ADAMS TOWNSHIP – Bryan Kennedy pitched a one-hitter as Clinton-Massie defeated Wilmington 4-0 Tuesday in SBAAC American Division baseball at Paul Schwamberger Field.
The Falcons are 11-3 overall and 6-0 atop the American Division.
The Hurricane falls to 3-9 overall, 2-4 in the American.
Kennedy gave up a hit to WHS leadoff hitter Alex Meyer then pitched hitless ball for the remaining seven innings. He walked one and hit one batter, ironically both came in the sixth inning.
“I give credit to CM and their starting pitcher,” WHS coach Brian Roberts said. “He pitched very well.”
Kennedy struck out seven, including back-to-back batters in the first when WHS put runners at second and third, Camp said.
Luke Chappie started against WHS the first time and picked up the win.
“I comfortable with anybody we put out there on the mound,” CM coach Brian Camp said.
Jordan Tackett was the tough-luck losing pitcher for the Hurricane.
“Jordan deserves better,” Roberts said. “We need to get going at the plate.”
Said Camp, “He did a good job of keeping our guys off, too.
Tackett struck out 10 and gave up just four hits.
Massie plated three runs in the first inning. Seth Goodall doubled home a run then Dom Kerns doubled in a run later in the inning. Wilmington had an error and allowed a runner to reach base on a third strike passed ball, Camp said.
In the third, Goodall doubled, stole third and came home when a deep fly ball was dropped in the WHS outfield.
“We just capitalized on a couple of their miscues,” said Camp.
