Keyser, WV- Connar Bastaich hit his first home run of the season to help Potomac State down Harford Community College 7-1 at Golden Park on Sunday afternoon.

Game two ended in a 2-2 tie as the game was snowed out.

Tre Porter put himself in scoring position with two extra-base hits for Potomac State. He doubled in the second and fifth innings.

Dalton Westfall was in control on the hill limiting Harford to just two hits. Westfall, who allowed one earned run, walked four and struck out four during his four innings of work to pick up his first win.

Drew Hemminger worked three scoreless innings to garner his first save of the 2014 season. He struck out one and allowed just two hits.

Potomac State’s Bastaich, Tre Porter and Alex Levitan combined for five hits and three RBIs.

HCC’s Austin Griffie took the loss. He lasted four innings, walked two, struck out one, and allowed four runs.

Potomac State piled on three more runs in the bottom of the fifth, as Tre Porter doubled, scoring Elliott McCummings who had walked to kick off the inning. That was followed up by Levitan's single, plating Bastaich, who had also walked.

PSC (10-7-1) out hit Harford (7-9-1) nine to four.
