Mariners and Chiefs split series

The Mariners and Chiefs come away with a split after each team won on the road this week. On Monday night the Mariners jumped out to an early lead and hung on thanks to a dominating pitching performance by Marques. He gave up three hits in a complete game shut-out leading Manchester Essex to a 10-0 win. The Mariners had a balanced offense with hits coming from the entire line-up.

The Chiefs were able to even the series last night with a 5-2 win in Essex. Another great Pitching perfromance led the way, this time by Chiefs pitcher Greg Doucette. He gave up three hits on his way to a complete game win with 5 k's. Andy Knox (1-3, BB, SB, 2 RS) and Kevin Michael (2-3, Sac) led the offense for the Chiefs each getting on base twice and Montecalvo had two RBI's. Derek Deranian had a big hit for the Chiefs in the 6th driving in the go ahead run and Matt Scabelli made the defensive play of the game for Ipswich with a diving catch in the 6th robbing Orlando of a hit with two men on base.

Both teams are looking forward to the Holiday weekend and resume play on Tuesday July 5th.
