Scrappers split in Zimmer’s home debut


Niles, OH (WKBN)- The Scrappers got off to a good start in Game One Wednesday, scoring all five runs in the first two innings of a 5-0 shutout win over Batavia. But they couldn’t follow it up in the second game, with just six hits in a 4-1 loss, as they split the doubleheader with the Muckdogs.

The Indians first round pick Bradley Zimmer made his home debut, going 1-3 with a triple in the bottom of the 4th inning in game one. Zimmer would sit out the night cap.

Sean Brady (1-0) pitched the shutout in game one, allowing just 3 hits in 5.2 IP, with 2 strikeouts and a walk for the Scrappers.

The Scrappers are now 5-8 on the season, and are back at Eastwood Field Thursday for the start of a four game series with Jamestown (4-8).
