Lancaster’s varsity Devils fell in back-to-back outings last week to Essex and Mathews to stand at 9-3 overall.

Essex scored two runs in the fourth and sixth innings last Tuesday to squeeze by the Devils, 4-2.

Lancaster had taken a 2-0 lead in the first quarter after Daniel Thomas led off with a hit and stole second. He moved to third off a sacrifice bunt by Demetrick Lee and scored off a sacrifice fly by Jordan Hodges. Kyle Thomas drew a walk, stole second and went to third on a passed ball to score off a hit by Josh Moore.

The Trojans tied the game at 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth, added another two in the sixth and got out of a sticky situation for the win in the top of the seventh when Lancaster left the bases loaded.

“We played a good game, but we couldn’t get the hits when we needed to,” said LHS coach Welby Saunders. “In fact, our hitting has really disappeared.”

Josh Moore suffered the loss on Tuesday, while Taylor Woolard was the losing pitcher Thursday in a 5-3 loss to Mathews.

Lancaster managed three runs in the fourth inning to take a 3-0 lead. The Devils scored off two walks, a hit and a sacrifice fly by K. Thomas.

Grant Long had two hits to lead the offense.

Lancaster hosts Northumberland tomorrow (May 2) and will go to Rappahannock next Tuesday, May 6.
