South Hagerstown pitcher Tim Hamilton had a limited dialogue during a seventh-inning visit with his pitching coach Tuesday afternoon.
After surrendering a two-out walk, the Rebels senior simply wanted to end the game on his own terms.
"I just said the game was over," Hamilton said, "I was going to end it on the next pitch."
Hamilton induced the game-ending fielder's choice for the complete game, helping the No. 4 Rebels to a 5-2 victory to remain undefeated.
"I started with a lot of curveballs, but toward the end it was mostly fastballs," said Hamilton (2-0), who scattered four hits and struck out five. "Coming in to that last inning, my arm started hurting and I just wanted to finish it."
The complete game is the third in a row for Rebels pitchers. Tim Leather went the distance in a come-from-behind win at Frederick on April 2 and Brandon Knight pitched a shutout Monday at Middletown.
