Allegany routs Berkeley Springs in opener; Keyser wins thriller

Mar. 22—BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Caedon Wallace belted three home runs and drove in nine runs, and Allegany rolled to a 23-0 bludgeoning of Berkeley Springs on Thursday in its opener.

The Campers finished with 13 hits compared to just one for the Indians. In addition to Wallace's three homers, Bryce Madden, Caden Long and Kohen Madden doubled.

Kohen Madden matched Wallace with a three-hit day, and Myles Bascelli went 2 for 3 with three RBIs and three runs scored.

Bascelli retired all six of the hitters he faced in order with five strikeouts to start, and Landyn Ansel, Long and Eli Imes pitched a scoreless inning each in the five-inning run-rule rout.

Landen Schetrompf took the loss for the Indians on the mound, and Kyle Moore singled for Berkeley Springs' lone baserunner.

Allegany hosts Northern on Saturday at noon.

Keyser 9 Spring Mills 8

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A two-out error on a Chase Davis ground ball gave Keyser the lead in the seventh, and Evan Jenkins struck out the side in the bottom half to give the Golden Tornado a thrilling win Wednesday.

Keyser (2-1) — which dropped its opener to Hampshire, 3-1, before bounding back with a 12-2 rout of Petersburg over the weekend — led Spring Mills, 5-2, before the Cardinals plated sixth in the fifth to take the lead.

After back-to-back strikeouts started the Keyser top half of the sixth, the Tornado tied the score. Davis plated a pair with a single, and Hunter Harr drove in one a batter later for an 8-all tie.

Noah Broadwater homered and scored three times, Harr was 2 for 5, Patrick Liller ended 2 for 4 with a double, and Logan Rotruck tripled.

Jenkins picked up the win, tossing three innings of one-hit shutout ball with seven strikeouts and two walks.

Keyser is at Grafton on Saturday at noon.
