Generals over Mariners

Hamilton defeated Manchester/Essex by a score of 8-5 Thursday night at Patton Park. Matt Greeke pitched a complete game for the Generals to get the win and Mike Cain also went the distance for the Mariners.

Hamilton fell into an early 4-0 hole, but scored one in the second and tied the game in the third on a three-run HR by Jered Stewart. After Manchester/Essex re-took the lead, Hamilton added two runs in the bottom of the fifth on a few defensive miscues by the Mariners to take a 6-5 lead. Hamilton tacked on two more in the sixth highlighted by a Reggie Maidment solo-HR to account for the 8-5 final. Provost had two hits for Hamilton and McFarland had three for Manchester/Essex.

The two teams play again Friday night at Patton in a makeup game.
