Chapman earns first college win as Alaskans duel in NWAC

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 10, 2015

Anchorage’s Dalton Chapman earned his first college at the expense of another Alaskan.

The freshman righty pitched two scoreless innings of relief as Everett Community College won 7-2 over first-place Edmonds Community College and previously unbeaten starter Brian Way of Sitka.

Chapman [1-2] lowered his ERA to 4.09 in 11 games, although he has pitched better than his numbers suggest.

The 6-foot-5 pitcher has a 2.45 ERA in the nine games he didn’t suffer a losing decision. He also has 22 strikeouts in 22 innings on the year.

Way has been sensational this year and Edmonds had been unbeatable in the 12 previous days he pitched before today.

The 6-foot-7 righty didn’t pitch poorly but suffered his first college loss after allowing 4 runs [two earned] over 5 innings.

Way is now 6-1 with a 1.43 ERA in 13 games. He’s only issued seven walks in 37.2 innings.
