Skipjacks extend winning streak to six games
Chesapeake rallies from 3-1 deficit to down Montgomery/Rockville

ROCKVILLE – Winning can be its own reward.

"It’s fun," said Chesapeake College head baseball coach Frank Szymanski Wednesday after his team’s sixth straight win, a 10-4 victory over host Montgomery College Rockville. "We’re working hard every day in practice to get better and it’s showing up in the games. We’re getting the job done."

The Skipjacks (15-5 overall, 6-1 Maryland JuCo) got the job done Wednesday by erasing a 3-1, fourth-inning deficit. Zach Larson (2-for-5) had a run-scoring single during a game-tying, two-run fourth; Nick Beall (2-for-5) and Richie McMahon (3-for-4, two RBI, two doubles) then delivered run-scoring hits during a three-run fifth that gave Chesapeake a 6-3 lead.

Billy Felo went 3-for-4 with an RBI for the Skipjacks, who finished with 14 hits, and teammate Adams Chambers added a run-scoring single.

That was plenty of offensive support for winning pitcher Danny Miller and reliever Joe Garrity, who earned the save by pitching the final three innings. Miller gave up four hits over the first two innings as Rockville built its 3-1 lead, but just two hits over four shutout innings to finish his six-inning outing.

"They (Rockville) came out swinging the bats," said Szymanski. "Once we settled down, the pitching really came through."

Miller struck out four and walked one while giving up six hits over six innings. Garrity allowed three hits and two walks with three strikeouts over the final three innings, yielding just one run.

Chesapeake, which hosts the College of Southern Maryland Thursday at 3 p.m., is among the early season leaders in Maryland JuCo. Frederick Community College (23-2, 9-0) and CCBC-Catonsville (19-6, 8-0) are the final two unbeaten teams in league play, while Chesapeake and Hagerstown Community College (17-6, 4-1) each have just one league loss.
