McDonough baseball shut out in SMAC final
McDonough loses SMAC baseball final to Vogtsberger, Huntingtown
Just three batters into his outing on Wednesday night, it had the appearance of a long night on the mound for Huntingtown pitcher Brandyn Vogtsberger. That was just an illusion. After facing a two-on, one-out situation in the bottom of the first inning of Wednesday night’s Southern Maryland Athletic Conference baseball championship game against the McDonough Rams, the Huntingtown hurler proceeded to set down 18 straight batters in his compete-game two-hit performance. By the time McDonough had another baserunner — that coming on an error with one out in the bottom of the seventh — any drama had already been eliminated, as the Hurricanes won the SMAC title 5-0 at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf.
“He was dominant,” Huntingtown head coach Guy Smith said of his ace. “He’s been a senior leader all year, so Brandyn stepped up to the plate. He had a little fire yesterday and was ready to go today.”
