Delgado sweeps Lewis & Clark College in Thursday doubleheader
Delgado posted thirty-one combined runs in two mercy rule decisions to sweep Lewis & Clark Community College in Thursday’s doubleheader at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium.
In the first game, the Dolphins sent ten batters to the plate in the bottom of the first to post seven runs on five hits for the early lead. A similar frame occurred in the second when 12 Delgado batters combined for eight additional runs on five hits, including a two run single by Brennan Lambert and an RBI double by Stephen Klein.
Brennan Lambert went on to hit home runs in back-to-back at bats in the third and fourth innings, closing the game 4 for 4 with four runs and six RBIs.
Lewis & Clark’s sole run came on a single in the third inning enroute to the Dolphins’ 20-1 victory in a game cut to five innings.
Dwain Guice picked up his fourth win of the season on the mound, pitching four innings with Nick Canevari closing the game in relief.
Delgado jump started the scoring in the second inning of game two when Nick Lorio reached on a two-out error, scoring when Matt Barthelemy singled. Kyle Fontenot walked to before Mikey Stutes’ three run homerun gave the Dolphins a 4-0 lead. A two run double by Connor Feustle in the fourth padded the lead.
In the fifth, Jobee Boone singled and scored on a groundout and Lane LeBlanc reached on an error before scoring on a single by Kyle Fontenot.
The Trailblazers added a run in the sixth before Lane LeBlanc’s three run, walkoff homerun lifted Delgado to the 11-1 mercy rule win in the bottom of the sixth.
Cameron Peairs went the distance on the mound to earn the win, holding Lewis & Clark to three hits.
Delgado kicks off a lengthy road trip Friday, traveling to Pensacola State for a three game series this weekend.
