Chambersburg roundup: Baseball bats stay hot in win over Hamburg

Kyle Nolan

Chambersburg 11, Hamburg 1: The Trojans scored 11 runs for the second straight non-league game, putting up five runs each in the second and fourth innings, to hand the Hawks a defeat Thursday afternoon on the road.

Tegan Kuhns pitched all five innings to earn the win. He gave up only one hit and three walks, while striking out nine. Kuhns walked three batters in the first, but got out of it with only one run scoring.

Dru Bowling, Carter Fogal, Wyatt Kissel and Kyle Nolan each came up with two hits for Chambersburg (5-7), and Fogal and Kissel each drove in two runs.

In the second inning, Greg Cunha led off with a single, then the Hawks secured two outs. But Hunter Stevens walked and Bowling’s single brought in pinch runner Brandon Pattillo. Fogal doubled to left to score two runs, and he ran home on Kissel’s base hit.

In the fourth, Kissel and Kuhns walked, and both scored when a fly ball by Bryce Folmar was misplayed. Another error was made on a fly ball by Cunha, then Brandon Zeger hit a sacrifice fly to make it 9-1. Nolan singled in a run and then he raced home on a triple to centerfield by Stevens.

Ashli Ganoe

Chambersburg 18, Altoona 0: Every Trojan starter had a hit and all but one had a run batted in in a rout of the Mountain Lions on Thursday afternoon in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game at Altoona.

Chambersburg (12-0, 8-0 MPC) led 3-0 after two innings, then struck for 15 runs in the top of the third, sending 20 batters to the plate.

Alyssa Brechbill slugged a 3-run home run in the third inning and Hannah Runk hit a two-run shot in the top of the first, her fourth homer of the season.

“I was a little worried after the (five-day) layoff and the two-hour bus ride, but we got it rolling in the third and put it away rather easily,” Trojan coach Chris Skultety said. “The girls continue to hit and Kylee (Miller) continues to dominate. This was good practice today for the upcoming tough week — we play five big games in seven days starting Saturday (makeup home game vs. Central Dauphin at 11:00.”

Miller pitched two perfect innings with 5 strikeouts, and Saleen Null pitched one inning with a walk and a strikeout, combining for a 3-inning no-hitter.

Brechbill compiled 2 hits and 3 RBIs, Runk, Abagail Newman, Samantha Paetow, Kenzie Boyd, Karley Skultety and Ashli Ganoe each picked up 2 runs batted in. Ganoe hit a 2-run double in the big third inning.

Ridglee Flohr

Chambersburg 11, Northern York 9: The Trojans snapped a six-game losing skid by outscoring the Polar Bears on Thursday night at Trojan Stadium in a non-league affair.

“We put up a good fight and came out on top,” Chambersburg coach Keara Allshouse said. “Even when we got down by one goal, we kept fighting.”

The Trojans got an outstanding game on attack from Ridglee Flohr, who tallied eight goals, the most by three of any player in a game this year.

Also for Chambersburg, Hannah Woolf notched two goals and two assists, and Gabriella Sabatino netted one goal. Ellisa Gamby-Mickey also recorded the 100th groundball of her career.


Garrett Iser

Northern York 11, Chambersburg 10: Carson Forrester won 19 of 23 faceoffs for the Trojans, but the extra possessions did not translate into a victory Thursday in a non-league contest against the Polar Bears.

“I got out-coached, plain and simple,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said. “(Northern) game-planned and did something totally different than what they’ve done all year. They also locked off Dom Marangoni and we were not prepared for that at all. We were terrible on offense and defense.”

For the Trojans (4-8), goal scorers included Shea Makosy (3), Garrett Iser (2), Chase Martin (2), and Sam Kunkleman, Riley Harmon and Jackson Beardsley with one goal each.

Assists went to Kunkleman (2), Marangoni (2), Logan Mulkey (2)  and Harmon (1).
