Wild Things Edge Paints

June 16, 2004 - Frontier League (FL) - Washington Wild Things News Release

Washington, PA– The Washington Wild Things, presented by Washington Federal Savings Bank, used Matt Powell’s seven innings of four-hit, shutout baseball, and B.J. Borsa’s seventh save of the season to edge the Chillicothe Paints, 1-0, at Falconi Field Wednesday night.

The victory moves the Wild Things’ winning streak to a season-high four games and puts their record at 15-10. The loss drops the Paints to 12-12.

The Wild Things broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the sixth when Jon Cahill singled in Randy McGarvey. That would be all the scoring Washington would need, as Powell (3-0) gave way to Borsa in the eighth, and he pitched the final two innings without allowing a hit and striking out four.

Brian Stoecklein led Washington with a single and double. His squad out hit the Paints by a 7-4 margin and managed to survive three errors in the field.

Paint’s starter Mark Hamilton took his fourth loss of the season despite pitching eight innings and allowing just one run.

The Wild Things saluted the Wheeling Stogies by wearing throw-back jerseys and hats in the game. Tom Rooney, nephew of former Stogies’ stars Art and Dan Rooney, led a crowd of 3,055 in “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

Before the game, the Wild Things signed right-handed pitcher Doug Lantz. Lantz was drafted in the 14th round by the Cleveland Indians in 2001. He went 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA with Kinston (A) in 2003.

The Wild Things will try for a series sweep of Chillicothe Thursday night. Game time is scheduled for 7:05 p.m., and tickets are still available. Tickets can be purchased by visiting or by calling the ticket office at 1-886-456-WILD.
