Sophomore Gage Shell spelled T-Bird starter Zak Eckerle with six-plus innings of relief work. What makes the sophomore hurler so unique is his ability to throw with either hand -- likely making him the first ambidextrous pitcher in Eastern Greene baseball or at least in McConnell's tenure as head coach.

"Gage did a great job tonight," McConnell said. "He pitched with both hands at times tonight. He gave us innings and helped save our bullpen. He really did a great job for us tonight." (source:
