BALTIMORE, M.D. – – Coming off a doubleheader sweep on Saturday, the D.C Grays continued rolling along, picking up their third straight win Sunday over the Baltimore Dodgers, 10-0. This marks the second consecutive shutout for the Grays and brings their record to 15-16, good enough for second place in the Cal Ripken Collegiate League South Division.
For the third straight game in a row, the pitching for the Grays was nothing short of brilliant. Ace J.P. Woodward (Lafayette) started the game and shut down the Dodgers offense, allowing just two hits in 6.2 innings. Michael Delio (SUNY New PALTZ) came on in relief and matched Woodward’s dominance, also allowing just two hits in the remaining 2.1 innings. The two picthers on the day combined for 10 strikeouts.
Once again, the offense was able to back up the strong pitching with ease, especially by padding the lead late in the game. The team plated three runs through the first four innings, before exploding for seven runs in the final two innings of the ball game. The bats were led individually by CF Tre Terry (Thomas Nelson CC), who went 2-3 and knocked in 3 RBI. 2B Brian Dempsey (Boston College) picked up right where he left off on Saturday, going 2-4 and raising his batting average to .303.
The Grays are in action again on Monday when they take on the division-leading Bethesda Big Train. First pitch will be at 7:00 PM.
