SOUTH PENN LEAGUE
Cashtown 8, New Oxford 5
Zach Ketterman pounded a third-inning home run and scored four times and Robert Rohrbaugh was a perfect 3-for-3 as Cashtown knocked off the South Penn League’s top seed New Oxford on Tuesday.
Ketterman’s two-run shot off of Mitch Collins put the Pirates up 3-2 in the third inning, countering a solo shot by New Oxford’s Dan Shafer in the top of the inning.
A Ryan Reinert sacrifice fly and a Alex DeHaas Double increased the lead to 5-2 in the fifth, and Cashtown put it out of reach in the sixth with a three-run rally in the sixth. Chase King doubled home a run, and Rohrbaugh and Reinert singled home one apiece.
New Oxford put an end to a strong performance by Hunter Rang with a three-run rally in the top of the seventh. Brady Topper’s two-run single was the last offensive strike for the Twins. Rang earned the victory, throwing six innings while allowing six hits, five walks and four runs. He also earned one punch out. Ketterman struck out two in relief, but allowed two hits and a walk in the final inning.
Collins took the loss, allowing three earned runs before being relieved by Matt Martin and Larry Baumgardner, who were also ineffective.
