G-A roundup: Landon Huth twirls 4-hit shutout in baseball

“It’s a huge win,” G-A coach Eric Shaner said. “We saw that they had saved Tucker for us. I thought we had some good at-bats against him the first time (earlier this year, a 7-3 loss), and he wasn’t as sharp today. We had a few hits with two strikes, and when they made mistakes we made them pay.”

Huth (3-0) needed only 73 pitches to complete his shutout. He gave up four hits and one walk and struck out two.

Aidan Grudzinski was 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI for Greencastle (6-4, 4-4 MPC). Darren Kline was 2-for-3 with a run batted in and Austin Wyant was 2-for-2 with a walk.

Also, Briggs Remenick had a hit, two walks and scored twice, Carter Reid had a hit and an RBI and Ethan Ford knocked in a run.

Shaner said, “We’re 3-1 in our last four games and are playing some really good baseball. It’d be nice to go on a bit of a streak here.”

Shippensburg is 6-3.

Shippensburg 6, Greencastle-Antrim 3: The Blue Devils held a 3-0 lead until the bottom of the sixth inning, but the Greyhounds put together a six-run rally to claim a Mid Penn Colonial victory on Wednesday afternoon in Shippensburg.

Greencastle (8-2, 6-2 MPC) scored in the top of the first off Riley Mullen and then produced two unearned runs in the third to take a 3-0 lead.

Caroline Logsdon was 2-for-3 with a pair of runs batted in, and Makayla Jerin drove in a run with a base hit. Mullen went all 7 innings, allowed 6 hits, walking none and striking out 4.

Sophie Layton pitched well for the Blue Devils with a shutout through five innings. She gave up only one hit and two walks.

“She was on an inning count because she had some soreness in her shoulder,” G-A coach Mark DeCarli said. “In the sixth we talked about it and she was tired. Ship started to come alive and we couldn’t stop their rally.”

Laney Gilbert, Cierra Bender, Katara Smith, Mullen, Morgan Caldwell and Alexis Kitner each drove in a run in the sixth for the Lady Hounds (6-3).
