Generals Over Tories

Hamilton (10-9-1) picked up a road victory by the score of 6-2 Friday night in Topsfield.  Luke "YOLO" Painchaud (7IP, 4H, 2R, 0ER, 1BB, 3K) went the distance to earn the win.  Painchaud carried a three-hit shutout into the 7th before a leadoff single and a two-base error by the rightfielder eliminated his chance at a shutout.  Beopple started and went six innings as he took the loss for Topsfield.
The Generals offensive attack was led by Justin Tilley (2-for-2, 2BB, R, 2RBI), who reached base all four times out of the leadoff spot.  Jim Maloney and Mark Potter also added two hits apiece for the visitors.  O'Leary (1-for-1, BB, RBI) and Alan Hatfield (2-for-3, R) had solid days at the plate for Topsfield and BJ Weed threw a scoreless 7th in relief.
