Cunningham Dominant in Round-Robin Sweep
The 14U Frederick Hustlers completed a Saturday sweep with convincing wins over the Gettysburg Warhawks and Cumberland Post 13 Junior Legion at Governor Thomas Johnson High School. Matt Cunningham continued to show why he’s one of the best at his age group with a dominant, 69-pitch performance in an 8-0 win over Cumberland. Cunningham tossed a one-hitter with 13 strikeouts and no walks. He also helped himself at the plate with a 2-2 game that included a single, double, walk and two RBIs. Adam Dellamura and Jack Putnam chipped in with two hits each.
The opener was equally impressive as the Hustlers downed the Gettysburg Warhawks 15-1 in a game shortened by the run-rule. Tyler Prather pitched four innings and surrendered one run on three hits. Prather walked six and struck out six. Dustin Isanogle pitched a clean fifth inning in relief. Colby Patterson, Isanogle, Matt Kulikowski and Gabe Torres all had two hits. Isanogle had four RBIs and Kulikowski had two. Cunningham added a two-run double.
The Hustlers, sporting a 9-3 record, are at Ripken this coming weekend for the Highlight Reel tournament.
