Rams down Thundering Herd in baseball 8-2
The Rams baseball team cracked the win column Tuesday with a decisive 8-2 victory over visiting Carlisle.
A brisk but sun-filled day saw the Rams score early and often behind hot hitting centerfielder Troy Schreffler (2-4,4 RBI) and shortstop, Scotty McManamon (3-3, 2 RBI).
Schreffler’s towering two-run homer, his second of the season, got the Rams on the board in the first inning. McManamon stayed hot at the plate just missing the cycle by a home run.
Left fielder Anthony Dorris and designated hitter Justin Miller both collected two hits for the Rams as well.
On the mound, junior Dylan Sims, making his first varsity start, earned the win throwing four solid innings, striking out four and only walking one, while scattering five hits.
Solid defensive plays by second baseman Dustin Sites and right fielder Collin Shafer helped lock down the win for the Green Machine.
The Rams are back in action Thursday as they travel to division foe Mifflin County to take on the Huskies at 4:15 p.m.

CD boys lacrosse earns win over Thundering Herd
Central Dauphin Rams matched up against the Carlisle Thundering Herd Tuesday afternoon at Central Dauphin High School.
Although CD built a five-goal margin at one point to lead 11-6, Carlisle came back and narrowed the deficit to two goals, but that was the closest they would get.
CD was able to carry their lead all the way to the finish with a final score of 14-10.
Solid defense and midfield play and a lot of production out of the attackmen helped seal the deal. As has been the case for much of the season, face-off work was strong and wing play helped win possessions.
CD was playing at nearly full strength for the first time all season and they looked like they were comfortable executing on both sides of the field.
Nick Koussis led all scorers with seven goals and four assists; Brenden Yingling added three goals and five assists; Max Anderson contributed three goals and two assists and Kyle Mayberry rounded out the scoring with a goal.
Central Dauphin’s next game is at Northern York on Thursday at 6 p.m.
