The Comets rallied to force extra innings in the season opener, but failed to come through in the extra frame. The 40-year old rookie Peter Harper poked a double down the right field line to tie the contest in the sixth inning.

Another newcomer John Estok made quick work of the Irish in the seventh inning to force free baseball. Andrew Napoli drove in two runs in the first inning and rookie Dennis "D-Ski" Rudzinski recorded his first two GPMABL hits in the loss.

Manager Andrew Marcus set the new GPMABL record with his second steal of the afternoon, surpassing Ryan Golderer's 82 mark. Marcus now has 85 career steals.

GAME TWO: Comets 8, Irish 0

Jason "J-Romp" Rompola cruised through the Irish order, scattering three hits over a complete game shutout. He fanned 14 batters and added two hits, including a two-run triple.

His battery-mate Andrew Dean had three hits and three RBIs in the first win of the young season. Matt Allen and Rudzinski also had multiple hits in the win.

The Comets will take on the expansion team Germantown Generals next week at Boyce Field in Roxborough.
