senior Cam Charette pitched a complete-game shutout to lead the Generals to their first win of the season on Thursday, 3-0, over the Lynnfield Pioneers.

Charette struck out 10 and held the Pioneers to four hits, while the Generals (1-2) got enough offense to hand Lynnfield (3-1) its first loss.

"It felt good today, my arm felt good," Charette said. "It felt strong and I just threw the fastball nice and good."

Lynnfield was hurt by two errors that allowed the Generals to score two unearned runs.

Despite giving up just the one earned run, Lynnfield senior pitcher Ben Kenrew took the loss.

"Those errors cost us," Lynnfield Coach John O'Brien said.

The Generals scored twice in the top of the second inning, with junior third-baseman Paul DiMarino driving in senior outfielder Mark Petrou on a double that nearly cleared the fence for a homerun.

Generals Coach Doug Hoak said Charette "stepped up" for the team.

"We needed Cam today," Hoak said. "Today was a big game and they're a quality team."
