Team Pennsylvania Concludes Action at PBR Future Games

By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

Team Pennsylvania completed play at the 2016 PBR Future Games with a pair of shutout wins over Team Ontario (4-0) and over Team Michigan (3-0). The story of the day was the pitching staff. Seven Team PA pitchers combined for 14 scoreless innings in the two wins. All told the seven pitchers that toed the rubber for Pennsylvania combined to throw 20 scoreless innings out of the 21 total innings played. The lone runs allowed were unearned in a four run 6th inning that led to a 4-3 loss at the hands of Team Ohio on August 5.

Equally as impressive was the effort from four Team PA pitchers in the win over Team Ontario. Travis Perry, Dillon Marsh, Adam Schwartz and Adam Grintz combined on a one-hit shutout with just one walk allowed. The four combined to face the minimum as both base runners were erased by pick-off.

Also of note on Day 3 was the defense. Team Pennsylvania played error free baseball over 14 innings in support of their pitchers. Over three games the defense impressed committing just the two errors in the game one loss to Ohio.

The Team PA defense registered five double plays over three games, had two outfield assists and catcher Cole Chesnet threw out two base runners.

Justin Williams (2-2), Adam Smith (1-2, RBI), Justin Wright (2-2) and Nick Parker (1-2, 3B) led the Pennsylvania offense in the win over Ontario. Eric Grintz (1-3, 3B, R), Kyler Fedko (1-2, 3B, R) and Marsh (1-2, 3B, R) fueled the offense in the win over Michigan.
