Game 1 – Atlantics 3 – Shamrocks 2

Brandon Fischer’s (Briarcliffe) walk-off, two run double in the bottom of the seventh capped off a 2-for-4 performance in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader. The game was a pitcher’s duel between Christian Huertas (SUNY New Paltz) and Paul Mills (York), both of whom pitched the entire game. Huertas won the duel by striking out seven batters while giving up seven hits, two walks, and two earned runs. Jake Otis (Dickinson) was 2-for-3 with an RBI double, and his fourth inning single contributed to a Shamrock’s rally to score the second run of the game.

Winning Pitcher – Atlantics – Christian Huertas (1-0)
Losing Pitcher – Shamrocks – Paul Mills (0-1)

Game 2 – Atlantics 6 – Shamrocks 1
Robbie Hopes (Muhlenberg) was 3-for-4 with 3 RBI and a run scored, as the Atlantics used a four-run fifth inning to cruise past the Shamrocks. The game was tied at one entering the 5th, until the Atlantics batted around, and had their first six men reach base in the inning. Dominick Raucci (Dowling) was 2-for-4 with a two-run single in the 5th. The Shamrocks were only able to get five hits off of Atlantics’ starter, Thomas Burke (Concordia). Burke threw a complete game, but needed to work out of jams throughout the afternoon because of six walks.

Winning Pitcher – Atlantics – Thomas Burke (1-0)
Losing Pitcher – Shamrocks – Jacob Lanzkowsky (0-1)
