CHARGERS HANDLE RIVAL JAYSSpotswood, NJ - by the Prof In what appeared to be a matchup of aces turned out to be no contest. Steve Curry, one-half of Spotswood's dynamic duo, outdueled Middlesex counterpart Matt Campanella in every facet of the game for a 13-3 mercy-rule victory at the Swamp before a crowd of 120 in Spotswood. Middlesex jumped out to a 1-0 lead with an unearned run in the 1st. The Chargers, lead by Brian Dzuro (2-2, 2 doubles, 2RBI) and the Dubovick brothers once again, answered with 3 in the home 2nd when 5 consecutive batters reached base. The Blue Jays fought back in the 3rd on a two out, broken bat single to knot the score at 3, but that was as close as it would get. Super aggressive baserunning and big hits would touch Campanella with his first loss on 10 hits and 10 runs. Steve Abbott was another culprit, hitting two heavy extra base hits for a double and a triple on the afternoon. Campanella, coming off his 9 inning, 15 K, 1-0 shutout of South River, challenged the wrong bunch of hitters on this day as the Chargers used a variety of ways to score runs and chase him in the 5th. Willie Beard entered the game in the 5th for Spotswood to preserve the victory on 23 pitches. He struck out 5 and walked 1 for the save. Photographs courtesy of Jason Towlen and the Home News Tribune
