Former Broadneck and current University of Maryland Eastern Shore pitcher Nick Gatton recently hurled three shutout innings against the Naval Academy at a see-saw battle in Annapolis. Gatton came in the eighth inning with the score tied at 7 and kept the Midshipmen at bay, allowing just two hits. The Hawks scored twice in the 12th inning for a thrilling 9-7 victory. It was a special homecoming for the Arnold resident, who had a litany of friends and family cheering for him at Bishop Stadium. “It was a gutsy performance from him, pitching three innings of shutout ball,” said interim head coach Shawn Phillips.
