A run clear

Rams go nine to de­feat Hur­ri­canes

Maryland Independent - - Sports B - ANDY STATES as­tates@somd­news.com

Just four outs from wrap­ping up a shutout win over the vis­it­ing Hunt­ing­town Hur­ri­canes on Tues­day af­ter­noon, the McDonough Rams ap­peared to play the role of the hos­pitable hosts when they made a pair of throw­ing er­rors on the same play to al­low their guests to tie the score in the sixth in­ning.

Gen­er­ous as that was, the Rams were not in the mood to be too gen­er­ous. While it took some more in­nings, the hosts even­tu­ally won on Jonathan Fisher’s two-out, walk-off sin­gle in the bot­tom of the ninth in­ning to nab a 2-1 South­ern Mary­land Ath­letic Con­fer­ence non­di­vi­sion win.

“I was just look­ing for some­thing to make con­tact with,” Fisher said of his game-win­ning knock, which scored Pey­ton My­ers from sec­ond base. “I went up there with one mind­set and that was to score the run.”

For the first five-plus in­nings it did not ap­pear any late-game hero­ics would be nec­es­sary. Locked in a pitcher’s duel be­tween McDonough’s David Lar­son and Hunt­ing­town’s Bran­dyn Vogts­berger, McDonough (3-2 over­all af­ter an 11-6 loss to Leonard­town on Wed­nes­day) picked up a run on Lar­son’s
