Dogs record first shutout of season, win 6-0 Print E-mail

WILSON, N.C. - The SwampDogs broke out with two home runs in the third inning against Quinn Atwood, and they were able to defeat the Wilson Tobs 6-0 on Monday night at Historic Fleming Stadium.

David LaFleur dug in to lead off the top of the third inning against Atwood, and hit a no-doubt shot out to left-centerfield that cleared the scoreboard to put the Dogs up 1-0.  Three batters later, David Palenzuela connected on a monstrous two-run home run to right-centerfield that hit high atop the 20-foot advertising wall to put the SwampDogs up 3-0.

The Dogs would scratch through again with a run in the sixth inning against reliever Daniel Batts.  Brandon Metoyer led the inning off with a single, then advanced to second on a stolen base. After a single by LaFleur, Jason Blum drove home Metoyer with a base hit.  Lane Paul would be intentionally walked next to load the bases, and Batts was removed in favor of Dylan Frye.

Frye was able to retire the side, and would work a perfect seventh inning to keep the score right where it was.

The Dogs would add two unearned runs in the eighth inning, after a walk to LaFleur and a throwing error from Taylor Nichols put runners on the corners with one out.  Paul then came up to the plate and grounded out to second base to bring home LaFleur.  Blum would be brought home after Palenzuela lined a Jonathan Waszak offering to left field to make it 6-0.

The real story of the game, though, was the SwampDogs pitching.

Nick Harman went the first six innings for the 'Dogs, allowing just four hits while walking two and striking out five in his first start of the season.  He was originally slotted to get the start Friday night at Morehead City, then again on Saturday against the Asheboro Copperheads, but both of those games were washed out by Mother Nature.

Hunter Barnett, Hasten Freeman, and Deshorn Lake were able to combine to throw three scoreless frames in the seventh, eighth and ninth to shut the door and the victory for the SwampDogs.  It was the first shutout of the season by the SwampDogs, who are now at the .500 mark at 10-10.

The SwampDogs return home Tuesday to take on the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team at 7:05 pm.  For tickets and more information call 426-5900.
