Norwell defeats Bluffton... Twice

An excellent headline, that: "Norwell defeats Bluffton... Twice!" I really enjoyed typing it out. The Knights move to 13-10 on the season and the Tigers fell to 6-12-1 (what's with the "1," there's no tying in baseball!).

The first game was a seven-inning pitcher's duel between Norwell's Caleb McAfee and Bluffton's Jarred Carpenter.

McAfee came out on top with the shutout, holding the Tigers to two hits. He struck out eight batters, walked two and hit one. McAfee threw about 50 pitches through three innings, but he settled down over the next four.

"I thought he got stronger as the game went on and mixed the pitches well," said [Coach] Weybright.

Well done!
