Rocket Rolls 15-0 Over E&S; 8-0 on Season

Much like the game vs Carver E&S, this article will be quick. 

Tony Brown led off the game after working a patient Walk and scored two pitches later on Leon Finney's Double in deep Center. That would technically be enough as Lukas Supovitz-Aznar and Kevin Courtney would hold E&S hitless in a 4-inning 15-0 win. The hitless streak for opponents has now reached 13 consecutive innings, and no team has tallied more than 4 hits in a game on the season vs Rocket pitching. 

In his 2nd at-bat in the 1st, Brown hit a hard single up the middle to score two and make it 8-0. Triples by Kristian Ramos, Kevin Courtney and a Double by Kenny Carroll would factor into a 12-hits attack that simply overwhelmed E&S pitching.

Courtney, who would take the mound in relief for the first time since recovering from Tommy John surgery, would finish the day 3-3 with 4RBIs and score the 15th run by tagging up on Ben Simon's deep shot to Center. 

With the win The Rocket is 8-0 on the season and comfortably in first place. With just 4 league games left before the playoffs start in mid-May, the Rockets are poised to move up to A-Division for the 2016-17 season. Next game is a make up vs Ben Franklin on Thurs, 4/28. Come out and support The Rocket. First pitch, 315pm (29th & Chalmers).
