Stittsville shuts out Blitz 6-0 with details

from Marcel Mondoux

Wednesday night in the Grove pitted Ottawa Taylor's Blitz and Stittsville 56er's for their final meeting in the regular season. Jamie Blakely and Darren Featherstone started for their respective squads.

Stittsville began their scoring in the first inning. After a flyout, John Craig walked followed by three straight singles off the bats off Scott Herriot, Dan Jessiman (RBI) and Scott Jessiman (RBI) scoring Craig and Herriot. Dan Bradley drove in the 56er's final run of the inning two batters later scoring D Jessiman giving them a three run lead after one.

In the bottom of the second, the 56er's added two more. The first batter was retired on strikes bringing up the top of their order. Featherstone walked and scored on a misplayed infield fly ball which was then thrown away at first scoring Featherstone from first and putting Craig on third. Herriot then scored Craig on the next at bat with a sac fly to center.

Stittsville threatened again in the third but were unable to score any with the bases loaded. Blakely induced a ground ball to short which resulted in a fielder's choice.

In the fifth inning, the 56ers pushed across another run and had a chance to end the game in a mercy. Another ground ball was induced to short with the bases loaded which was nicely scooped by the Blitz first baseman.

The end result was a convincing 6-0 win for Stittsville and a great pitching performance by their pitcher, Featherstone, who pitched seven strong innings aloowing one hit, four walks and striking out eleven Blitz batters. By his performance, Featherstone earns tle Caveman's choice as player of the game.
