The Frederick Hustlers rolled into Rehoboth Beach, Delaware for the 15-team Sports at the Beach Tournament and left with the Championship. The winners, known for their outstanding pitching and defense, added one more spice to their recipe and that came in the form of the long ball. Matt Cunningham hit three home runs, Marshall Mott connected twice, and Joe Pippin and Tyler Prather each had one as the Hustlers outscored their six opponents 58-15. Mott, Cunningham, Nick DeLisi, Justin Ropp, and Pippin all came up big on the mound throughout the weekend. The Hustlers beat the Waldwick Warriors 13-0 on Friday to open pool play and then took care of the Northern Valley Coyotes 7-4. The boys in black and gold then turned around Saturday and dispatched the Delmarva Diamonds 11-3 before the heavy rain came. Saturday’s second scheduled game against the Frozen Ropes Rockies was cancelled. The #1 seeded Hustlers started Championship Round play on Sunday with an impressive 11-0 win over the Olney All-Stars. They followed that up with an equally exciting 10-5 win over the GB Heat; the GB Heat had just eliminated the strong Olney Pirates from the CRAB League 8-1. The Championship game pitted the tournament’s #1 and #2 seeds and this day belonged to the Hustlers. DeLisi, Cunningham and Pippin limited the Pittsburgh Outlaws to three runs in the 6-3 win. Mott led the Hustlers at the plate going 6-11, followed by Prather (7-13), DeLisi (7-14), Pippin (7-14), Ropp (6-12), Cunningham (6-15) and JT Sachar (4-10). image
