May 29, 1994|By Mike Jefferson


The 13-14 Harford Sox split a doubleheader with EDRECO last Saturday, losing the first game, 6-5, but winning the second game, 10-0.

In the first game, EDRECO held the Sox to four hits through five innings. A late rally fell short, and EDRECO held on for the win.

In the second game, Sox pitcher Danny Green took his record to 3-0 with a one-hit shutout. He struck out seven and walked two.

The Sox showed early they were not going to crumble. In the first inning, a strong defensive play occurred with a man on third and one out. A fly ball was hit to center fielder Eric Shank who made the play and rifled the ball to catcher Josh Mawhinney, who made the tag at home for the inning-ending double play.

The Sox hitting attack was led by Chris Reynolds (3-for-3, one RBI), Joey Criss (2-for-3, one RBI) and Green (2-for-4, four RBIs). Brad Glascock, Shank, Paul Isbell and Chad Blevins all contributed hits.

On Sunday, the Sox lost, 5-4, to Yankee Rebels Gold. Mawhinney took a tough loss while recording 15 strikeouts in seven innings.
