Lancaster dropped its first game of the season last week, but picked up a win over Rappahannock to improve to 7-1 overall in varsity baseball. 

+ A | - A

Colonial Beach got by the Devils, 2-1, last Wednesday for Lancaster’s first loss of the season. The Devils rebounded to rout the Raiders, 10-1, last Friday to put them even at 1-1 in conference play. 

Josh Moore pitched a one-hitter, struck out four and walked only one in the win against Rappahannock. The Raiders averted the 10-run, five-inning slaughter by scoring their only run in the top of the fifth off a walk, sacrifice bunt and two stolen bases. 

Lancaster had taken a 4-0 lead in the first inning after Demetrick Lee drew a lead-off walk. Daniel Thomas and Jordan Hodges laid down back-to-back bunts to load the bases for a three-run double to centerfield by Moore. The Devils drew two more walks to load the bases again followed by Taylor Woolard’s RBI single that scored Moore. 

Moore led off with a double to the right field fence in the third and Grant Long reached base on balls to put two on base. Moore scored on a passed ball and Woolard drove in Long with a single. 

Lancaster capped its scoring with a four-run rally in the fourth when Kyle Thomas smacked a base-clearing triple down the right field line to score three runs. Moore sent Thomas home from third with an RBI double. 

Moore led Lancaster’s batters, going 3-for-4 with three doubles for four RBIs and two runs scored. Hodges was also 3-for-4 with two runs and K. Thomas was 1-for-4 with three RBIs. Woolard went 2-for-2 with two RBIs. 

Woolard went all seven innings on the mound against the Drifters last Wednesday, striking out 13, walking three and giving up five hits. 

Colonial Beach scored both of its runs in the first inning. 

Lancaster, which left seven runners on base in the outing, stranded runners on second and third in three innings. 

Jay Bryant scored the Devils’ only run after hitting a one-out double in the fifth and coming home on a two-out double by Daniel Thomas. 

The Devils will head to the Eastern Shore today (April 17) to play Nandua and will visit Essex Tuesday, April 22, for a conference game.
