Arundel's Agamennone tops N. County

May 03, 1994|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,Sun Staff Writer

Arundel's Brandon Agamennone had one-hit Broadneck, 8-0, on Friday, but took the ball again yesterday and stopped visiting North County, 6-2, on a four-hitter. The victory enabled the No. 2 Wildcats (13-2) to maintain their one-game lead over No. 3-ranked Old Mill in the 4A East Region.

No. 11 North County fell to 8-6 and is danger of missing the postseason. The Knights are scheduled to finish a suspended game with Severna Park (8-3) today with the latter leading 2-0 in the fifth.

There were no signs of fatigue in Agamennone, who threw consistently in the high 70's on the radar gun and hit 81 mph twice in the fifth inning and 80 once.

"He threw his lowest number of pitches [67] on Friday and told me Sunday at a meeting for our Legion team [Mayo Post], that he felt good and could go," said coach Bernie Walter.

Pitchers are allowed to throw 14 innings in a seven-day period and 10 in a three-day period. Yesterday was the fourth day and Agamennone threw 102 pitches and a complete game.

Agamennone (6-2), who was accepted at Maryland last Thursday and is expected to sign with the Terps, walked two and struck out 10 with the Knights' Bob Christopher getting two of the hits, all singles.

Earl Sewell had a bunt hit to start the fifth inning and scored on third baseman Jamie Stoddard's second error of the game, and Matt Lentz singled in Christopher in the same inning.

The No. 2 Wildcats (13-2) staked Agamennone to a 6-0 first-inning lead by getting six hits off Knights starter Mike Wooden (4-2) and capitalizing on a walk and four errors.

Wooden came out after getting the Wildcats in order in the second and Matt Lentz, a junk baller, one-hit Arundel the rest of the way.
