Frederick, MD– The Frederick Keys (9-8) drove in 12 runs on 13 hits en route to a series clinching 12-6 victory over the State College Spikes (6-11) on Tuesday night at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

The Keys never trailed in the contest and the bats came out firing from the start with eight of the nine Keys hitters in the starting lineup at least tallying a hit or scoring a run.

Jake Plastiak (Kentucky) led the Keys team with a game-high four RBI, including a three-run double down the right field line in the 2nd. Grant Jay (Mobile Christian HS) collected a team-high three hits, including a triple into the right-center field gap. Jesus Peña (Miami Springs Prep) also picked up his first two RBI of the summer.

The State College defense certainly helped the Keys in the win as well, committing five errors in the game. The Spikes have now committed nine errors in the series so far.

Starting pitcher and right-hander Luke Pryor (Mount Saint Mary’s) struck out three in 3.0 innings of work while allowing three earned runs. Right-hander Nik Galatas (Jackson State) struck out three in 3.0 innings out of the bullpen while also allowing three runs (only one earned). Right-hander Jonathan Pintaro (Shorter University) finished the night with a scoreless inning of relief to cap off the seven-inning win.

Frederick will go for the sweep against State College on Wednesday night. First pitch for tomorrow’s game is scheduled for 6:35 pm.
