Orange Post 127’s Doug Rives (22) pitched eight innings, but providing enough offense to notch a victory proved difficult Saturday, as Orange Post 127 fell to Hamden 2-1 in this post season game at Brinley Field.
Mitchell got the win for Hamden. He allowed one run over eight innings. He struck out 12, walked three and surrendered five hits.
Rives ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss.
Hamden closer Rodriguez put away the final three outs to record the save.
The game was never in doubt after the third, as Hamden scored one run on.
In the fifth inning, Orange Post 127 pushed across its only run of the day on an RBI single by Lou DeGennero (3).
