WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – Matthew Bodnar (Douglasville, Pa./Central Catholic) went 4-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored to pace McDaniel in a 16-4 victory over Lawrence at the 2011 RussMatt Central Florida Invitational on Wednesday.

Trailing 2-1, Bodnar led off the visitor third with a single before a Kline single put runners at first and second.

Marshall Betts (Berlin, Md./Stephen Decatur) followed with a sacrifice before a Patrick Christopher (Union Beach, N.J./St. John Vianney) RBI groundout scored Bodnar. An error allowed Kline to score as well for a 3-2 lead.

In the fourth, Matthew Pace (Baltimore, Md./North County) rapped a one-out double before a Chris Longo (Monroe, N.Y./Monroe-Woodbury) followed with a single to put runners at the corners.

A pickoff attempt and ensuing rundown allowed Pace to score for a 4-2 lead.

With one out in the fifth, Christopher and Jimmy Najera (Fort Washington, Md./DeMatha) drew walks around a James Chiorello (East Windsor, N.J./Lawrenceville Prep) RBI double.

With two outs, a Longo single scored Chiorello before Ryan Byrnes (New City, N.Y./Clarkstown North) triple cleared the bags for an 8-2 lead.

A Marc Linger walk, Barthelmess single and Gabe Henriques sacrifice fly made it a 8-3 game in the bottom of the inning.

With one out in the eighth, Byrnes was hit by a pitch before moving to second on a passed ball and scoring on a Bodnar single.

Kline followed with a single of his own to put runners at the corners before stealing second.

A Betts sacrifice fly scored Bodnar. Christopher and Chiorello followed with RBI knocks of their own, including a double by Chiorello.

Najera drew a walk before Chiorello was able to score on a Pace RBI single for a 13-3 lead.

A Davide Harris one-out single and three walks in the bottom of the eighth made it a 13-4 game before the Green Terror tacked on three in the ninth for the final margin.

Byrnes led off with a double before back-to-back singles from Bodnar and Kline scored Byrnes.

A Christopher RBI double and Chiorello RBI groundout scored the final runs.
