ML Game 58

Patriot Construction    3
Hagan's Funeral Home    2

Media, PA - What was probably the fastest six inning game of the year (one hour), ended in drama. A shorthanded Patriot beat a shorthanded Hagan's on a walkoff sixth inning home run by Caleb Mahalik. Mahalik also pitched six innings, striking out six and walking none. Hagan's took the lead in the first inning and held on until the bottom of the sixth when Mahalik struck. Patriot added hits by Giavanni Antonelli and A.J. Spallucci. Patriot was also helped by some great defense by Naz Lennon and call-up Leo Burman who made a rally killing catch in centerfield in the top of the sixth inning.

Hagan's strong effort was led by the pitching of Michael Castaldi going six innings, striking out ten, and walking none. Hagan's offense was led by Thomas Zeigler collecting two hits in the loss. Max Elfenbein played a solid centerfield throwing out a runner in the second inning and catching a deep fly ball in the sixth.

Pitch Counts:
     Mahalik 68


     Castaldi 75
