In his first start on the bump, Harkey pitched the complete game while scattering just 4 hits, walking 3, striking out 3, and hit 3 batters. But it was at the plate where he truly shined. After struggling for much of this season, the big fella ripped two doubles and a single to drive in two runs. These were his first two extra-base hits of the season.

Senior Michael Clark, running for Hite, was caught stealing before Senior Jake Sodeman contributed another single and Senior Brendan Ring ripped an RBI double to left.

Hite reached base on a Chesapeake error to begin the Seahawk third. After advancing on a Ring ground out, Willson ripped an RBI single up the middle to bring Harkey to the plate again. Once more, he came through with an RBI double off of the base of the fence in left-centerfield.
The Hawks came finished off the scoring in the fourth when Senior Billy Jarboe reached on a Chesapeake error. After a Russell Donaldson ground out, Junior Eric Aumann delivered Jarboe with an RBI single into right field. Hite followed with his second of three singles to move Aumann to third. Aumann scored when Chesapeake was unable to turn the double play on a Sodeman grounder.
Hite and Harkey both had three hits on the day with Harkey having two RBI. Hite, Ring, Willson, and Aumann contributed the balance of the RBI for the game.
The win brought the Seahawk record to 6-2 overall, 3-2 in the county.
