Majewski gets 50th save in Skeeters 21-1 win
Sugar Land’s pitching staff kept Southern Maryland to just one run on three hits last night, as closer Gary Majewski captured his 50th career save as a Skeeter in the club’s 2-1 win at Regency Furniture Stadium.
Starter Michael Nix (1-1) threw 5.0 solid innings to earn his first win of the year, allowing just two hits in the outing. Relievers Chris Smith (1.2,0,0,0,2,0) and Ben Kozlowski (1.1,0,0,0,0,2) then combined for 3.0 innings of scoreless work, setting up the save opportunity for bullpen leader and veteran Majewski.
In his first appearance with the club since a brief stint in the Mexican League this spring, Majewski (1.0,1,0,0,0,2) entered the game in the ninth and allowed his first batter on base with a single to shortstop. The runner advanced to second on a passed ball but didn’t threaten for long, as Majewski then picked him off with a sharp throw to second baseman Brandon Wood. The Houston native struck out his next two batters to preserve the win and take his 50th save in a Skeeter uniform.
First baseman Delwyn Young (3×4, 2RBI) led the bugs at the plate with a three-hit night and drove in the team’s two runs in the third with a double to left field. Left fielder Rusty Ryal (1×4) and DH Nick Stavinoha (1×4) each had one knock against the Blue Crabs, while shortstop Dominic Ramos (1×4, R) also kept his current streak alive. Ramos continues to lead the club with a .417 average and has now reached base safely in 11 of his 12 games this season.
