The York College baseball team won a pair of games in two very distinct ways on Sunday.
The Spartans won a pitchers' duel, 1-0, and a slugfest, 10-9 in nine innings, to complete a Capital Athletic Conference sweep of visiting Frostburg State. The Spartans have won three straight and six of their last eight to improve to 11-13 overall and 7-5 in the CAC. The Bobcats fell to 13-12 and 5-7.
In the first game, freshman Dan Gurganus combined with senior Brandon Ullom to throw a two-hit shutout. Gurganus (2-1) tossed six innings, allowing just two hits while striking out seven and walking two on 79 pitches. Ullom recorded his fifth save with a perfect seventh inning. York got its run in the fifth when Justin Cohen reached on a throwing error and scored on Colin Porter's RBI single.
In the second game, York rallied from an 8-2 deficit after 41/2 innings to win the game. Steve Tretter and Porter led the Spartans with three hits each. Tretter added two runs scored and two RBIs, while Porter drove in the game winner in the ninth in addition to scoring another. Cohen had two hits and three RBIs in the win. Dan McNamara (1-0) pitched two shutout innings to get the win in relief. Andrew Tucci, Josh Miller and Ullom each pitched one inning in relief without giving up an earned run.
