15U Hustlers Suffer First Loss
Posted by Wayne Main on Jun 11 2013 at 05:00PM PDT
Elkridge’s Jordan Carr and Jimmy Cain made big pitches when it counted and the Hurricanes defeated the Hustlers 8-2 at Howard High School. The Hustlers scratched out nine hits but were only successful two out of eight times with runners in scoring position and left nine runners stranded. Noah Tucker (Tuscarora) suffered the loss, working 2 2/3 innings and giving up eight hits and five earned runs. Vaughn Parker (Thomas Johnson) worked the final 3 1/3 surrendering four hits and three runs (two earned). Alex Cartner (Middletown) had two doubles, two walks and an RBI and Parker had two hits (one double) and an RBI. Joey Schwartz (Smithsburg) was on base all four of his at bats and Braden Thomson had a double. Andy Weaver had four hits for the winners. Interestingly enough, Elkridge’s Carr was a tournament addition for the Hustlers 2011 14U team that won the NABF World Series in Lynchburg, VA; Carr pitched the Championship game that year.
