Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown knocked out of baseball playoffs

Linglestown knocked out of baseball playoffs

Despite playing their hearts out, the Linglestown Juggernauts' season ended Saturday when they lost 8–7 to Hummelstown. With the win, Hummelstown won the best-of-three first-round East Shore Twilight League playoff series.

After spotting Hummelstown four runs in the first inning at Hummelstown's Nye Field, Linglestown chipped away and eventually tied the game in the last inning of regulation play on Sam Nott's two-run blast over the left-field fence.

Linglestown's good hitting continued in the first extra inning. After shortstop Marc Frailey was hit by a pitch, Sean Frailey, Marc's brother, hit a two-run homer.

Hummelstown nailed down the game and the playoff series by scoring three runs on four hits in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Linglestown pitcher Pete Hayden threw a solid game after getting off to a rocky start. The team had no relief pitchers on the bench and Hayden ran out of gas in the last inning.

Next season could be a good one if the college players return and the club picks up some new arms to bolster the pitching staff.
