Maryland Dodgers Vs Baltimore BrewCew
EJ Nadolny took the mound in this game for the BrewCrew. He retired the side with some help from catcher Ryan Welling who threw out a Dodger trying to steal after a leadoff single. In the bottom half of the first Kenny West singled with one out and then Zach Nadolny hit one to right center that short hopped the wall. West was sent home by an aggressive call and was thrown out to halt BrewCrew momentum.
The Dodgers had back to back singles to open the second but a 4-6-3 from the BrewCrew middle infield (West and Devon Jerrard) followed by a nifty back-handed play by Jerrard up the middle once again left the Dodgers scoreless. In the bottom of the second with two outs Dan Fama singled. Followed by a Matt Gabrielski single. Jerrard then continued his hot start with a triple to right center to score two runs. Dre Jones the tripled home the third run of the inning.
Through five innings the Dodgers were held scoreless. In the bottom of the fifth Jones reached on a strikeout, stole second and third then scored on a wild pitch to manufacture a run on his own. West then walked and Welling hit him in on an error by the Dodger third basemen. Connor Goodie then doubled off the left center wall to score Welling and extend lead to 6-0.
The Dodgers put together a rally on the sixth but reliever John Edwards stopped the bleeding at 6-2 after getting the final two outs. BrewCrew answered in the bottom half after Zach Nadolny hit a two run double to score Gabrielski and Jones.
Zach Nadolny closed out the game with 2 strikeouts and two unearned runs.
