The On Deck O’s and starting pitcher RHP Wes Hatley were hard luck 1-0 losers Friday morning in their match up against the New York PG Dark Green team.
New York/PG leadoff hitter Eddie Spitaletta reached base on an error leading off the bottom of the first inning and came around to score on a stolen base and two wild pitches. Hatley settled down to throw five no hit innings, allowing only one other runner to reach base, that via a hit by pitch in the 5th inning. LHP Danny Vilet came in to pitch a 1-2-3 6th inning for the O’s to complete the 6 inning no-hit/no-walk performance.
Four New York/PG pitchers combined on a 3 hit shutout: RHP Steven Roche (2 innings), LHP Blake Aquadro (2 1/3 innings), RHP Greg Devaux (2/3 inning) and LHP Jimmy Hodgkin (2 innings).
