Tucker, Parker Dominate Harford Land Sharks 16U in Sweep
Noah Tucker (Tuscarora) pitched his best game of the young season, a complete game four-hitter with nine strikeouts and no walks as the 15U Hustler edged the Harford Land Sharks in game one by a score of 2-1. The effort offset a great performance by the Land Sharks right-hander Scott Bradley who held the Hustlers to four hits as well. Vaughn Parker (Thomas Johnson) had two of the hits and an RBI and Joey Schwartz (Smithsburg) doubled.
Parker pitched an abbreviated five inning complete game in the back end of the doubleheader, also holding the Land Sharks to four hits in a 12-2 romp. The Hustlers found themselves down 2-1 in the fourth when they exploded for six runs on five hits and three walks and followed that with a five run fifth. John Harding (St Johns Catholic Prep) started things with a line drive to left, Mason Machak (Middletown) doubled down the left field line and Jack Duffy (Urbana) ripped an two-run double to the left center gap. Schwartz, Parker, Harding and Duffy each had two hits.
With the two wins, the Hustlers run their record to 9-0. They are back in action Tuesday evening, June 4th at Governor Thomas Johnson High School against the HCYP Raiders Blue. First pitch is set for 6:00pm.
