Manchester wins ‘A” ball opener

Peebles’ Alex Seaman was ruled out at second base on this play in the sixth inning of Wednesday night’s “A” league baseball game in Manchester. Manchester’s Jordan Carpenter takes the relay throw and applies the tag.

Manchester’s Trey Meade slides safely into home, jarring the ball out of the glove of Peebles catcher Levi Newkirk, in first inning action from Wednesday’s “A” league game. Meade pitched five shutout innings on the mound to help the Greyhounds top the Indians 9-1.

Peebles reliever Jacob Lightner delivers a pitch during Wednesday’s “A” league action in Manchester. Lightner pitched three innings, allowing two earned runs, in a 9-1 Manchester victory.

It was a successful June 3 opener for the Class “A” Manchester Greyhounds as they played host to Peebles 1 and using a five-run sixth inning to break open a close game, topped their visitors by a final score of 9-1.

The Greyhounds got five shutout innings from Trey Meade as their starting pitcher and some timely hitting as they took their season opener after having their first two scheduled contests cancelled.

After Meade worked out of a two on, two out jam in the top of the first, the Manchester offense struck first, getting three runs in the bottom half off of Peebles starter Stephen Penn. The first two hitters, Rickey DeAtley and Jordan Carpenter drew walks, and DeAtley moved to third on a fly out to right off the bat of Cole Meade, then slid home under the catcher’s tag after a passed ball. a double to right center by Trey Meade drove Carpenter home with the second run of the frame.

A wild throw on a ground ball back to Penn allowed Mason Applegate to reach safely and move Meade to third, where he came home on a close play at the plate on a sacrifice fly to center by Kaulen Cox to give the home team a 3-0 advantage after one.

After that rocky first inning, Penn settled down and allowed just one run over his next two innings of work. In the top of the third, Peebles got a one-out double to center from Lane Hanson but he was picked off of second base in a rundown and tagged out by Applegate, and a strikeout swinging of Alex Seaman ended the inning. The Greyhounds added a run in the bottom of third when DeAtley walked again, stole second, and came home on a Cole Meade base hit to center field to make it 4-0.

Peebles got a couple of base runners in the fourth on a Zach Jones single and a walk to Jacob Lightner, but Meade fanned Wade Shiveley to again work out of trouble. In the bottom of the fourth, Lightner came on to pitch for the Indians and allowed a lead off single to Nick Hoskins and then walked Kaulen Cox, but got a lift from his defense when with Cox running, a pop up behind the plate was snagged by catcher Hanson who fired to first for an easy double play.

Both teams went down in order in the fifth and Peebles finally got on the board in the top of the sixth with Kaulen Cox on in relief for the Hounds. A strange inning began with Hanson drawing a walk, stealing second, but being gunned down by Hoskins attempting to steal third for the first out. The next hitter, Seaman followed with a fly ball that dropped in along the left field line but he was thrown out at second attempting to stretch the hit into a double. With two outs now, Levi Newkirk was hit by a pitch, stole second, and came home when Penn grounded a single between short and third to make it 4-1. Cox got Jones to fly to left for the final out to keep the Manchester lead at three.

With the visitors still within striking distance, the Greyhounds padded their advantage by scoring five times in the bottom of the sixth off of Lightner. DeAtley led off the frame with his third walk of the game, stole second, and came home when Carpenter drove a long two-bagger to right center. Carpenter came home on a base hit to center by Trey Meade that made it 6-1.

Meade came across later in the inning when Kaulen Cox reached on an error and a Leevi Francis single to center plated Hoskins, who had earlier drawn a walk. Another Peebles error allowed Cox to cross the plate and after six innings of play, the Greyhounds now held a 9-1 lead.

In the top of the seventh with Cox still on the mound, Shiveley and Lawyer Glazebrook drew free passes, but Cox got Bostin Robinson swinging for the final out of a successful opening night for the Greyhounds.

Trey Meade got the win for the Hounds, going five scoreless innings and striking out 11 Peebles hitters. At the plate, he was 2 for 3, scored twice, and drove home a pair. Lead off man Rickey DeAtley was on base three times via the walk and scored all three times. Jordan Carpenter was 1 for 2 and scored twice, while Cole Meade, Nick Hoskins, and Leevi Francis also had base hits for the winners.

For Peebles, who dropped to 1-1, Stephen Penn took the loss, giving up three earned runs in three innings. Alex Seaman was 2 for 3, with Lane Hanson, Penn, and Zach Jones accounting for the remainder of the Indian hits.

Both teams will be back in action on Saturday, June 6 with the Greyhounds hosting West Union 3 and Peebles at home with West Union 2.
