Generals 12 - Rams 6

Tim O'Leary picked up his first ITL win in a complete game effort. The Generals got off to a fast start scoring the game's first 12 runs over the first 5 1/2 innings. O'Leary matched that output on the mound as he took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. The Rams got back at the Generals in the last 2 innings by scoring 6, but a total comeback was not in the cards.

Hamilton scored 7 in the first 2 innings behind 3 sacrifice flys, a RBI single from Mark Provost, and a RBI double from Andre Painchaud. The Generals put together 5 more runs over the next 4 innings.

In the sixth, the Rams broke up the no-hitter in a big way by scoring 4. Jeff Wood broke the ice with a single. Moore delivered a long 2-RBI double with the bases loaded later in the inning. The Rams got 2 more in the 7th but O'Leary was able to finish it off with a strike-out.

Brasseur was charged with the loss & Dave Leavitt pitched well in relief. Jim Maloney lead the Generals with 3 hits and reached base 5 times, scoring twice. Justin Tilley and Andre Painchaud also added two hits a piece. Jeff Wood and Renzulli each had two hits for the Rams. The two teams finish off the season series tomorrow night at Patton Park, 5:45 start.

Rams Turn a Nice Double Play.
