GAITHERSBURG — Despite a late-inning rally from the home varsity baseball team, the visiting Quince Orchard Cougars escaped Thursday with a 7-6 road victory over the Gaithersburg Trojans.
Gaithersburg, who fell to 10-3, trailed by six runs entering the seventh inning but got some timely hitting from Bryan DeCarlo.
The junior outfielder doubled in the bottom of the seventh inning to spark Gaithersburg’s rally. He later scored on a wild pitch.
“We made a couple mistakes there, but to their credit they didn’t pack it in, down 7-1,” said Quince Orchard head coach Jason Gasaway. “They keep fighting and [were] probably another foot away from tying the ballgame.”
