WASHINGTON, D.C. – McDaniel exploded for 17 runs and the pitching staff allowed just one hit in a 17-0 victory at Gallaudet in non-conference baseball action on Tuesday.

Brad Thaxton (Stevensville, Md./DeMatha) threw four no-hit innings for the Green Terror (1-1) with four strikeouts to earn the win in a game that was called after seven innings due to darkness.

T.J. McGuire (Blue Point, N.Y./Bayport-Blue Point) led the offense with three hits and two RBIs as part of a 15-hit outburst.

Ryan Gilbert notched the only hit for the Bison (2-7-1) with a pinch-hit single in the bottom of the sixth.

DJ Biscoe (Millersville, Md./Old Mill) roped a one-out triple to the gap in the top of the first before scoring on a two-out error for the game's first run.

With the bases loaded and one run already across in the second after four walks, Antonio Rosanova (Laurel, Md./DeMatha) cleared the bases with a two-out triple for a 5-0 lead.

Colin Franke (Highland Mills, N.Y./Cornwall Central) keyed a three-run third with a two-out, two-run double.

Kasey Nelson (St. Pete Beach, Fla./St. Michaels [Md.]) singled to lead off the fourth before Tim Griest (Lititz, Pa./Warwick) followed with a two-run home run to left-center for a 10-0 lead.

After a four-run fifth, Austin Fry (Sunbury, Pa./Shamokin) capped the scoring with a two-run single in the sixth for the 17-0 lead.

Rosanova and Griest added two hits apiece. Rosanova added four RBIs while Fry drove in three. Franke, Griest, McGuire and Tom Daly (Haddon Heights, N.J./Haddon Heights) had two RBIs apiece.

The Green Terror returns to action in the opener of its eight-game trip to the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in Winter Haven, Fla., with a doubleheader against Curry on Saturday. The first game begins at 5 p.m.
