Auburndale, FL- Liam Nolan tossed a complete game and Jeff Bink went 3-3 with 3 RBI's as the MCLA Baseball team won their third straight game defeating the Colby Sawyer Chargers 6-1 this morning in Auburndale, FL. MCLA is now 4-2 on the season while the Chargers drop to 2-5 overall.
MCLA got on the board in the first inning as Bink collected the first of his RBI's scoring Christian Seariac with a single to center for an early 1-0 lead. They would add two more runs in the third frame with Bink once again providing the key blow.
