Ipswich 8 - Hamilton/Wenham 6

The Chief's rattled off their 5 win in a row tonight defeating Hamilton 8-6.

Kevin Michael picked up the win for the Chief's tonight. Going 6 1/3 before giving way to Chris Lane who picked up the save for the Chief's.

The offense was lead by Andy Knox who had 3 hits and 2 RBI's. Tom Radzim went 2-4 for 3 RBI's. Matt Lane also chipped in 2 hits and an RBI. Both Travis Doty, and Radzim both scored 2 runs.

With the score 8-6 Chief's in the bottom of the 7th, the Generals made it interesting with Mark Provost leading off the inning with a double, which was then followed by a Jared Stewart 2-Run bomb to left. Lane would then enter with Jim Maloney on 1st who reached on an error. Lane would strik out Justin Tilley, give up a basehit to Sullivan, and would then strike out Reggie Maidment to end the game on a called third strike.

The Generals offense was paced by Jared Stewart who was 1-2 at the plate with a HR and 2 RBI's. Mark Provost was also 2-4 with a run scored in the loss.

Ipswich won the season series 3-4, Ipswich travels to Rockport on Sunday night, and the Generals don't play until Tuesday when they face off against Beverly.
