Post 6 Patriots pitcher Brian Bullock scattered 7 hits and allowed just 2 earned runs as the Nanticoke Post 6 Patriots held on for a 10-8 win over Fox Post 2 in Camden, Tuesday.
After 2 innings, Fox led 2-1, but Fox Starter Andrew Rigby struggled with control, walking 6 in 2 2/3 innings. He was tagged for 6 runs on 2 hits, and turned the game over to reliever Brandon Hatch with the bases loaded.
Hatch gave up a double to Evan Strickland, and a single to Brian Bullock, his 2nd of the inning, giving up 2 runs before striking out DeShawn Sample. The Pats scored 2 more in the 4th on Kobe Heinicke's single between first and second, but that was all as Hatch settled in and pitch shutout ball the rest of the game.
Bullock pitched through the 6th, and was relieved by Ryan Bishop, who struggled with control, giving up 5 runs (4 earned) on 3 hits, making the score 10-8, with the tieing run on second.
Trace Hitchens then came with 2 on and 2 outs, and got Joe Carpenter to pop up to first base to end the game, earning a save.
Mike Carrington and Byron Freeman doubled for Fox Post 2, Caleb Smith and Evan Strickland for the Patriots. Pitcher Brian Bullock batted 2 for 3 with a run and an RBI.
