Keyser, WV- Tanner Everton delivered just what the Potomac State Baseball team needed. A stellar effort on the mound.

After dropping the opening game 17-7, Potomac State had dropped three straight.

Everton turned out to be just what the Catamounts were looking for: a stopper. The freshman produced a gutty complete game effort allowing just two runs and striking out eight as PSC won 7-2.

"Tanner likes to compete," said Potomac State Head Coach Doug Little. "He is throw-back kid with a great work ethic and mentality. I'm happy for him and more happy that we could get a win in that second game. We needed it."

"It was great to be able to go out and take the mound for my first start,"said Everton. " I had confidence in my teammates that they were behind me and we pulled together to get a big win."

Jake Potter drove in two runs with a single and two doubles and Robert Kelley added a single and a double.

In the opener Potomac State allowed back-to-back seven run innings as the Hornets outhit PSC 19-8 and drilled two home runs.
