Rogers, Dragons big hits in 13-3 win
CHESAPEAKE — Would this qualify as opposites attract?
Alex Rogers wasn’t giving up many hits while his teammates just kept getting them and the Fairland Dragons beat the Chesapeake Panthers 13-3 in an Ohio Valley Conference game on Monday.
Rogers allowed 6 hits over 6 innings. The 2 runs were unearned as he struck out 6 and did not issue a walk.
Brycen Hunt pitched the seventh and allowed an unearned run and walked a batter.
Fairland (6-2, 4-0) banged out 15 hits led by Niko Kiritsy who was 3-4, Adam Marcum at 2-3 with a double and 3 RBI, Cooper Cummings was 2-4 with an RBI and Blake Trevathan went 2-5.
Isaiah Walsh was 2-4 with a double and RBI for the Panthers.
Fairland went up 1-0 in the first inning only to have the Panthers take a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the inning.
But the Dragons scored 5 runs in the second to take the lead for good at 6-2 and they continued to add insurance runs the rest of the way.
On Wednesday, Fairland hosts Portsmouth and Chesapeake entertains Ironton.
