UNO holds Dillard to two hits in shutout victory
NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Privateers engineered their eighth run-rule win as they held the Dillard Bleu Devils to two hits in a 10-0 victory after seven innings on Tuesday night at Maestri Field.
Ryan Delorbe got the start and threw 10 pitches, seven for strikes. The Privateers threw seven pitchers, one in each inning. Cameron White took the loss after allowing three runs and not retiring a batter in the first.
New Orleans wasted no time jumping on top. After a leadoff walk, Tyler Bischke drilled a double that scored Kasten Furr. Later in the inning, Anthony Herron Jr. singled to short bringing in the second run. Mitchell Sanford was then hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. In total, the Privateers scored four runs in the opening inning.
The scoring was all front loaded on the night as the Privateers plated 10 runs over the first four innings. Dylan Mach and Jorge Tejeda both drilled run scoring doubles in the third inning. For Mach, it was his third multi-hit contest out of the last four Privateer games.
New Orleans (20-13) was a double machine on the night. The Privateers had seven doubles, the most in a game this season.
On the mound, Delorbe, Andrew Duran, Keegan Rich, Connor Macip, Connor Handy, Davis Benton and Zeph Hoffpauir combined to record 12 strikeouts to just three walks over seven innings. It was the eighth time the Privateers had double-digit strikeouts as a staff in a game this year.
