Tony Gammon pitched outstanding baseball July 1, helping Hamilton top Brookfield East at home in a Greater Metro Conference game, 4-0, one of two victories on the week for the Chargers as the WIAA postseason looms.

Hamilton scored two runs in the bottom of the third inning against Brookfield East. Jack Geels led off the inning with a double before Trevor Wesline knocked in his teammate with a double. Kelton Corcoran scored Wesline on a base hit.

The Chargers scored two more runs in the home half of the sixth inning. Mitch Hlava hit a one-out double, and Alec McShane followed with a two-out, two-run home run.

Gammon pitched all seven innings, allowing five hits while striking out three.

"This was a complete game for us," Hamilton coach Mike Schramek said. "Tony was outstanding on the mound, and defensively we made all the plays we needed to. Offensively, we came up with some clutch hits to solidify the win."

In a makeup game on July 2, the Chargers lost against West Allis Central, 9-3.

Alex Fischer pitched into the fourth inning, giving up six hits and six earned runs, striking out six while walking four. Jake Fischer pitched the rest of the way for Hamilton.

"I give West Allis Central credit, they took control of the game in the third inning and never gave up control," Schramek said.

Ryan Warzon had two hits, including a double, against the Bulldogs.

Against Waukesha West on July 5, the Chargers won convincingly, 12-2. Gammon started against the Wolverines, pitching 3 1/3 innings. He walked three, allowing only two hits and two earned runs.

"Tony was not at his best today but battled each of the three innings he was in there," Schramek said. "I was proud of his effort."

Hamilton broke the game open against the Wolverines with six runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. Ben Kinowski had a sacrifice fly, CJ Leffingwell posted an RBI single and the big blow, a bases clearing triple, came from Michael Barnes.

The Chargers scored five runs in the bottom of the fifth, highlighted by a two-run single from Warzon, to go along with some control problems from Waukesha West pitchers.

"I was really proud of the way we hit the ball on Saturday," Schramek said. "Offense has been our strength all year, and today it proved to be the difference in the game."

The Chargers are playing in the Greater Metro Conference Tournament this week, then visit host Pewaukee in a makeup game July 9. On July 15, the WIAA postseason begins.

Hamilton is 9-14 overall and finished with a 7-11 record in the Greater Metro Conference.
