CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Orange team captured the Orange & Blue World Series championship with a 6-1 win over the Blue team on Tuesday evening at Davenport Field. Three Orange pitchers combined on a one-hitter.
Nathaniel Abel (So., Haymarket, Va.) started for the Orange and worked five innings while allowing just a hit and a run to earn the win. He gave up a triple on the first pitch of the game to Colin Harrington (R-Jr., Johnstown, Pa.), then limited the Blue to just two walks and a hit batsman over his five innings.
Blue starter Trey Oest (Fr., Dover, Fla.) worked four innings and allowed a pair of runs and four hits while striking out four in taking the loss.
The Blue's lone run came in the first when Reed Gragnani (Sr., Richmond, Va.) hit a sacrifice fly to score Harrington.
The Orange stormed back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first on back-to-back RBI doubles by McCarthy and Jared King (R-Sr., Radford, Va.).
They got some breathing room in the third inning with three runs. With one out Nick Howard (So., Olney, Md.) reached on a throwing error. After a Cogswell single, Downes tripled in a pair of runs, and he scored on a McCarthy sac fly.
