Baseball drops opener with Hamilton, game two rained out

Auburndale, FL- The Hamilton Baseball team took advantage of the Trailblazers pitching staff as they cruised to a 13-1 win in game one of a scheduled doubleheader at the RussMatt Invitational.  Game two was rained out just before first pitch.

Hamilton took advantage of some sloppy Trailblazer pitching as they surrendered 12 walks in the loss.  Hamilton touched up starter Dillon Maxon for three runs in the top of the first to take an early 3-0 lead.  MCLA would score their lone run in the bottom half on a Hamilton miscue.

The Continentals continued to put pressure on the MCLA defense and they tacked on two more runs in the third and then blew the game open with a six run fifth inning.

MCLA used six pitchers in the contest as Maxon (0-1) took the loss.  Diego Rivera and Christian Seariac each had two hits for MCLA.

Hamilton outhit the Trailblazers 11-6 in the contest.  Ethan Wallis, Jarrett Lee, and Brady Slinger each had two hits for Hamilton.  Brian Lawson went six innings to pick up the win.

MCLA is off until Tuesday when they challenge Cazenovia.
