Halama's Gem Sinks Sharks, 5-2

Barnstormers lefty John Halama went the distance against the Riversharks this afternoon, allowing two runs on eight hits while striking out seven.

Lancaster got to 'Sharks starter Mike McGuire early. In the 2nd, Brad Boyer tripled to score Ryan Harvey, and Jaime Pedroza singled in Boyer to take a 2-0 lead.

The 'Stormers tacked on two more runs in the 4th when a sac fly from Francisco Hernandez scored Blake Gailen, and Adam Godwin's single to left scored Boyer.

Camden's only runs came in the bottom of the 5th, after a series of errors by Lancaster infielders Paddy Matera and Steven Doetsch both scored, cutting the 'Sharks deficit in half at 4-2.

The 'Stormers added an insurance run in the 8th, when Boyer again singled in Ryan Harvey, making it 5-2.

The win marked a milestone for Barnstormers manager Butch Hobson, as he notched his 1500 win in pro ball.
