Salamanders Shutdown SwampDogs

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.—Matt Frisbee (UNC Greensboro) retired the final sixteen batters of the game and the Salamanders put up three runs in the fourth give their starter all he needed as the SwamDogs fell 8-3 at home Tuesday night.

Frisbee allowed three runs over the first three innings as the SwampDogs held two separate leads early. But after a single by Tristen Gagan (Southeast Missouri) in the fourth, Frisbee did not allow another base runner the rest of the game.

Frank Fraschetti (Harford CC) started in his SwampDog debut and was solid for the first three innings before getting into trouble in the fourth inning.

Peter Moore worked two scoreless innings in relief for the SwampDogs to keep the defect at five.

Frisbee exceeded his season total of eight innings pitched, with the complete game effort, to earn the win and improve to 2-1 on the year. Fraschetti is saddled with the loss in his debut to fall to 0-1.

The SwampDogs hit the road to take on the Edenton Steams Wednesday night before returning home Thursday and Friday.
