Mariner sail to upset

Unheralded Chad Geran (5-1) stole the show from Toms River East Tuesday night as the junior right-hander beat the Raiders, 4-3, denying coach Bill Frank his 400th career win and handing ace Casey Gaynor (5-1) his first defeat while stopping East's 11-game winning streak.

Gaynor struck out 13 but yielded a pair of two-run singles in the second inning which included an error, two walks, and a hit batter.

Ony one run off Geran (five Ks, one walk) was earned.

Regarding the prior blog...still not sure what to make of it. The first poster seems certain the second pitcher takes the loss. The second answer from the rule book seems to indicate the winning run should be charged to the previous pitcher, not the reliever. Where's the Excedrin?

It's been a long night. See you Wednesday!
