Last weekend Towson University hosted a double header between two of the premier summer and fall programs in the state. The Mid-Atlantic Red Sox and FTB Mid-Atlantic squared off in front of several college scouts and PBR Maryland was there to cover it. Arms dominated game one and the Mid-Atlantic Red Sox manufactured the only run of the ballgame in the top of the first inning and held on for the 1-0 win. The bats came alive In game two of the double header as the Mid-Atlantic Red Sox stormed out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. FTB Mid-Atlantic responded with an 8-run top of the second and went on to take game two 11-3.
