Canal Holds on For A Win

By Bill Alexander 07/12/2018, 11:15pm EDT

Another Close Game Between Canal and Fox, decided in the 7th.

The third meeting between Fox and Canal were just like the first two, with the winner decided by only a run.

After Post 2’s Evan Harris scored a run in the bottom of the third off of Miguel Rivera’s single, Post 25 came back with three runs in the fifth, including a solo HR by Joey Lungen, followed by a double from Mason Keene, an RBI single by Alex Weber, and an RBI triple off that bat of Jack McDermott.  Fox answered back in the bottom of the fifth with four runs, highlighted by a three-run homer off the bat of Mikey Carrington. 

Canal’s Joey Lungen hit another solo shot HR in the top of the sixth (his second on the night) to close the gap to one run. In the top of the seventh, Post 25 batters drew back to back walks, and runners moved to second and third base.  A deep sac fly to center field by Ryan Bond knocked in the tieing run for the second out of the inning.  A well-executed single by John Weglarz over the head of the the third baseman brought in the go-ahead run.  Post 25’s

Mason Keene closed out the bottom of the seventh, three up and three down, handing Canal the hard-fought victory between two evenly-matched teams.


Patriot's Big Inning Dooms Canal Post 25

By rsl 07/10/2018, 10:15pm EDT

It was a Pitcher's Duel except in the 6th

Tonight's game started out as a pitcher's duel between Nanticoke Post 6 Patriots, Dylan Layton, and Canal Post 25's Jarrett Weglarz. Good pitching and outstanding fielding play from both teams had the score tied 0-0 after 3, with only one hit between the two teams.

The Patriots got on the board first, as Justin Gray doubled in Mitch Moyer in the top of the 4th. Weglarz struggled a bit, giving up 3 walks before he finally struck out Jake Rogers with the bases loaded to end the inning, with the Patriots up 1-0.

Canal threatened in the bottom of the 4th, after 2 singles put runners on the bases, but two fly balls ended that threat. They then turned a double play to end the top of the 5th leaving the score still 1-0, Patriots.

The Patriots bats came alive in the 6th, as Moyer and Gray both singled and scored on Evan Niblett's double to left. Niblett scored on Dylan Niblett's RBI single, and with one out, scored on Jake Rogers double to left. The inning ended with the Patriots up 5-0.

Canal came back with a run in the 6th, as Jarrett Weglarz drove in his brother John, but Canal left 2 men stranded after a long fly ball out to right. In the 7th, Ryan Bond led off with a single, and scored on a Sacrifice Fly by John Weglarz.

Tyler Heder got the win in relief of starter Dylan Layton (4 Innings). Layton allowed only 2 hits, and 3 walks with 2 strikeouts. Heder allowed one run on one hit, had 2 strikeouts and a walk. Noah Covington pitched the last inning for the Patriots allowing 1 run on 1 hit and another walk. For Canal, Jarrett Weglarz took the loss, allowing 5 runs on 8 hits, with 6 strikeouts. Jarrett Wallace pitched the last inning, holding the Patriots hitless.

The Patriot win puts them firmly in 5th place in the seedings. Canal maintained their commanding lead in the South and their #2 Seed in the tournament, pending the results of games this week.
