WILMINGTON – The fifth-seeded Salesianum baseball team got an impressive start from junior Eugene Holler and defeated the 12th-seeded Milford Buccaneers, 3-0, on May 27. Holler pitched six innings of shutout baseball, allowing just one hit, before Jack Fiala pitched the seventh for the save.

The Sals’ offense scored two runs in the first with a two-out rally. Senior catcher Zach Miller drew a two-out walk and was replaced at first base by courtesy runner Joseph Poma. He stole second and then scampered to third on a throwing error. He scored on an infield single by Joseph Setting, and Setting came around on a hit-and-run double by Zach Gwynn.

Sallies got strong defensive plays from Alex Hinton and Gwynn to keep the 2-0 lead. Bucs freshman pitcher Chad Reichhold did a great job keeping the Sals’ hitters off balance after that first inning. The Sals added an unearned run in the fifth.

Salesianum had six hits, including five doubles by Gwynn, Miller, Hinton, Josh McGwire and Anthony Frechette. The Sals (13-6) will host Hodgson on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
