(Waldorf, MD. May 24, 2015) – On a bright and sunny 78 degree day at Regency Furniture Stadium, it was RHP Jake Hale that shined the brightest for the Blue Crabs. Hale pitched a complete game, striking out seven, allowing five hits, and walking three in the process to send the Blue Crabs to the 1-0 victory this afternoon.  The Blue Crabs are now 18-12 and sit atop the standings in the Freedom Division.

Southern Maryland got on the board in the bottom of the third.  Daryle Ward led things off with a single to left center field, followed by a Jamar Walton double, and a Casey Frawley walk to load the bases.  The next hitter, Antone DeJesus, drove in Ward with a sacrifice fly to right center field to bring the eventual final score to 1-0.

RHP Shunsuke Watanabe pitched well for Lancaster, going seven innings, allowing a run on three hits, while striking out six and walking two; however, the submarine-style righty couldn’t get any run support from his offense that managed just five hits on the afternoon.

Game four of the four-game series is set to take place tomorrow at Regency Furniture Stadium.  It is a special 1:05 start time in honor of Memorial Day.  RHP Shaun Garceau (1-2, 2.88) will throw for Southern Maryland while LHP Casey Fossum (0-0, 4.50) will pitch for Lancaster.
