gami8 Bill LeConey/Absegami's Brandon Bowen fires a pitch in the seventh inning as he closes out his complete-game two-hitter. LINWOOD - It was a perfect day for a pitchers duel in chilly, overcast Linwood Thursday, and that's just what Absegami’s Brandon Bowen and Mainland Regional’s Nick Droboniku provided.

But the seventh inning was also a perfect time for the resilient Absegami Braves to show that they can break open close games with patient at-bats and timely hitting.

The Absegami bats finally broke through the chill for a 7-1 victory in a Cape-Atlantic League American Division game at Mainland.

The talented young woman who scored 1,389 points during her all star basketball career at Holy Spirit – hitting the clutch perimeter jumper, spinning through the defense for a layup or throwing a look-away pass - and who then went on to have a successful career at George Mason University, is an anchor and reporter for Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia.

“It sounds like a cliché,” said Daniels, “but it is a dream to be doing this in Philadelphia. These are the teams I watched growing up and to be able to walk onto the ice after a Flyers game or onto the field at a Phillies game was really special. Being at Allen Iverson’s number retirement was great. He was my favorite player growing up. I’m getting used to these things now, because I’m there to do a job, but the first time was really memorable.”

ATLANTIC CITY – Early this season, the Egg Harbor Township Eagles have subsisted mainly with an imbalanced diet of great pitching and little hitting - effective at times but not very nutritious over the long haul.

They finally chose from the full menu Thursday, pounding out an early 7-0 lead and holding on to beat Atlantic City, 10-6, in a Cape-Atlantic League American Division game at the windy Sandcastle.
