The Hamilton baseball team is back on track.

The Chargers won at home against West Allis Central on June 11, 6-2, and followed with a 17-5 win over Brookfield East one day later. Tony Gammon pitched a complete game in the first game, striking out seven while walking three. Michael Barnes had a timely two-out, two-run triple in the bottom of the first inning.

Mitch Hlava led off the bottom of the second inning with a double and stole third base before scoring on a wild pitch.

In the bottom of the third inning, Kelton Corcoran singled and advanced on a Bulldogs' throwing error before scoring on a fielder's choice by Barnes. Austin Lee had a run-scoring single, and Barnes tripled in two more runs in the fifth.

Against Brookfield East, Trent Metzger pitched five innings, striking out three while walking three. Drew Schreihart, called up from the junior varsity team, pitched one inning for Hamilton.

Corcoran went 4 for 5. Barnes had three hits and four RBIs. Metzger went 3 for 4 with two RBIs. Alec McShane went 3 for 4 with three runs scored and two RBIs including a home run.

"McShane's home run in the top of the second was what broke it open," Hamilton head baseball coach Mike Schramek said.

Simply put, the Chargers hit well in these games.

"Going into the West Allis Central game, we talked about a team goal we had not had much success with this year — offensively having a big inning," Schramek said. "In the West Allis Central game, three of our six innings were big innings. In the Brookfield East game. five of our six innings were big innings."

And on the flip side, the pitching and defense held foes without such an inning.

"We will have a lot of success for the remainder of the year if we can continue to play baseball that way," Schramek said. "I am so proud of the way the guys responded these past two games. It felt good to play baseball the way we did and win the way we did."

The Chargers (4-9) host Wauwatosa East in a Greater Metro Conference game at 5:30 p.m. June 19. On June 20, the Chargers visit Franklin before returning home against Catholic Memorial for a nonconference game against the Crusaders on June 21.
