The DC Grays traveled to Glen Burnie to play a double header on Friday against Youse’s Orioles — but unfortunately the Grays’ bats stayed home. The Grays were shut out twice — dropping the first game 4-0 and the second game 1-0. Their record now stands at 6-8 for the season.
Grays starting pitcher Colin Kelly (Catholic) gave up only three hits in five innings, but unfortunately, one of them was a three-run homer, and that was all the Orioles needed in the opener. The Orioles scored another run on a Grays’ error in the second inning.
The second game of the evening was closer, as the Grays wasted another good pitching performance. Tyler Shamas (Mitchell) gave up three hits in six innings in his first start with the Grays. The Grays bats were virtually silent yet again, though — the team collected only seven hits in the twinbill.
The Grays continue their stretch of road games on Saturday when they travel to Herndon to face the FCA Herndon Braves. Harry Thomas (Delaware State) is the expected starting pitcher for the Grays.
