ML Playoff Game 11

Baker Printing    3
Carman Insurance Group    2


Carman and Baker squared off in the winner’s bracket final on Thursday evening. It turned out to be a pitcher’s duel. Patrick O’Kane took the hill for Carman and allowed 2 runs due to some fielding miscues in the 1st inning. In the top of the 2nd, Sam Sav drilled a solo HR to left field to cut the lead to 2-1. Baker responded in the bottom of the 2nd scoring a run on an RBI single by Brendan Schramm. The score remained 3-1 until the top of the 5th when Keith Stubblebine drilled a double down the right field line and later scored on a single by Nate Furman. Brendan Schramm came on in relief in the 6th to seal the victory for Baker. Not before shortstop Giovanni Matarazzo made a fantastic game ending catch of a foul ball on the left field line.

Pitching was the story of this game as O’Kane limited Baker to just 3 hits which was its lowest total of the year. Ryan Duplicki had his most effective outing of the year, holding Carman to 2 runs, walked 1 batter and struck out 10 batters.
