Jensen's Arm Carries Generals over Mariners 9-1

Jeff Jensen pitched a complete game, baffling Mariner hitters the entire way. Jensen scattered 7 hits, struck out 5, no walks, and allowed only 1 run to earn the victory. Choate was tagged with the loss for the Mariners.

Jim Maloney started the scoring for the Generals in the second with a solo HR. The Mariners tied it in the 3rd on a Bertolino sacrifice fly. With 2 outs in the fourth the Generals were able to put together a big rally, scoring 4 runs. The key hits came from Tim O'Leary who plated 2 with a nice single just over the first baseman's head, and Mark Potter who contributed an RBI single later in the inning.

O'Leary Lines to Center.

The Generals scored 4 more in the seventh, Bryan Vitale delivered an RBI hit that rounded out the scoring. Jensen finished what he started, surrendering only the one run as the Mariners were retired in the seventh.

Mariners Convert Close Play.

Jim Maloney had two hits and scored twice for the Generals. Orlando led the Mariners offense with two hits. The two teams meet again at Patton Park this Thursday, 5:45pm start.
