WINGATE — After Bellefontes Ethan White singled to right field with two outs in the seventh inning, Brandon Shuey motored from second base with his team down 7-5 and home plate on his mind.
However, Bald Eagle Areas Dylan Womer had other plans. The senior charged and fired a strike that caught Shuey at the plate, ending the game and giving the Eagles a 7-5 victory on Tuesday in varsity baseball action.
Instead, the Eagles improved to 6-1 on the season. Jon Romine (1-1) went the distance and gave up five runs on six hits and struck out six for the win.
It was good to get the win, said Gardner. Jon pitched a real nice game for us.
Bryan Greene (2-for-4) owned the only BEA bat with two hits. He and Womer (1-for-3) also led the team with two RBIs apiece.
Dan Roan (2-for-4, one RBI) paced the Red Raiders (2-2) at the plate. Andrew Stover went 1-for-4, scored twice and knocked in a run, while Tanner Day went 1-for-4 and also had an RBI.
