Roundup: Gators, Scotties fall

| Monday, April 30, 2001

Winning pitcher Alan Smith blasted a game-winning solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift host West Greene past Geibel in non-section action Friday. Smith was five-for-six on the day and also tallied a triple.

Andy Stroh's three-run homer powered the Gators' eight-run first inning. Stroh finished with four RBIs and two runs scored, while George Parish smacked a two-run triple and Dave Menendez doubled. Josh Trainor scored two runs and batted in one more.

Geibel will host California on Tuesday.

Kenny Potoka smacked a triple for Southmoreland, but the Scotties couldn't overcome a five-run second inning by host Uniontown.

Jared Early went five-for-five with a three-run home run, a triple and six RBIs for the Red Raiders. Mark Ruby picked up the win on the mound.

Robbie Rollinson took the loss for Southmoreland, which will travel to Yough today.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
