“Today was a great way for this group to end the season,” Trojan coach Scott Folmar said. “We put a complete game together.”

The Trojans got a seven-inning shutout from pitcher Bryce Folmar, who gave up six hits and a walk while striking out two, and raised his record to 3-2.

Scott Folmar said, “We got a very solid pitching performance from Bryce and we did a nice job at the plate. We hit the ball well, got down a bunt later in the game in a crucial situation (by Jaile Cabrera-Reyes), and took advantage of some mistakes they made.”

Carter Fogal led the team by going 4-for-5 with two RBIs, Greg Cunha belted a two-run home run and Dru Bowling and Joey Maun each had two hits. Bowling doubled and knocked in three runs.

The Trojans scored one run in the second, another in the fourth and two in the sixth to lead 4-0. Then came came a nine-run explosion in the top of the seventh.

Cunha blasted his home run after Evan Wagaman walked and later had a bases-loaded walk. Fogal, Gavin Kissel and Bowling all drove in runs with base hits.

Chambersburg finishes its season with a 7-13 record, including 2-12 in the Mid Penn Commonwealth.
