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.”
