When a pitcher is at his best, he's like a riddle with no answer.
Sharpsburg couldn't solve West End pitcher Airin Martin on Monday, losing 13-3 at West End Little League in the Maryland District 1 11-12 Tournament winners' bracket semifinal.
"Airin threw a fine game," said West End manager Bill Nutter. "He's very talented."
Sharpsburg opened the scoring in the bottom of the first. Dalton Stewart scored on a single before Adam McDonald and Alex Wetzel scored on an infield error to give Sharpsburg a 3-0 lead.
But Martin, who took the mound with two outs in the bottom of the first, was in control for the remainder of the game.
