LOCAL ROUNDUP: Trojans get first win

MILFORD — Jon Snyder’s two-run homer in the fourth inning was the all the offense the Armstrong-Potomac Trojans needed to get their first victory in the prep baseball season.

Armstrong-Potomac, which had lost its first nine games, added an insurance run in the fifth as the Trojans defeated the Milford Bearcats 3-1 in a Vermilion Valley Conference baseball game.

Dentler Loschen, who drove home the run in the fifth, allowed just one run and four hits to get the victory for the Trojans.

Milford scored its only run in the third inning as Clayton Rieches drove home Jacob Henning.

Seeger 12

North Montgomery 7

WEST LEBANON, Ind. — Steven Schall went 2-for-3 with three runs scored as the Patriots defeated the Chargers in a non-conference contest.

Seeger, which improved to 6-1 overall, finished with 16 hits, including six doubles and a home run.

Jordan Stover had three of those hits, including the home run; while Zach Stitt and Josh Orahood each had three hits for the Patriots.

Stitt, Stover, Orahood and Steven Schall led Seeger with two RBIs each.

Caleb Orahood went the distance to get the victory for the Patriots.

Seeger returns to Wabash River Conference action today with a 4:30 p.m. (Eastern) contest at Fountain Central.


Armstrong-Potomac 5

Milford 4

MILFORD — Nine is enough for the Trojans.

Crawfordsville 13

Seeger 10

WEST LEBANON, Ind. — In a game that featured four lead changes, the Patriots came up short against the Lady Athenians.

Seeger (3-7) led 3-2 after the first inning and 9-7 after a six-run third, but a four-run seventh for Crawfordsville was just too much to overcome.
