Seidler puts Chesapeake baseball in a good spot –

By the looks of things, unless you wear the colors blue and gold and have the letters SP on your cap, it may be hard to defeat the Chesapeake baseball team.

River Hill found that out on Friday, as the Hawks came to Pasadena to face the Cougars, who have only lost to Severna Park this season, and after a dominating performance by Chesapeake ace Joe Seidler and clutch hits by shortstop Dillon Oxyer and catcher Tommy McNamara, the Hawks headed back to Howard County a 5-0 loser to the Class 3A East Region title winner.

Chesapeake will play C. Milton Wright, the North Region winner, at either 4 or 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Joe Cannon Stadium in the state semifinals.

Seidler, who was effective but not brilliant, spotted his fastball well in throwing the complete-game shutout, allowing three hits, two hit batsmen and only one walk, while striking out four on 90 pitches. Of the 27 batters he faced, he threw first-pitch strikes to 20 of them and finished throwing 63 percent of his pitches for strikes to increase his record to 6-1.
