Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – Delaware Military Academy broke open a tie game with four runs in the sixth inning and two more in the seventh and took a 10-4 decision at Archmere in Diamond State Athletic Conference softball on April 27 in Claymont.

Archmere pitcher Kayla Murray had retired six consecutive Seahawks heading into the sixth, but the DMA bats came alive. Ashley Conaty led off with a single just over the infield, and Clare Henry and Rachel Savini each bunted for a single to load the bases. Kayla Frazer singled sharply to left field to score two, and, after one batter was retired, Nicole Elliott tripled down the left-field line to plate Savini and Frazer. Just like that, it was 8-4.

Dialog reporter

 

GREENVILLE – Brett Brooks had two hits and four runs batted in as St. Elizabeth took an 8-1 victory in nonconference baseball on April 26. Brooks drove in a pair of runs in each of the sixth and seventh innings, when the Vikings did all their damage.

Tatnall got on the board with a single run in the first, and Hornets starting pitcher Oliver Campbell made that stand up for most of the fast-paced game. Campbell worked out of a bit of trouble in the fourth, when David Hazelton started the inning with a long double to the fence in left-center. Hazelton reached third with one out, but St. Elizabeth could not score. Read more »

WILMINGTON – Ryan Bradigan pitched a complete-game two-hitter to lead top-ranked Conrad past No. 7 St. Mark’s, 3-0, on April 23.

The Red Wolves’ offense had no easy task as it had to face Spartans starter Billy Sullivan. Red Wolves Kyle Walker led off with a double but was thrown out trying to stretch it to a triple. Spartans centerfielder Austin Colmery fired the ball to Brian Gilardi, who nailed the runner at third as Chris Ludman applied the tag. That play came in handy as Brock Nowell doubled two batters later, but Sullivan got out of the jam.

Moyer’s ninth-inning single helps Vikings win fourth straight on diamond

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – St. Elizabeth’s baseball team had at least two runners on base in six of the final seven innings of its nine-inning affair with Newark Charter on April 20, but after scoring twice in the third, the Vikings were hamstrung in every attempt to plate another. A combination of shaky baserunning, good defense and plain bad luck conspired against the home team.

But that ended in the ninth, when Nate Moyer’s check swing single to right-center scored Brett Brooks with the winning run in a 3-2 decision over the Patriots, who entered the contest at Canby Park with a six-game winning streak and ranked eighth and fifth in two of the three major statewide polls. Moyer’s hit brought jubilation – and a bit of relief – out of the Vikings, who had watched multiple other opportunities to score evaporate. Read more »
