with the No. 6 Blue Devils into a laugher, rolling to a 15-1 victory Saturday afternoon. Kyle Davis hit the other grand slam and Irvin Sleighter hit a tape-measure shot for the Trojans (6-2)

HERSHEY, Pa. - If Chambersburg senior Irvin Sleighter doesn't beat a team with his arm, he can just as easily do it with his bat.Monday, he pummeled Hempfield from every direction as the Trojans knocked off the Black Knights 4-1 in the PIAA Class AAA baseball state semifinals. Sleighter (11-0) scattered six hits over seven innings while striking out 11 and walking one. He also had two hits and three RBI.

kauffman@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - No. 3 Chambersburg scored five first-inning runs with help from three Central Dauphin East errors, and Trojans ace Andrew Burke allowed four hits and struck out seven in a five-inning complete game as the Trojans earned a 10-1 Mid-Penn Commonwealth victory in a rain-shortened game Friday at soggy Henninger Field. Burke (5-0) allowed a first-inning run, but settled down after that to enjoy a stress-free outing thanks to Chambersburg's offense.

andrewm@herald-mail.com The Peters Township Indians have averaged more than nine runs per game this baseball season, slugging their way to Friday's PIAA Class AAA state final against the Chambersburg Trojans. The Indians (17-7) have scored 27 runs in three state playoff games. They beat Kiski Area 10-2 in the semifinals. But they have yet to face senior right-hander Irvin Sleighter, who will take his 11-0 record, 0.48 ERA and single-season, school-record 107 strikeouts to the hill for Chambersburg (24-4)

andrewm@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Stocky right-hander Kevin Hellam couldn't keep his baseball jersey tucked into his trousers to save his life. But compared to Chambersburg's infield play, Mechanicsburg's 6-foot-2, 293-pound starting pitcher appeared pretty sharp Tuesday evening at Henninger Field. "It was terrible," Chambersburg shortstop Cody Stinger said. "It was just a lack of focus, and we made a lot of dumb decisions. We came out expecting to beat these guys.

koelble@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Opposing teams would just as soon see Andrew Burke stay in left field. Then, he'd only have the opportunity to beat them with his bat. When he takes the mound, it becomes double trouble and Monday night he took center stage on Senior Night with his bat and arm, leading No. 2 Chambersburg to an 8-1 victory over No. 7 Waynesboro. Admittedly without his best stuff, Burke squirmed out of jams twice and scattered five hits over six innings while striking out seven before his pitch count reached 120. At the plate, Burke slammed a Corey Livengood offering deep into the left-center-field pastures for a two-run homer, his fifth of the year and all he needed.

andrewm@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Most local sports fans probably would have given Waynesboro's Brian Lisko about the same chance of winning a pitching matchup against Chambersburg's Irv Sleighter as Sleighter's of winning a wrestling match versus Lisko. Lisko, a two-time Herald-Mail All-Area First Team wrestler, nearly defied the odds against Sleighter, last year's All-Area Baseball Player of the Year, in a Mid-Penn Commonwealth game at Henninger Field on Friday.

HARRISBURG, Pa. - The Chambersburg Trojans have had their share of stars on the baseball diamond over the years. Irvin Sleighter certainly will be remembered as one of the brightest. Sleighter ended his high school career Friday with school records in career pitching wins (32), wins in a season (12) and single-season strikeouts (116). Most importanly, though, he finished as a state champion. Sleighter (12-0) pitched a complete-game five-hitter with nine strikeouts and went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI as Chambersburg beat Peters Township 12-5 in the PIAA Class AAA state championship game at Commerce Bank Park.
