Flemington falls to Elkton at the Shore
Cape May, NJ– In a match that took up to 5 hours to get to and 1 1/2 to play, the Flemington Neshanock took on the Elkton Eclipse in its traditional 4th of July Weekend Match at Cold Spring Village in Cape May, New Jersey. The Neshanock last year lost 35-10, but this year things were much closer.
In the only game scheduled involving MAVBBL clubs this weekend, the Neshanock and Eclipse played a close match for the first 5 innings as the score remained 3-3 after 5. The Eclipse then started to pull away despite the slendiferous pitching effort by one Brad Shaw. After the Elkton club scored 5 and the Neshanock only 1 the next frame, the Marylanders started to pull away and finished strong to win 15-6 at the Cold Spring Village’s Independence Weekend Celebration. The Eclipse lead the series 3-0 after 3 straight wins outside of Cape May in three years.
