kauffman@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Even if Waynesboro's baseball team wasn't mired "in one of those what they call an S-L-U-M-P," the No. 8 Indians still would have been hard-pressed to handle No. 1 Chambersburg on Friday afternoon. With Andrew Burke baffling Waynesboro with his assortment of breaking pitches and the potent Trojans lineup mashing 18 hits, Chambersburg made short work of the Indians, 11-0, in a Mid-Penn Commonwealth contest. "We're in one of those what they call an S-L-U-M-P and it's hard for us to dig out of it," said Waynesboro coach Greg Chandler after watching his team drop its fifth in seven games, including a 10-0 setback to Gettysburg on Wednesday.

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.

dans@herald-mail.com SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - The Neshaminy baseball team was the feelgood story of the Pa. Class AAA State Tournament. The Redskins were the 15th seed out of District 1, but fought their way to their first state appearance since 1992. But in Monday's first-round game at Shippensburg Memorial Park, playoff-savvy Chambersburg broke their hearts with their bats and their backs with their defense. The Trojans spotted the Redskins a two-run lead early, then turned on the jets in all phases of the game for an 8-3 victory and advance to Thursday's state quarterfinals against Williamsport.
