2012 Regional - Game 17



Box score  

WEST DEPTFORD, N.J. – Upper Moreland scored in each of its first five at-bats on its way to a 17-9 win Tuesday night over West Deptford, NJ-15 to earn a spot in the championship round at the Senior League Baseball Eastern Regional.

 

Colton Hooker fired five innings of strong relief to restore order to what began as a crazy game. With his team trailing 8-4 in the second inning. Hooker allowed just one run over the next five innings, scattering seven hits and striking out two.

 

Robert Knox and Charlie Hooker each had three hits to lead Upper Moreland, which will face Auburn, MA on Wednesday beginning at 5 pm. If Upper Moreland wins at 5 pm, another game will follow 30 minutes later. Earlier on Tuesday, Auburn defeated Upper Moreland, 4-3, in nine innings.

 

Knox had a three run homer in the game to account for his three RBI. Kyle Irwin and Mike Cavanaugh also drove in three for Upper Moreland.

 

Dave Strout was 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored to pace West Deptford’s 12-hit attack. Unfortunately, West Deptford just flat out ran out of pitching, having to use pitchers who had yet to pitch in the postseason. Four pitchers allowed 14 hits and nine walks. West Deptford was also guilty of eight errors in the game, one shy of a regional record.
