Mounts handle Tornado, forge ahead of Mules
Section Two is turning into a two-team race for the title between Ephrata and Solanco.
With just six baseball games remaining, the Mounts hold a slight half-game lead over the Mules heading into Friday’s showdown between the two teams at War Memorial (7 p.m.).
Tuesday night, the Mounts forged ahead of the idle Mules with a 10-5 victory at McCaskey (stats were unavailable at presstime). With the win, Ephrata now owns an 8-2 record in Section Two and is 10-4 overall. Solanco, which faces Section One leader Hempfield Thursday afternoon in Landisville, is currently 7-2 in section play (9-2 overall) with one of its two losses coming in a 14-3 verdict to Ephrata in Quarryville back on April 2.
This past week, Ephrata split a pair of games against the top two teams in Section One.
Last Wednesday at defending L-L champion Cedar Crest, the Mounts broke a 3-3 tie with three runs in the top of the ninth. The Falcons countered with two in the bottom half but Ephrata held on for the 6-5 victory.
Jeremy Franck pitched four innings of scoreless relief to earn the win on the mound for Ephrata. Andre Hoover and Parke Martin had two hits each to pace the Mounts offensively.
This past Friday, Ephrata was blanked 8-0 at home by visiting Hempfield as pitcher Derek Totaro limited the Mounts to just two hits with a nine strikeout, zero walk performance.
Hoover struck out four and walked six in taking the loss on the mound for Ephrata.
As for Cocalico, the Eagles had a good week, going 2-1 to improve to 3-7 in league play (3-10 overall).
Tuesday evening at Manheim Township, the eagles pounded out 15 hits in scoring 11 runs over the final three frames to earn a wild 12-9 victory.
Winning pitcher Adam Marshall, who struck out eight in six innings of work, helped his own cause with a home run.
The Eagles also earned an 8-7 victory over host McCaskey last Wednesday night. Cocalico led 6-1 before holding off a late Tornado rally to earn the victory. Marshall picked up the win in relief of starter Nate Baxter.
The Eagles were on the wrong end of a 20-4 decision Friday at home vs. Penn Manor.
The visiting Comets led 2-1 in the third before scoring a whopping 18 runs in the inning to key the victory.
The Eagles host Warwick Wednesday afternoon in Denver, beginning at 4:15 p.m. Ephrata also will be in action at home vs. Penn Manor (7 p.m.). More BASEBALL, page B-2
