G-A roundup: Blue Devils defeat Camp Hill in baseball

BASEBALL
Greencastle-Antrim 5, Camp Hill 2: Carter Reid stroked a two-run double to give the Blue Devils some wiggle room in the fifth inning, then came in for the final inning of pitching to earn a save in their non-league season opener Saturday morning.

“It was nice to get some butterflies again and compete in a game against somebody else,” G-A coach Eric Shaner said. “It was nice to get out, get a win and see some things we need to work on.”

The Blue Devils’ Logan Layton pitched the first six innings and had a strong outing, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out 11. Reid allowed one hit in the seventh.

Greencastle was held to just one run until the fifth, when it struck for four runs. Brady Diller and Austin Wyand each hit RBI singles, then Reid cracked his double to bring in two runs.

Layton was the next batter and he smoked a shot to right-center that Shaner thought would go for an inside-the-park home run.

“Their centerfielder came over and made a catch laying out about four feet above the ground,” Shaner said. “It’s the best catch I have ever seen.”
