Keyser, WV- Potomac State picked up two complete game efforts on the mound en route to a sweep over Garrett College Sunday afternoon at Golden Park by scores of 4-1 and 14-1.

In the opener Michael Drye threw a seven inning complete game striking out six and walking none to pick up the win.  Drye allowed just one run on five hits to raise his record to 2-1.

“It was huge to get such a strong effort from Drye,” said PSC Head Coach Doug Little.  “He has really given us great starts in his last two outings and is really starting to perform at a high level.  He mixed his pitches well and pitched ahead in the count; throwing lots of strikes.  Those things will win you lots of games.”

PSC jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead when T.J. Weisenburg led off that game with a walk, stole second and went to third on a throwing error.  He then scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Jake Potter.  Potter then scored on a two-out error from the Garrett leftfielder to give the Catamounts a 2-0 lead.

PSC added two more runs in the fourth on a sacrifice fly from Weisenburg and another Garrett error.  Garrett had five errors in the game.

Jason Hepple provided the Laker run in the fourth with an RBI double that scored Andrew Mason who had singled.

Potomac State turned two double plays behind Drye to avoid further damage.

In the nightcap Joel Rosencrance gave the Catamounts another solid effort on the mound with a five-inning complete game.  The sophomore struck out three and allowed just one run to pick up his first win of the season.

“Joel knows how to pitch, he really works hitters by moving the ball around and pitching to their weaknesses,” said Little.  “He competes while on the mound, and can keep you in games.”

Zach Markel led Potomac State with a double, two singles and three runs batted in.  Fabio Arcelay, Kyle Mann and Robert Kelley each added two hits for the Catamounts who banged out twelve hits. 

“These were games that we really need to win,” said Little.  “We have been really inconsistent, I truly believe we have a chance to be a solid team, our guys just need to keep working and taking care of the little detail that it takes to be successful.”

The Catamounts will be home gain in Wednesday when they host Cecil College for a 1PM twin bill.
