Shafer's Single Sinks Pirates
Dan Shafer's two-out single in the top of the seventh scored Alex Emlet with the game-winning run in New Oxford's 5-4 win over Cashtown Thursday at Cashtown. Both teams took turns trailing, then rallying to retake the lead in the game. New Oxford led 3-0 after two frames thanks to Jordan Arnold's 2-run single and a sac fly from Brady Topper, but Cashtown tied things up on a pair of bases-loaded walks sandwiched around Ethan Ketterman's RBI single. The Pirates took the lead in the fourth on Michael Tempel's RBI single that scored Dylan Ed, but Topper knotted things at 4-4 in the sixth on an infield single. Arnold and Larry Baumgardner had two hits each for the Twins, while Tempel and Ketterman notched a pair of singles for Cashtown.
