Welcome to the Home of the
Fallston, MD- The Susky Braves split their fall opening twin bill with the Giants this past Sunday at Fallston High School, winning the first game 5-1 while dropping game two 12-1.
It was a mixed performance for the tribe on a day that saw the return of Jay Witasick to the Braves' squad. Returning manager Matt Buerhaus penned the lineups after the sudden retirement of brother Wade following the tribe's summer campaign. Chris Veil was his usual self throwing 6 innings of one run ball in picking up the game 1 victory. Later in the day, after a rocky first inning for Veil, Matt Buerhaus couldn't do any better and pretty much wet the bed with 2.2 innings of work, if you want to call it that. Things were unusually sloppy overall for the Braves in game two with some defensive miscues as well.
Offensively, Tim Deyesu was a boon for fantasy owners. He couldn't stay off the bases, or keep from stealing them, scoring 4 runs with a couple of hits, 3 swipes, a walk and a plunk for good measure. Bart Dellinger, nursing a bum wing, also shined picking up a couple of knocks. Brandan Buerhaus drove in 3 on two hits, while Chris Veil and newcomer Wesley Read also grabbed a pair of hits. TJ Fairweather capped off the day's offense with one of his classic two-baggers.
Look for the tribe back in action next Sunday against the Mariners at 8:30 and 10:30am.
