The Devils were scheduled to play their season finale at Northumberland on Tuesday (May 20) and will host the Conference #43 tournament next week. The Indians are in first place in the conference and Rappahannock is second.

Josh Moore pitched five-and-a-third innings with two walks, four strikeouts and three hits allowed to pick up the 11-3 win over the Drifters last Tuesday. Brandon Self closed, going one and two-thirds innings with one walk, one strikeout and one hit allowed.

Lancaster spread out its runs with one in the first and third and two in the second, fourth and fifth. They rallied for three runs in the sixth.

“But we are still struggling to get that big hit,” said LHS coach Welby Saunders. “And leaving a bunch of runners on base.”

Self batted 3-for-4 with four runs scored and two RBIs to lead Lancaster’s offense. Daniel Thomas went 3-for-3 with two runs and two RBIs and his brother, Kyle, was 3-for-4 with a single, double and triple for an RBI.

Jordan Hodges was 1-for-1 but had two sacrifice flies for three RBIs, and Jonathan Seal also went 1-for-1 with a double for an RBI.

Taylor Woolard put in five innings of work on the mound and Self went two to close in Lancaster’s 10-4 win over the Eagles.

Woolard walked one, retired three and gave up five hits while Self walked two and allowed one hit.

The Devils scored two on several walks and no base hits in the first inning, then batted through the line-up in the third for a six-run rally, anchored by four basehits. Grant Long and Jay Bryant each had one, while Moore came to bat twice in the frame and had two singles, including one for two RBIs.

Moore also knocked in Lancaster’s two runs in the fifth inning. He and Demetrick Lee each had doubles in the inning.

Moore led at the plate in the game, batting 3-for-4 with four RBIs and a run scored. Lee went 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored and Long was 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI. Bryant batted 2-for-3 with a run and RBI.
