Indians Baseball stuns Hancock for first win of the season

by Jamie Harris

Last Thursday, April 4, the Berkeley Springs Indians baseball team traveled to Hancock, Md., for a game against the Hancock Panthers. Back on March 21 the Panthers had shut out the Indians 9-0 at Morgan Field. The Indians headed into the game looking for a little pay- back.

It looked like the Panthers would run away with the game once again as they jumped out to a 5-2 lead after the first five innings. Going into the top of the seventh inning the Tribe bats woke up and the Indians scored four runs to stun Hancock 6-5 for their first win of the season.

Berkeley Springs was led by Eric Penner (single, double and run), Kyle Moore (single, double, run and 2 RBI’ s), Isaiah Hutchinson (single and run), Landen Schetrompf (run), Devon Faith (double and 2 RBI’ s), Kyle Rankin (run), Landon Peck (single and RBI) and Scott Payne (run).

Kyle Rankin got the win on the mound going six innings while Isaiah Hutchinson earned the save in the Indians win.

On Saturday, April 6 the Indians traveled to Grafton for a long road game. The Bearcats took advantage of the road weary Tribe and rolled to the 13-3 win.

Berkeley Springs was led by Ben Akers (2 singles and 2 runs) Isaiah Hutchinson (2 single and RBI), Kyle Moore (single and RBI), Landon Peck (single) and Landen Schetrompf (run).

Berkeley Springs (1-11) will host Hedgesville on Wednesday, April 10 at 6 p.m. On Thursday, April 11 the Indians will host the Hampshire Trojans at 7 p.m. On Friday, April 12 the Indians will travel to East Fairmont for a 5:30 p.m. contest.
