ML Game 55

Baker Printing 10
Campbell's Boathouse 9

 

Baker Printing won its 5th consecutive game with their 2nd come from behind victory in the past 3 games. Ryan Duplicki pitched great for Baker as he had a no hitter going through 4 innings with no hits and 7 strikeouts. Max Dougherty has his off speed pitches landing for strikes as he struck out 8 batters including 6 consecutive Baker hitters in the 1st and 2nd inning. Baker still managed to build a 7 to 0 lead off of hard throwing Max.

In the top of the 5th inning, Kyle Langan finally got to Duplicki with a bunt single that ignited Campbells with a 2 run rally that ran Duplicki out of pitches. The Campbell's rally continued in the top of the sixth as they smacked six hits and including the big blow, a 2 run home run bomb to left field by 11 year old Jake Fisher to give Campbell's 9-7 lead.

Baker wasted no time responding to the fierce rally in the bottom of the 6th as they had their top of the order up. Brian Virbitsky led off with a hard hit double down the 3rd base line. Then, Brendan Schramm hit a single to drive in Virbitsky and cut the lead to 1 run. Ryan Duplicki stepped up to the plate and blasted the second pitch all the way to the Continental Field for a walk off game winning home run! This was Duplicki's league leading 10th home run of the season.

Baker was led in hitting by Brian Virbitsky with 4 hits, 2 by Brendan Schramm, and hits from Jeffrey Lunger, Zak Summy, Luke Lombardi, Nick Palermo, Justin Ross and Russell Smith.

Andrew Sposato, Max Daugherty, Brendan Ricciardi, Alex Jacobs, Josh Grady, and Kyle Langan each had hits to lead the Campbell's attack.
