Bees fall; Bears keep rolling: PHOTOS

FAIRMONT — East Fairmont’s softball team dropped a back-and-forth home slugfest to Braxton County, 15-14, on Wednesday.

"We made it hard on ourselves,” East coach John Postlewait said. “We extended our innings and they have a lot of good hitters and capitalized on our mistakes.”

Braxton was up five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning before the Bees and scored four to make it 15-14. The East rally, however, ended with the tying run was on third base.

Cassidy Toothman had a huge game for the Bees, going 2 for 3 with a career-best six RBIs, including a key bases-clearing double.

“She had a really good day,” Postlewait said.

Hannah Ferrell went 2 for 3 and scored three runs for East; Tori Postlewait was 2 for 4 with a double, three RBIs and scored three runs;  Kayla Summers was 3 for 5 with a double, an RBI and scored three runs and Jasmin Johnson was 2 for 3 with a home run, two RBIs and scored three times.

Ashley Martin added a double and two RBIs for the Bees, while Sydney Postlewait had a single.

Martin started in the circle and struck out two in five innings. Tori Postlewait pitched two frames in relief.

East (19-10) visits Preston today.


Bears roll on the road

Fairmont Senior’s baseball team had little trouble with host Preston on Wednesday, cruising to a 19-4, five-inning win.

The Polar Bears — who dealt with a lightning delay along with a pair of stoppages due to rain — finished with 12 hits.

Bailey Mohr led the way, going 2 for 4 with a triple and six RBIs. Johnny Kesling wasn’t far behind, finishing 2 for 4 with 5 RBIs.

Gage Hannah added two hits and drove in two, Ryder Skarzinski had two hits and an RBI and Michael Parker had two hits and scored three times.

DeVaul got the pitching win, fanning eight and walking a pair in his five innings of work.

Fairmont Senior, now 15-5 and 10-0 in Big 10 play, hosts a doubleheader with Morgantown today.
