Nally, Northeast prevail, 13-1

April 15, 1993|By Tom Worgo | Tom Worgo,Contributing Writer

It must have been a game Northeast pitcher Ed Nally loved, as the senior left-hander had a chance to face his old team yesterday in Glen Burnie.

The senior transferred from the Gophers in the off-season, and his former teammates booed him early in the game.

Nally got revenge, throwing a four-hitter and leading Northeast (3-3) to a 13-1 rout over host Glen Burnie (1-3).

'I thought I pitched pretty well," said Nally, who struck out eight, walked four and gave up one earned run. 'My curveball and slider helped me out. I shut down their good hitters [Todd Locklear, Shawn Mahaney and Keith Volkman]. But I walked too many people.

'We have a lot of new players. In the beginning, our hitting was shaky. But it's coming around. We have the pitchers. When the defense and fielding are good, we will win."

Yesterday, the fielding and hitting were excellent, as Northeast didn't make an error and racked five Glen Burnie pitchers for 12 hits.

Glen Burnie starter Jay Sponaugle, who retired the first six batters in which he struck out three, was removed in the third inning after yielding four hits and two walks. Sponaugle gave up six earned runs and took the loss.

Nally also shined at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a single, double and RBI, and Eagles catcher Robert Miller went 2-for-4 with three RBI.

Miller knocked in two runs with a single to highlight a seven-run, seven-hit third inning.
