(May 4, 2018) The Stephen Decatur baseball team drove in 10 runs and held the Mardela Warriors to one on Tuesday in Berlin.

“[We] played well early, but got complacent,” Decatur Coach Rich Ferro said. “[We] pitched and played defense well. We need to be more aggressive at the plate.”

Senior Tristan McDonough led the charge in the first inning with a three-run homer. Decatur scored five in the first inning and then pulled ahead 6-0 in the third.

Mardela tallied its run in the fourth inning.

The Seahawks added four runs in the sixth inning.

Senior Zach Pilarski had two hits and two RBIs. Junior Brett Berquist also had two hit and one RBI.

Junior Jack Rosenberg started on the mound for Decatur. He struck out three, walked three and allowed one hit in two innings. Sophomore Noah Ager came in and threw 1.1 innings and walked two. Junior Ridge Watson pitched the final 3.2 innings. He struck out three, walked one and allowed one hit.

Decatur’s final game of the regular season is today, Friday, against the Chincoteague Ponies at 4 p.m. in Berlin.
