McDaniel raps out 15 hits to dump Washington, 12-1

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Matthew Pace (Baltimore, Md./North County) went 5-for-6 with four RBIs and two runs scored to lead McDaniel to a 12-1 victory over Washington (Md.) in Centennial Conference (CC) baseball action on Sunday.

The Green Terror (10-8, 3-3 CC) took advantage of a pair of fourth-inning errors to break open a 2-1 game with a five-run frame en route to their most lopsided conference game of the season, earning the season split with the Shoremen (13-9, 4-2 CC) in the process.

Freshman Andrew Monger (Ellicott City, Md./Mt. Hebron) went seven strong on the hill for McDaniel, scattering seven hits while striking out two.

Jon Mahaffey was the only Washington player with a multiple-hit day, recording two of the Shoremen's eight hits.

Scoreless through the first two innings even though the Green Terror left the bases loaded in the first inning for the first three of its 14 runners left on base, Sean Cannole led off the top of the third with an infield single.

Nick Marinelli followed with a single of his own on a hit-and-run that put runners at the corners for Ryan Normoyle, whose RBI groundout staked the visitors to a 1-0 lead.

With one out in the bottom of the frame, Marshall Betts (Berlin, Md./Stephen Decatur) recorded the first of his four hits and Pace followed with a single of his own to put runners at first and second.

Ricky LaSota (Burtonsville, Md./Paint Branch) drew a walk to load the bases and Chris Longo (Monroe, N.Y./Monroe-Woodbury) followed with a single down the left-field line to plate Betts and Pace for a 2-1 advantage.

With one out in the fourth, Brandon Kline (Myersville, Md./Middletown) reached on an error before stealing second.

Patrick Christopher (Union Bridge, N.J./St. John Vianney) followed with a rolling ball to short but indecision after Kline crossed in front of him put runners at first and third.

A Betts single into left scored Kline before Pace doubled to the wall in left-center to score Christopher and chase Washington starter Michael Bullock.

Tom Fiala issued a walk to LaSota before Longo dropped a ball into the right-field corner that rolled over the bullpen and out of play for a ground-rule double that allowed just Pace to score.

A Ryan Byrnes (New City, N.Y./Clarkstown North) sacrifice fly plated LaSota to cap the five-run frame for a 7-1 lead.

Tyler Jackow (Colonia, N.J./Colonia) led off the fifth with a single up the middle before back-to-back one-out singles from Christopher and Betts stretched the lead to 8-1.

A Pace double scored Christopher, chasing Fiala this time.

With Jackow on third and Kline on first and two outs in the bottom of the sixth, Kline took off before Ben Cameron had released the ball but was successful in getting in a rundown to allow Jackow to swipe home for the 10th run of the game.

A Jackow walk and Kline single in the eighth followed by a Pace two-out single through the right side capped the scoring.

Kline and Longo finished with two-hit outings. Longo added three RBIs. LaSota drew three walks.

The Green Terror returns to action at home against No. 16 Johns Hopkins on Tuesday. Game time is 3:30 p.m.
