Even though Washington managed only one hit off Berkeley Springs’ left-hander Brady Spielman, that was more than enough for Patriot right-hander Ryan Pansch.

INWOOD— And eight-run inning helped carry Musselman past Washington, 13-5. Musselman had chased Washington starting pitcher Blake Wilt after only two-thirds of an inning after batting around and taking a quick 4-0 lead, but then had seen the Patriots use Ryan Pansch’s three-run homer to get Washington within 4-3.

At Shepherd, Minnich has been on fire but there has also been Murphy’s Law

While Nathan Minnich has deservedly gained most of the attention shown Shepherd’s baseball team this winter/spring, the Rams have seen another player have an all-conference type season.
