The Chambersburg pitchers allowed only 6 hits, but Susquehannock, leading 2-0, added two runs in the bottom of the sixth, which was the margin of victory after the Trojans scored their only 2 runs in the top of the seventh.

In the seventh, Chambersburg got a leadoff double to left by Trevor Holden. After an out, Carter Fogal walked and a flyout made it two outs. A passed ball moved both runners up, then Wyatt Kissel walked to load the bases.

Brandon Pattillo hit a ground ball that Susquehannock made an error on, and one run scored. Jason Cunha then drew a walk on a 3-2 pitch to force in the second run. But the next batter struck out looking to end the game.

Chambersburg coach Scott Folmar said, “We didn’t take enough good at-bats until the seventh inning. We need to be more consistent at the plate throughout the game. And we need to play more clean defensively (3 errors).”

Pattillo, Holden, Jake Folmar and Chase Stenger had the hits for the Trojans.

On the mound, Cole Yeager had an excellent start for Chambersburg, pitching 3 innings of one-hit ball and striking out five. Camden Helman also pitched a clean inning in relief.

“Cole did a fantastic job in his first start,” Folmar said. “All of our relievers did their job when they came in the game.”
