MIAA B baseball

Jimmy Snyder stroked Dan Parlette's 141st pitch of the game into center field for a base hit, scoring Evan Williams with the game-ending run as Mt. Carmel edged Chapelgate Christian Academy, 3-2, in eight innings at yesterday's MIAA B Conference finals.

Parlette and Mt. Carmel's Andrew Ganzzermiller (10-4) went all the way at Joe Cannon Stadium, but Ganzzermiller threw 99 pitches in his eight innings and appeared a little stronger at the end.

"Parlette struck out 14 the last time we played using a lot of breaking pitches and that's all we worked on the last three days in batting practice," said Cougars coach Mike Naunton.

The result forces another game at 4 p.m. today at Gilman with both teams 2-1 in the double-elimination format. It was also Mt. Carmel's first win over the Flames (11-7) in three games this season.

Parlette and his team picked it up in the fifth and sixth innings, leaving the bases loaded both times, or the game could have ended sooner. The Cougars (16-7) also left two on in the seventh as Parlette, who gave up six hits, struck out 12, walked five and hit two batters, escaped another jam.

Mt. Carmel left a total of 12 men on base, but managed to score unearned runs in the third and fourth innings after Chapelgate took a 2-1 lead in the top of the fourth.

Travis Saulsbury singled to center for two runs off Ganzzermiller in the fourth. Ganzzermiller gave up seven hits, walked four and struck out three, leaving at least one Flame on base from the second inning through the eighth.
