(April 17, 2015) The Stephen Decatur baseball team has taken down each Bayside Conference opponent it has faced in 2015.
The Seahawks improved to 8-0 on Monday after their 16-3 five-inning victory over the Mardela Warriors in Mardela Springs.
Decatur scored four in the first inning and tacked on five runs in the second. The Seahawks added a run in the third inning and two in the fourth. They tallied four runs in the fifth inning.
Junior Zach Adams had two hits and three RBIs. Senior Justin Meekins chipped in with two hits, one of which was a home run. He finished with three RBIs. Junior Will Sass had a double and a home run with two RBIs.
Senior Sean Colgan pitched three innings and struck out seven. Brooks Holloway, a senior, threw two innings. He struck out two Warriors, walked one and gave up three runs. Only one run was earned.
“We played well. We had a good approach at the plate and squared some pitches up,” said Decatur Coach Rich Ferro. “Colgan and Holloway threw strikes and we played solid defense. We need to stay aggressive and keep working to get better.”
Decatur is scheduled to travel to Crisfield to play the Crabbers today, Friday, at 4 p.m. The Seahawks will host the Snow Hill Eagles on Monday at 4 p.m.
