06/24/08 – Chatham Comes out on Top of Pitcher’s Duel
Wareham Gatemen starting pitcher Brandon Workman (Texas) pitched 5 innings, striking out 10 batters and allowed the only 2 runs of the game in the second inning as the Chatham A’s defeated the Gatemen 2-0 in a rain delayed game at Spillane Field. Chatham starting pitcher Sammy Solis (San Diego) pitched 7 innings, struck out 8 and allowed only 2 hits.
The A’s scored both of their runs on a Grant Green (USC) double in the 2nd. Overall, Green went 3 for 5 with the 2 rbi. Another USC Trojan, Brad Boxberger, picked up his 3rd save of the season out of the bullpen for Chatham. Jimmy Saris (Georgetown) was very impressive for the Gatemen out of the bullpen, pitching 4 scoreless innings in relief of Workman, striking out 3 and allowing only 2 hits.
The Gatemen now hit the road for three straight games over the bridge. Tonight and tomorrow night, the Gatemen will travel to Harwich and take on the Mariners. Robby Broach (Tulane) will start tonight for the Gatemen. On Friday, Wareham will have another chance to take on the A’s in Chatham at Veteran’s Field at 7:00pm.
