(March 27, 2015) The Stephen Decatur baseball team shut out the Mardela Warriors 11-0 on Monday in the first game of 2015 on its home field in Berlin.
“We were a little rusty. We’re swinging the bat OK. We’ve just got to be more consistent, but it’s the first game so we’ll see what happens,” said Decatur Coach Rich Ferro. “There weren’t a whole lot of hits. We just played good defense and pitched and that was the key.”
The Seahawks scored two runs in the first and two in the fourth.
Senior Austin Dundore drove in two runs in the sixth inning to boost Decatur’s advantage to six. He finished the game with three hits.
Decatur tacked on five additional runs in the inning to win the game by slaughter rule.
Senior Sean Colgan threw five innings. He struck out 11, allowed one hit and walked one.
“Sean Colgan was great on the mound,” Ferro said.
Freshman Tristan McDonough took over for the last inning. He struck out two Warriors.
Before spring break, Decatur is scheduled to play back-to-back games Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Seahawks will travel to Snow Hill on Monday to take on the Eagles. They will head to Salisbury the next day to face off against the Parkside Rams. On April 1, the James M. Bennett Clippers will come to Berlin for competition against Decatur. Games start at 4 p.m.
