Baseball shuts out Maclay
3/17/2013 10:26:00 AM

In a sun-soaked afternoon at John Barbati Field, junior Adam Polansky pitched four scoreless innings and senior Ronnie Mitchell blasted a two-run home run to lead Baseball to an 8-0 victory over Tallahassee Maclay. DP (10-2), winners of seven straight, jumped on the Marauders for three runs in the first inning. Nic Strasser led off with a single to left and went to third on a perfectly executed hit and run base hit to right by Mike Flaherty. Flaherty stole second,  drawing the throw, allowing Strasser to score easily from third for the game's first run. Catcher Dan Autiello's sacrifice fly brought home Flaherty to make it 2-0 and Jakob Probst, who reached base after getting hit by a pitch, scored on Ronnie Mitchell's shot off the second baseman's glove. Up 3-0, the Panthers went back to work in the third. Ronnie Mitchell drew a two-out walk and went to second on Robbie Barrett's base hit through the hole to left field. Zach Holbrook walked to load the bases and Matt Sullivan did the same to bring home Mitchell for a 4-0 lead. In the fourth, Ryan Larson laced a one-out single to right field and scored on an error by the Maclay shortstop, whose potential double play throw to first sailed into the dugout. With two outs and Probst on first, Ronnie Mitchell jacked a two-run home run deep over the left field fence to make it 7-0. DP would tack on another run in the fifth when Matt Sullivan punched a single to left field and scored on a sacrifice fly by Ryan Larson. Polansky was nearly perfect on the hill through four innings and was relieved in the fifth by Griff Anderson, who gave way to Kyle Marman in the sixth. DP has now outscored their last five opponents 54-7, the program's highest offensive output in a five-game stretch since 1995. They'll head to Apopka Tuesday night for a critical Metro West matchup.
