CHESTERTOWN, Md. – Washington (Md.) scored five of its six runs in the third and fourth innings to top McDaniel 6-4 in Centennial Conference (CC) baseball action on Friday.

Colin Franke (Highland Mills, N.Y./Cornwall Central) was one of eight players with a hit for the Green Terror (10-13, 3-9 CC), adding an RBI and a run scored.

Ryan Donnelly led the Shoremen (23-11, 7-5 CC) with a 2-for-3 day at the plate, scoring twice.

Trailing 2-0, CJ Gillmer led off the home third with a single before being erased on a fielder's choice. A two-out Donnelly single to right put runners at first and second for Aaron Barclay, who roped a double to the right-center game to tie the game.

After Barclay stole third, a Matt Tancredi infield single gave the hosts a 3-2 lead.

Ryan Zwier reached on a throwing error to lead off the fourth before a Luke D'Ostillio single put two on.

A bunt single played Zwier before a sacrifice fly stretched the lead to 5-2.

Singles from Antonio Rosanova (Laurel, Md./DeMatha) and Kasey Nelson (St. Pete's Beach, Fla./St. Michael's [Md.]) cut the deficit to 5-3 in the top of the fifth.

Two hit batters and a walk loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the seventh before a Max Hammond sacrifice fly pushed the lead back to three.

Singles from Franke and Ryan Downes (Hagerstown, Md./St. Maria Gorretti) around a Griffon Mahon (Rockville, Md./St. John's College) loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the ninth.

A fielder's choice by Rosanova scored Franke before he stole second to put the tying run in scoring position. Nick Popolizio got back-to-back strikeouts, however, to pick up his fifth save of the year.

A one-out double from Zachary Glover (Westminster, Md./Calvert Hall) followed by a Tom Daly (Haddon Heights, N.J./Haddon Heights) single and an error put runners at second and third in the top of the second.

A drop on a sacrifice fly and error with the bases loaded staked McDaniel to a 2-0 lead.

The Green Terror returns to action at home against Franklin & Marshall on Saturday. The first game of the doubleheader begins at 12:30 p.m.
