BT ace Nick O’Keefe started off the game with 2 K’s in the first, allowing a lone base hit to the man who was about to step on the mound for the Weemen, GM/ace Colin Amidon. After getting two quick outs in the bottom of the 1st, Amidon gave up 2 base hits then plunked O’Keefe in his ample noggin to load the bases. BT GM Matt Mullen, perhaps sensing runs would be hard to come by in this affair, jumped on the 2nd offering from Amidon, raking a double into center field and giving his squad a 2-0 lead they would never relinquish. Amidon induced an easy flyout to right to end the inning, but the damage was done.
Amidon settled in after the first, adding 6 strikeouts to his league lead and allowing only 2 hits in his next 3 innings, but his Weemen offense never did get untracked against O’Keefe, who was stellar in this one, giving up just 6 hits in 5 innings and picking up 9 K’s. The BTs headed home happy with their 2-0 victory further distancing themselves from the rest of the league.
