Rockport - 11 Hamilton - 5

The Rockport Townies kicked off the 2009 ITL season Sunday night with an 11-5 victory against the Hamilton Generals at Evans Field in Rockport.

Rockport's pitching was led by the return of Lou McGrath, who went 3 plus innings, and the ITL debut of Cory Emerson. Brent Currier closed out the game for the Townies.

Rockport's offensive attack was a collective effort powered by Tom Robertson (2 for 5, HR), Chris Bouchie (3 for 4) and Brent Currier (3 for 5). Rockport was also bolstered by the ITL debuts of Conor Ressel who made a game saving catch in the 6th inning and Ryan Cusick who knocked in 3 runs.

Hamilton was led by Tom Jones who went 1 for 3 and 2 rbis.

Rockport and Hamilton meet in a rematch Thursday night as the Townies travel to Patton Park to face the Generals.
