Lakers Battle To A Pair Of Splits;

Down CatamountsWith Late Rally

Garrett earned a pair of

doubleheader splits in Mary-

land Junior College Athletic

Conference baseball action

against Westmoreland and

Cecil, before scoring a pair of

runs in each of its final two at-

bats to rally back and defeat

Potomac State, 5-4.

Garrett and theWestmore-

land Wolfpack combined

to score 43 runs as the two

teams split a marathon dou-

bleheader last Wednesday in

Youngwood, Pa.

The Lakers crossed the

plate for eight runs in the sev-

enth inning to break open a

tie game and take the opener,


Cutter Atha paced the 17-

hit Garrett attack by going 4

for 4 with three RBIs. Johnny

Kesling turned in a three-hit

performance with a double

and two singles, and Forrest

Spurlock drove in three runs

on a pair of singles. Mitch

Davis added a two-run single.

Jake Columbus and Tyler

Henry led Westmoreland

with two singles apiece, with

Columbus plating two runs

and Henry one.

In the nightcap, Westmo-

reland raced out of the gate

for eight runs in the first two

innings, and scored three

more in the sixth to hold on

for an 11-8 victory and earn

the split.

In a game that featured an

errorless fielding performance

by the two teams, the Lakers

outhit the Wolfpack, 15-11,

but could not recover from

Westmoreland’s quick start.

Giuseppe Schiano drove

in four runs on two hits to

lead the way for the Wolf-

pack, while Bobby Thompson

plated two runs on a triple

and a single.

For Garrett, Connor Ar-

cher went 3 for 4, as did

Dontae Eubanks, who added

a pair of RBIs. Spurlock

recorded two singles and an

RBI, and RyanMerante drove

in a run on a double.

The Lakers earned their

second doubleheader split

of the week in a pair of tight

games played with Cecil

Friday afternoon at the Hot

Stove Complex in Cumber-


Ryan Merante had two of

Garrett’s four hits and drove

in a run to lead the Lakers to

a 4-3 win in the first game.

With the contest tied at 1

apiece entering the sixth in-

ning, Cecil scored two runs

to take the 3-1 lead; however,

Garrett responded with three

runs in the bottom half of the

sixth to recapture the 1-run

advantage, which held up the

rest of the way.

Merante singled and dou-

bled, while Joey Johnson

doubled in a run.

Johnson also got the nod

on the hill for the Lakers. He

struck out three in 5 2/3 in-

nings, allowed seven hits and

three earned runs, and was

relieved by Steven Haer in

the sixth.

Haer came on to end the

Cecil rally in the sixth, shut-

ting down the Owls the rest

of the way to earn the win.

In the second game, Cecil

scored two runs in the top of

the ninth inning to avoid the

twinbill sweep by defeating

the Lakers, 5-3.

The Owls kept Garrett off

the scoreboard and held a

3-0 lead until the bottom of

the seventh, when the Lakers

crossed the plate three times

to tie the game and send it

into extra innings.

Johnson finished 3 for 5

with a double and an RBI,

and Merante and Davis each

had a pair of singles.

The Potomac State Cata-

mounts rolled into McHenry

on Monday and quickly took

a 3-0 first-inning advantage,

but the Lakers charged back

to score two runs in both the

seventh and eighth innings to

earn a 5-4 win.

Johnny Kesling cranked a

solo home run in the bottom

of the fourth to put the Lakers

on the board and make it 4-1.

Garrett crept back to with-

in a run, with two runs in the

seventh, and in the eighth the

Lakers took the lead for good

when Nakashima singled in

Davis for the winning run.

Davis finished 2 for 4 with

two singles, while Eubanks

tallied a pair of doubles and a

single. Archer added a double

and two singles for the Lak-

ers, who finished with 13 hits.

Ferrara tossed two in-

nings in relief to pick up the

win and up his record to 3-1.

Johnson pitched a perfect

ninth to earn the save, his

second of the season.

Garrett (14-12, 3-5 JUCO)

will travel to Hagerstown

Community College today

for a doubleheader begin-

ning at 2 p.m., and will host

CCAC South in a twinbill

on Friday, with the first pitch

slated for 3 p.m. The Lakers’
