Jay Dimler reaches Susquehanna League milestone in York Township's win vs. Felton


It was not a vintage Jay Dimler performance.

It was good enough, however, to reach a Susquehanna League milestone.

The 54-year-old York Township right-hander picked up his 150th career triumph on Thursday evening with a complete-game effort in an 8-7 triumph over Felton at Shryock Field. He is now the winningest pitcher in league history.

Dimler gave up 10 hits while striking out two and walking four in a 102-pitch effort. He did not give up a run over his final three innings.

Dimler got plenty of support from his teammates, who pounded out 10 hits. 

Township trailed 7-3 after 3 1/2 innings, but rallied for the win, scoring three runs in the bottom of the seventh to walk off with the victory. The three runs in the seventh included two RBI hit-by-pitches. The winning run scored on an RBI single from Andy Freeburger, who finished with two hits and three RBIs.
