McVeytown – McVeytown hurler Jarod Yoder was almost untouchable on the mound as tossed a 2-hit shut out in a 11-0 five inning victory over Strodes Mills.

In the win, he also struck out seven and didn’t walk a single batter in the McVeytown win.

Yoder also led the way offensively posting a 2-for-2 night with two singles and two runs scored.

Also notching two hits was Danon Beaston who also went 2-for-2 with two runs scored and an RBI. Josh Bomberger also tallied two hits.

Bomberger and Logan Parks both blasted triples. Parks had two RBIs as did Bomberger.

Others picking up hits on the night were Tucker Gill, Kaden Mitchell and Isaac Wilson.

Picking up hits for Strodes Mills were Grady Hoppel and Bryson Hughes.

After holding Strodes hitless in the top of the first, McVeyton exploded onto the scene in the bottom of the inning, playing eight.

Leadoff hitter Wilson reached on a Strodes miscue.

He then stole second and set the stage for Bomberger.

Bomberger blasted a triple into centerfield, scoring Wilson.

Mitchell scored Bomberger when he reached base on another early error by Strodes Mills.

Stimely upped McVeytown another run when he scored on a wild pitch.

Beaston advanced everyone a base, still with nobody out.

Parks bounced into a fielder’s choice as Strodes forced out Bailey at the plate.

In his second time at bat in the inning, Wilson again reached on a miscue, scoring two more.

Strodes got two out of the last three out, holding the score at eight.

Yoder was strong again in the second, sending down Strodes Mills in order 1-2-3 again.

In the second, McVeytown added three more runs highlighted by a 2-run triple by Parks and an RBI single by Bailey.

From there Yoder stayed in control.

Strodes broke up the no-hot bid in the third when Hoppel hit a double that hit down just inside the left field line. He hustled to second trying to get a rally started.

But Yoder settled back in and sent down the next three-in-a-row, escaping the runner in scoring position.

Defensively, Strodes settled down and kept McVeytown scoreless the rest of the way.

In their final at bats, Bryson Hughes tried to get a last ditch effort for a rally by hustling out a slow chopper in between the pitcher and catcher.

However, despite showing a never give up attitude it was not enough to make a comeback.
