Post One was down early when Middletown’s big left handed hitter Zach Sophy who doubled to left center field driving in two runs. That was all the motivation Post One needed to get their own scoring barrage going as Jack Sczerba, and Brett Walmsley reached safely with hits. Braedon Scherer then belted his 3rd homerun of the season to put Post One on top where they would remain the rest of the game. Tyler Pirrung, Todd Gilardi, Mason Deluca, and Jamieson Summerill would all contribute with hits to help Post One offensively. Post One received some outstanding defensive plays from middle infielders Pirrung and Garrett Quinn that helped secure the 10-3 win over Middletown Post 25.
Post One starting pitcher Steven Mann a recent Saint Mark’s Spartan Graduate and incoming Wilmington University freshman went to the mound in a light rain for the start of the game and took his talented left arm well into the 6th inn for Post One. Mann racked up seven strikeouts only alowing 3 hits in his third outing of the season. He kept the Post 25 hitters off balance with a steady diet of fast balls and breaking balls that seemed to dance through the zone all night avoiding contact of the very talented power hitters from Middletown. He was relieved in the 6th inning by his fellow Saint Mark’s teammate Ryan Smith who kept those same hitters off balanced with his own timely off-speed pitches and changeups. The combined effort gave Steven Mann his third win of the season
Both teams will meet again this Saturday at St.Mark’s High School with the first pitch scheduled noon in their final regular season matchup.
Post One is on the road tonight to take on Dover’s Fox Post 2 at Dover High School 6pm.
