Decatur baseball shuts out Pocomoke

(March 29, 2013) The Stephen Decatur baseball team kicked off the 2013 season with a 14-0 shutout over the Pocomoke Warriors last Friday on the Seahawks’ home field in Berlin.

Pitcher Lane Dillon, a freshman newcomer to the Decatur squad, threw a one-hitter for the game’s five innings (10-run slaughter rule). He struck out five and walked three Pocomoke players.

Veteran Dallas Harrington, a senior and three-year member of the team, led the Seahawks on offense, going 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles.

“Since we lost four great seniors and a lot of leadership, I feel like I have a big role to fill leading the younger kids … show them what they need to do and how to play the game right, the SD baseball way – just fundamentals, always having a good attitude and always respecting the game,” Harrington said after the team’s March 15 practice.

Coach Rich Ferro was pleased with the Seahawks’ performance in the season opener.

“Overall, Dillon was really good on the mound and we played defense behind him. Offensively, we had good at-bats and were selective,” he said.

The Washington Jaguars will travel to Berlin on Tuesday to face the Seahawks at 4 p.m.
