Generals Return Favor...10-1

The Hamilton Generals were able to give the Ipswich Chiefs their first loss of the season by the score of 10-1. Judd Funchion pitched a complete game (6 innings due to darkness) gem for the Generals to pick up the win. Funchion surrendered only one run on 4 hits, striking out 5. Doucette picked up the loss for the Cheifs.

The Chiefs got on the board first in the top of the second inning behind a Knox RBI single. The Generals answered in the bottom of the second with 6 runs. Mark Potter tied the game with an RBI single that plated Tom Jones. Reggie Maidment (3-3, 3 RBI) followed with a 2RBI single. Jered Stewart added the exclamation with a 3 run HR through the willow tree in left to complete the scoring in the second. Chris Shuka added an RBI single in the 4th.

Both teams next play this Sunday, Father's Day. Hamilton will travel to Beverly while the Chiefs travel to Rockport with first place on the line. Both the Townies and Chiefs sit atop the ITL standings with 4-1 records.
