So much for momentum....
tomorrow remarks my return to the ballpark, but for now here's another generic recap.
New Jersey 3, North Shore 1
@Lynn, MA. Time: 2:39 Attendance: 2424
W: Demetrius Banks (2-0) L: Joey Siak (1-1) S: Rusty Tucker (4)
HR: NJ-Sandy Madera (2)
Starting New Jersey pitcher Demetrius Banks picked up his second win of the season against North Shore. Banks pitched seven innings and allowed one run on eight hits while striking out four Spirit batters. The Jackals got two runs from 3B Wilton Veras, who went 3-for-4 on the night. Every North Shore batter picked up a hit, but only CF BJ Weed scored. Weed crossed home plate on a LF Darren Blakely sacrifice fly in the first inning to give North Shore an early 1-0 lead. But New Jersey had one-run innings in the second, fourth and seventh to take the victory.
