THE SKINNY STORY
Haverford rallied late to capture game one before breaking open game two late to sweep McDaniel. The Fords took game one 3-2 and completed the sweep, 11-0.
• Tim Griest (Warwick, Pa./Lititz) led the Green Terror with four hits on the day, including a 3-for-4 game one.
• Robbie Mays (Parkton, Md./Hereford) went the distance on the mound in the opener with seven strikeouts and one earned run allowed, scattering seven hits.
FOR THE FOES
• Will Karp led the Fords with four hits on the day.
THE REST OF THE STORY
• In game one, a two-out throwing error and Tim Griest single to left field scored DJ Biscoe (Millersville, Md./Old Mill) for a 1-0 lead first-inning lead.
• Colin Franke (Highland Mills, N.Y./Cornwall Central) drew a walk to lead off the fifth before moving to second on a wild pitch and scoring on a one-out Biscoe single.
• Will Karp led off the sixth inning with a home run to left field to cut the deficit in half.
• With one out in the eighth, Nick Perez reached on an error before a Karp single put two on with one out. Ethan Lee-Tyson followed with a double to score Perez but the Green Terror threw out Karp at the plate to keep the game tied. Harrison Burns, however, singled to scored Lee-Tyson with the go-ahead run.
• Jarod Pezzano (Stevensville, Md./Kent Island) drew a walk to lead off the ninth inning before moving to second on a sacrifice. A pair of flyouts, however, preserved the win for Andrew Johnson.
• In game two, the two teams combined for just four baserunners before Zach Landry led off the home fifth with a single up the middle. An error and Jared Turner single staked Haverford to a 1-0 lead.
• Back-to-back singles from Lee-Tyson and Harrison Burns put runners at the corners. A Luke Wallis squeeze bunt made it 2-0 before Owen Plambeck singled home Burns for a 3-0 lead.
• Wallis reached on an error to start the eighth inning before Plambeck went year for a 5-0 lead. Three straight hit batters loaded the bases for Perez, who poked a two-run single to left. A wild pitch, Karp single and balk made it 9-0 before a second error and Plambeck double set the final margin.
THE INSIDE STORY
• In addition to the Tim Griest's three hits, Tom Daly (Haddon Heights, N.J./Haddon Heights) also had three hits in game one. Julian Jenkins (Tempe, Ariz./Desert Vista) added two knocks.
• In the nightcap, Nathan Bass and Brandon Jenkins combined on the shutout, fanning 11 batters and allowing just four hits.
