2013 Regional - Game 2

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ -- Naamans Little League of Wilmington, DE used a three-run fourth inning and a strong pitching performance to defeat Glassboro, NJ, 4-1, in opening night action at the 2013 Senior League Baseball Eastern Regional on Friday. 

After beating the host district team from New Jersey on Friday night, Naamans will face the New Jersey state champs from Buena, NJ at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. Glassboro moves into an elimination game on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. against an opponent to be determined. 

Graham Haines earned the win, going the first four innings and allowing six hits one run, which came in the first. He did not issue walk while striking out three. Doug Ryan came on to close it out, returning nine of the 13 batters he faced to earn the save. 

Naamans had just four hits on the night, but Haines helped his own cause with a two-run single in the three-run fourth. It was the only hit in the inning as the Delaware champs took advantage of two walks and a hit batter. 

Glassboro had seven hits in the game, but couldn't capitalize. The local squad left nine runners on base, including having the tying run at the plate in both the fifth and seventh innings. But Ryan worked his way out of both jams. 

Mike Maldonado led the offense for Glassboro, going 2-for-3 on the night.
