After being involved in a pair of one-run ball games on Friday, the Bel Air and C. Milton Wright baseball teams unloaded in their Monday matchup, with the Bobcats taking an 18-10 victory over host CMW.
"We got shellacked pretty good," Mustangs head coach Joe Stetka said after the loss. "We made some mistakes we shouldn't have, but Bel Air played really well. They had 19 hits on us. We had 13 hits, which should be plenty normally, but not today."
Bel Air hurler Tyler Norcross made the start and worked through five innings to earn the win. Ben Webber closed the game for Bel Air with two innings of relief.
The Bobcats' Matt Wallace was 3-for-5 in the victory, while Norcross ripped a triple at the plate. Sam Foss went 2-for-4, and fellow Bobcat Mike Marshall belted a triple.
CMW's Bryce Schultz was 3-for-5 with a double, while teammate Ricky Scheeler rapped out a triple in the loss. The Mustangs' Colin Miller went 2-for-5 with a solo home run.
Bel Air improved to 4-3 overall, and 2-0 against Chesapeake (upper) Division teams, while the loss dropped CMW to 2-2 overall, and 1-2 in Chesapeake competition.
Patterson Mill falls
The Patterson Mill Huskies (4-1 overall, 0-1 Chesapeake) suffered a 7-4 road defeat to the North East Indians Monday.
JT Tipton led the Huskies' offense, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a triple and a walk, while Griffin Marge was 1-for-3 with a homer in the loss. Patterson Mill's Alex Peters was 1-for-3 with one RBI.
Taking the loss was Patterson Mill starter James Andrew, who struck out one and surrendered three earned runs on nine hits over four innings of work. Kyle Hilker tossed two innings of relief for the Huskies, holding the Indians to one unearned run on one hit, striking out one and allowing two walks.
North Harford pitcher Scott Angstadt allowed just one unearned run in a complete-game effort on Monday, but that was not enough for the Hawks to win, as they were topped, 1-0, by host Perry Hall.
Over six innings, Angstadt held Perry Hall to five hits. The hosts' lone run was scored in the bottom of the fifth on a North Harford error. The Hawks fell to 5-2 with the loss.
Rams trump Perryville
With the help of an eight-run rally in the bottom of the second inning on Monday, the Edgewood Rams were able to come away from their home field with a 13-8 victory over Perryville.
Edgewood starter Jose Figueroa earned the win, holding off the Perryville lineup until he was relieved in the seventh by Nick Logue.
Trey Hathaway belted a double in the victory, while teammate Omighty Verdejo smacked a double for the Rams (2-4 overall, 2-2 Susquehanna).
Tech over Joppa
Harford Tech (3-2 overall, 3-2 Susquehanna) took an 8-0 victory over Joppatowne (0-3 overall, 0-3 Susquehanna) at Harford Community College on Monday.
Tech starter Noah Davis went two innings, allowing two hits and striking out four. Tyler Mister tossed three innings of relief for the Cobras, also recording four strikeouts, while Owen Rogers closed out the contest with a two-inning relief sting, holding Joppatowne hitless and striking out three along the way.
