Logan Shifflett

“We got behind 5-0 and they had Tucker Chamberlin on the mound,” G-A coach Eric Shaner. “We showed good character to give ourselves a shot at the end.”

Chamberlin pitched 5.2 innings and struck out 12 Blue Devils.

“Having that many strikeouts just squelches too many possible rallies,” Shaner said.

Aiden Grudzinski had two singles and an RBI for Greencastle (1-1, 0-1 MPC), and Darren Kline, Carter Reid and Logan Shifflett each had one hit.

Jace Szaflarski started and took the loss for the Blue Devils.

“Shippensburg only had four hits and none were hit that hard,” Shaner said. “But they made the plays and we played shoddy defense. We have to clean things up.”
