Baseball Sweeps Doubleheader From Pitt-Greensburg
04/12/2003

FROSTBURG, MD - Frostburg State (18-8-1, 7-3) dominated in a doubleheader sweep against visiting Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opponent Pitt-Greensburg 6-2 and 26-8. Sophomore Scott Feller (American Heritage/Coral Springs, Fla.) led the Bobcats hitting a solo-homerun in each of the two games. He also added two doubles and two singles as he went 6-7, driving in five and scoring five.

In the first game, the Bobcats fell behind early as in the second inning, UPG took a 1-0 lead scoring on two singles along with an error by starting pitcher, freshman Mike Tiller (Potomac/Dumfries, Va.). However, Tiller (1-3), remained strong as he has all year, and for the first time received some offensive support from his teammates to earn his first victory of his collegiate career.

The Bobcats took their first lead of the day in the third inning and would never trail again (even going through the second game of the doubleheader). With one out, juniors Sean Davis (Sherwood/Olney, Md.) and Taylor Dixon (Robinson/Fairfax, Va.) along with Feller hit back-to-back-to-back singles with Feller’s base-hit driving in Davis. Senior Jake Mannon (Lenape/Southampton, N.J.) followed that up with a bases clearing double giving the Bobcats a 3-1 lead.

The Bobcats would add on one run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings lead by Dixon’s fifth homerun of the season, a solo shot in the fifth and Feller’s fifth homerun of the season and first of two on the day. The 6-1 lead is all Tiller would need to close out the game as he pitched seven complete innings, giving up two runs on six hits, striking out six.

The second game seemed to be over before it began as sophomore Daryl Keys (Salem Central/Salem, N.Y.) set down Pitt-Greensburg in the first inning, allowing the bats to take over as the Bobcats scored eight runs in the first and eight more in the second. Keys was replaced after three and a third innings by freshman Jimmy Hardy (Middletown/Myersville, Md.) who got credit for the win as he went three and two-thirds innings allowing one run on six hits, striking out five.

Leading the way for the Bobcats in the second game was senior Mark Teson’s (Shaker/Latham, N.Y.) two triples and a walk in his three plate appearances, scoring three times and driving in two. Feller went 3-3 with two doubles and a homerun, scoring three and driving in three.

Junior Eric Edleman (Sherwood/Silver Spring, Md.) went 3-6, scoring four times and driving in one. Senior Bobby Farmer (Montgomery C.C./Rockville, Md.) went 2-2 with a triple, scoring twice and driving in two. Replacing Farmer in rightfield was freshman Tony Pina (Lansdowne/Baltimore, Md.) who saw his first action of the season and made an impression going 2-3, scoring twice and driving in one.

However the highlight of the day came when in the fifth inning, as junior Justin Wilt (Brunswick/Brunswick, Md.), who went 2-4 with three RBI and two runs scored, drove the ball over the head of the UPG centerfielder. The outfielder then proceeded to lose track of the ball allowing Wilt to round the bases for an inside-the-park-homerun. The homerun was Wilt’s first of his collegiate career and the fourth of the day for Bobcat hitters.

On the day the Bobcats had 14 extrabase hits out of their 38 total hits. Feller’s six hits improves his team-high batting average to .419 as he now leads the team in batting average, slugging percentage (.797), homeruns (6), doubles (10), runs scored (25), RBI (25), and total bases (59).

The Bobcats will next travel to Catholic University on Sunday April 13, 2003 to play a doubleheader beginning at noon.
