Hagerstown Braves pitcher Deron Crawford allowed four hits in 6 1/3 innings and the Hagerstown Braves shut out the Brunswick Orioles 2-0 in Game 1 of the Blue Ridge Adult League championship series Saturday at North Hagerstown.
Nate Reeser's two-run double in the third inning were the only runs Crawford (4-1) needed, as he outdueled Brunswick starter Scott Frye.
"Some days are good and other days are lucky," Crawford said. "This was a day that I was lucky. I didn't have good stuff today. They hit a couple of balls hard with guys on base. I was fortunate that they hit them right at people."
"Deron really gutted it out for us today," Braves manager Danny Cunningham said. "After the first two innings, he settled down and found the strike zone."
