Andrew Armstrong was stellar for the Philly Fightin' Quakers on Tuesday, pitching six strong innings and striking out 11 to lead his team to a 7-6 win over the Philly Mummers at Skip Wilson Field. 
Armstrong, a right-hander from Truman High School who recently completed his freshman year at Bloomsburg, struggled with control in his first collegiate season, issuing 21 walks over 17 innings. On Tuesday, he was in command, throwing 62 of his 97 pitches for strikes. 
This type of outing is exactly what the Philly Select Collegiate League aims for, providing local talent the opportunity to hone their skills and improve. 
The Mummers took an early 3-0 lead in the third inning, but the Fightin' Quakers answered with seven runs in the fourth. Only two of those runs came on hits, while three were forced home on two-out walks, one scored on a passed ball, and another on a wild pitch. 
The Fightin' Quakers managed just three hits on the evening, while Mummers' pitching combined to issue 13 walks. 
In the final frame, the Mummers mounted a comeback, scoring three runs off reliever Dan Errigo (Holy Family), aided by an error from shortstop Brooks Henderson. Errigo secured the save by shutting the door with the tying run on second base and the winning run on first. 
Alex Dardaris (Abington/Washington) and RJ Agriss (North Penn/Elizabethtown) each collected two hits for the Mummers, while Ty Pan (Central Bucks East/Ursinus) contributed two RBIs. 
The two clubs will conclude their three-game series on Thursday at Skip Wilson Field in Ambler.
