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.
