Baseball sweeps

Harford swept a double header at Montgomery College Saturday. The Fighting Owls won game one, 5-1, and then rolled in game two, 14-4, in five innings.

Harford starter Braedon Fausnaught held Montgomery to just one run on one hit in the opener.

Fausnaught (7 IP, 1 ER) relied on the Harford defense to secure 16 of the game's 21 outs. He faced the minimum amount of batters in three innings and struck out five in his longest outing of the year.

Nolan Charlton kicked off the scoring in the fourth, crushing a pitch over the center field wall for a 1-0 Harford lead. Reyce Curnane doubled that in the fifth with an RBI-single and Spencer Smith made it 4-0 with a two-run blast to dead center, also in the fifth. A throwing error plated Smith again in the final inning.

In game two, the Fighting Owls sent 11 batters to the plate in the first, led off by Curnane's solo home run to right field. Matthew Shilling joined him just two batters later, slamming a pitch the opposite direction to double Harford's lead. Seven additional hits and two Montgomery errors later, and the Raptors were staring down the barrel of an 8-0 deficit courtesy of the Harford offense.

Harford tacked on an additional six runs over the next three innings, highlighted by Curnane's third extra-base hit and a three-RBI homer by Nehemiah Wright. Montgomery nearly extended the game in the fourth, but relievers Mitch Hoon and Blake Johnson secured the Harford win by holding the Raptors hitless for the final four outs of the game.
