LIONS

Record Observer - - Sports -

Mar­vel pitched 2 1-3 in­nings of score­less mid­dle re­lief, al­low­ing one hit and one walk, and Matt Robin­son tossed the fi­nal frame al­low­ing only a walk.

Trey Pin­der walked off Easton starter Bran­don Latham to be­gin the Lions’ of­fense in the home first. Pin­der ad­vanced to third on a pair of ground outs and scored on a base­hit to left by Rovenolt.

“He [Rovonolt] had a homer against Kent Is­land last week, a solo shot,” Fitzger­ald said. “He’s been see­ing the ball well for us. Got him ac­tu­ally moved up in the four hole right now and he’s taken to it kindly, that’s for sure.”

Porter re­tired the War­riors in or­der in the top of the sec­ond be­fore the Lions took the lead in the bottom half.

Rose­brock dou­bled off a sign on the left-field fence to open Queen Anne’s sec­ond. He took third on a passed ball and scored on a base­hit to right by Klep­per. Klep­per reached sec­ond on an out­field er­ror and took third on a wild pitch. Kole Gun­ther fol­lowed with a walk. Mar­vel then lined an RBI sin­gle up the mid­dle and Pin­der fol­lowed with a sac­ri­fice fly to cen­ter for a 4-1 lead.

Porter al­lowed a two-out hit in the third but fanned Easton’s next bat­ter, and then the Lions scored five runs in the bottom half to fin­ish the game’s scor­ing.

Rovenolt got Queen Anne’s third go­ing with a lead­off-sin­gle up the mid­dle. Pat Free­man sin­gled to right and Rose­brock grounded an RBI hit up the mid­dle. Free­man took third on a wild pitch and scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Klep­per. With Kee­gan Bentz now on the mound for Easton, Gun­ther drove in a run with a liner

up the mid­dle. Mar­vel fol­lowed with a deep-fly dou­ble to left for an 8-1 lead. Mar­vel later scored on a two-out sin­gle by Luke Wed­dell to end the scor­ing.

Latham al­lowed seven runs on seven hits and two walks in 2 1-3 in­nings. Bentz worked 3 2-3 in­nings of re­lief, al­low­ing one earned run, four hits, and a walk.

The War­riors (3-3, 2-1) fin­ished with four hits, all in dif­fer­ent in­nings. Ryan Farr sin­gled and Lo­gan Bail­lif walked with one out in the sixth, but Mar­vel got a strike­out and a pop out to leave them stranded.

“Queen Anne’s hit the ball. They threw strikes. We fielded the ball well. I think Queen Anne’s just out-hit us to­day, sim­ple as that,” War­riors head coach Al­bert Pritch­ett said. “We’ve got (Stephen) De­catur to­mor­row so we’re hop­ing for another op­por­tu­nity to­mor­row.” Fol­low me on Twit­ter @csknauss / email me at ck­nauss@star­dem.com
