Bridgeport, Central advance in tourney

by Rob Peirce

SPORTS WRITER

SHINNSTON -- You know you're a power hitter when you hit the ball over two fences with one swing.

This is what Bridgeport shortstop Chris Enourato did when he hit a three-run homer to left-center in the fourth inning of Saturday's first-round game in the West Virginia District 5, Area 1, 11- and 12-year-old All-Star Tournament against Salem at Shinnston Little League field.

Enourato's homer landed in a back yard across Painter Alley, behind the left-field bleachers. It gave Bridgeport a 6-1 lead, and Bridgeport ultimately won, 10-2.

Enourato and Patrick Oliverio each went 3-for-3, and pitcher Jeremy Gum added two hits for Bridgeport.

Bridgeport jumped to a 3-1 lead in the third. Justin McBee singled, and Andrew Ford sacrificed him to second.

Greg Groves reached on a fielding error, and McBee scored from second on an overthrow on the same play. Groves wound up at third and scored on a sacrifice by Enourato.

Meanwhile, Gum controlled Salem hitters through five innings, striking out 10 and allowing one hit.

Bridgeport advances in the winner's bracket to play Clarksburg National at 2 p.m. today, while Salem plays the loser of the Clarksburg Central-Shinnston game, which begins at 4 p.m. today.

Also Saturday, Central beat Worthington, 5-0, behind Mark Furm's pitching. Furm threw a complete-game shutout, allowing one hit and striking out 13.

Mike Squires led Central with two hits and three RBIs.

In Weston, Taylor County defeated Philippi, 8-7, and Upshur County topped Calhoun County, 7-6. Today, Taylor meets Belington at 2 p.m., and Upshur plays Lewis County at 4 p.m.

n MOOSE WINS FIRST GAME: The 16-year-old Clarksburg Moose Palomino team kicked off the Greensboro Invitational with a win over the St. Louis Americans, 4-3.

Moose trailed 2-0 going into the top of the fifth, but scored four runs to take a 4-2 lead.

Brett McClain picked up the win for Moose. Aaron Cleavenger went 2-for-3 with two RBIs to lead Moose.

n SEMI-LATE DRIVERS IN SPOTLIGHT AT I-79: The Semi Late drivers were featured Friday night at Interstate 79 Speedway as they ran a special event.

Clarksburg's Steve Wilmoth won the 25-lap Semi Late invitational. Robbie Scott won the Late Model race. Shawn Davis won the Modified race. Jim Byers won the Pure Stocks event. Dave Summers won the 4 Cylinder feature.
