FSHS's Meador Moves to 3-0
It took four days but West Fairmont’s baseball team finally made it back out on the diamond for a make-up game against East Fairmont.
Catching a rare break in the rainy weather the Bears took advantage of some earlier hits to shutout the Bees, 9-0, for their eighth win of the season.
“We haven’t played since Saturday and we were not able to practice yesterday because of school being let out early, so this was a game we had to get in,” West Fairmont coach Steve Naternicola said. “I was pleased with the way we played today. After we got nine runs the last two innings were all pinch hitters. We wanted to get some other kids an opportunity to get some at-bats and not try to run the score up on anyone.”
The Bears tagged East Fairmont starter Jason Blosser for nine runs on 12 hits over six innings.
After scoring two runs in the first inning, West put the game away with five more in the second.
Jay Carpenter and Tommy Alvaro, who earlier knocked in both runs with an RBI double, both had sacrifice flies to score runs for West Fairmont.
“We put some guys in there we have some confidence in and the seven through nine batters went 6-for-7 today,” Naternicola said. “We had seven different guys scoring runs, so we are not relying on one or two guys.”
The Bees couldn’t muster any offense against Nathan Meador, who picked up the win for the Bears.
Meador allowed only one hit over six innings, striking out six and walking three.
Carpenter pitched the seventh inning, walking one and striking out one without giving up any hits.
“That is all we can ask for from Nathan is to go out there and throw strikes,” Naternicola said. “We know Nathan is going to be around the plate and they (opposing batters) are going to be swinging, so we have to be ready in the field.”
Cory Mohr, Matt Middlemas, Stephen Tennant and Joseph Tatta led the Bears with two hits each, while Carpenter, Alvaro, Brent Dodrill and Meador all singled.
West stranded six runners and had two strike outs.
“I was pleased with not stranding so many,” Naternicola said. “We only stranded six and had two strikeouts so we are putting the ball in play. East is a young team and we don’t want to try and pour it on anyone.”
The Bears (8-0, 4-0 in the North Central Athletic Conference) will return to action today when they take on North Marion at Watson Field in a make-up game at 4:30 p.m.
