Week Two: Comets split with Expansion Generals

GAME ONE:  Generals 15, Comets 14

The Comets never say die attitude was on display again this Sunday at Boyce Field in Roxborough. The Comets scored six runs in the sixth inning an four more runs in the seventh inning to keep the Generals nervous.

Behind those rallies were a two-run double from Andrew Dean and a pinch-hit RBI single from Brian Chernuta. Gavin White had three hits and 4 RBIs in the loss as Comets defense and pitching could not hold of the Generals in the bottom of the seventh inning.

While the Comets will rebound from the loss, they will miss center fielder Dennis Rudzinski, who was injured in the sixth inning of the contest. They Comets cannot wait to have the rookie back healthy to be a spark to the squad in the playoffs.

GAME TWO: Comets 11, Generals 5

Jason Rompola was back to the mound again to help the Comets rebound from a toss Game One loss. Rompola allowed five unearned runs in the third inning, while the other six frames were scoreless. Rompola struck out seven Generals. He also had two hits in the win.

Matt Allen drove in three runs and JR Llanot made his 2016 debut with a pair of hits of his own, including a nice grab in right field.

The Comets host the Muckdogs this week, who enter Week Three sporting a 4-0 record.
