to pop up to Hampton for the fi­nal out.

“He came into the game in a tough spot and wasn’t phased by it,” Nadol­sky said. “He came in there and threw strikes and let the de­fense make the plays. We’ve had games where we scored runs and didn’t get

much pitch­ing or play good de­fense and we’ve had others where we pitched well and played good de­fense, but we didn’t score.”

North Point promptly got both runs back in the bot­tom of the sixth. Kevon Whar­ton drew a one­out walk, took sec­ond on a wild pitch, went to third on a ground­out by Patrick Estevez then scored on another wild pitch. Hampton reached on an er­ror, Du­lany

and Davis walked to load the bases, then Doss was hit by a pitch to force in a run.

“We prob­a­bly gave them three or four un­earned runs,” Lackey head coach Tim McG­lynn said. “I thought Isa­iah pitched

well. We didn’t make all the plays be­hind him. It’s been like that most of the sea­son. We haven’t played good de­fense. Isa­iah pitched well, he just made two mis­takes to the same bat­ter.”

Lackey scored an un­earned run against North

Point re­liever Clarence Hutchinson in the top of the sev­enth. Devin Con­ner reached on a lead­off er­ror by Estevez at short, went to sec­ond on a ground­out and scored on a two-out sin­gle by Hill. Hutchinson promptly fanned Jones to end the game and earn the save.

The Charg­ers are sched­uled to be at La Plata at 4:30 p.m. Fri­day, while North Point is slated to re­turn to ac­tion at 4:30 p.m. Mon­day at Thomas Stone.
