E.D. White-based Synergy Bank shutout Halimar Shipyard in a game originally scheduled as a home game for Halimar but was moved to E.D. White.
In Monday’s win, Barron Courtney, Stefano Guarisco and Samuel Guarisco each finished 1-for-3 for Halimar Shipyard, with Courtney adding a double.
Patrick Barron suffered the loss for Halimar (6-4).
While Halimar’s field in Amelia was damaged the day before the home opener and Halimar Shipyard played its first home games on the road, the team had returned to Amelia where it played several home games.
However, Halimar coach Tyler Jensen had a change of heart and felt that while it was safe to play at home, his team should play on the road until more permanent repairs were complete.
Monday would have been the team’s last home game.
