Game 2: Nanticoke Post 6 - 10, Stahl Post 30 - 7: The second game started very differently as both teams pounded out 6 runs each in the first 2 innings. Starters Dustin Sutton (Stahl) and Evan Niblett (Patriots) were rocked early, giving up a total of 7 extra base hits, but both found their groove in the 3rd with the score tied 6-6.
Evan Niblett only gave up one additional run, a Nate McVey home run in the 7th. Sutton allowed Post 6 to take the lead in the 4th on a 2 out walk and a couple of singles but kept the Patriots from expanding their lead until the 6th inning.
Post 6 bats exploded in the 6th as Matt Warrington, Dylan Layton and Dylan Niblett all doubled, combining with a 2 out walk to drive in 3 runs that proved to be the insurance needed.
Noah Covington came in to finish the last out of the game (Niblett had reached the Pitch Count Limit) and earned a save. See the Schedule Page stat recap for all the hits.
