Palumbo collects two hits and four RBI
Archbishop Spalding fields many new faces in its 2018 baseball lineup, but the Cavaliers still expect to be a power broker in the MIAA A Conference this spring, as evidenced by their 10-0 opening day win over Good Counsel, Monday in Olney.
The game went just five innings and two Spalding pitchers combined to allow just one hit to the Falcons. Zack Powers made the start and got the win, pitching 3.1 innings of 1-hit ball, as he struck out six and walked just one. Daniel Elliott recorded the final five outs, all by strike out and walked one. Thus, Spalding pitching struck out 11 of the 18 batters it faced.
Matt Palumbo led the offense with two hits, including a triple, two runs scored and four RBI. Justin Caesar also had two hits, with a run scored and an RBI. Peter Godrick added a double, two walks and four runs scored, while four other Cavaliers had base hits.
Spalding scored two runs in the first, second and fourth, before adding four in the top of the fifth.
The Cavaliers play at Bishop McNamara on Tuesday.
