Rebels roll up 40 runs

GOOSE LAKE – Getting on base – even scoring – wasn’t a problem for Prince of Peace, evidenced by a five-run, two-hit third inning in the opener against Northeast. Where the Irish struggled, Thursday, was in getting outs and cooling the Rebel bats.

Trailing 8-5 entering the bottom of the third in Game 1, Northeast scored 15 runs – 13 before the Irish managed their first out. The Rebels batted through the lineup twice, and pitcher Tevin Stoecker followed with a scoreless fourth inning to end the game early on the 15-run rule, the score 23-5.

Game 2 didn’t fare much better for Prince of Peace, with a Northeast six-run third inning putting the game out of reach at 13-0. The Rebels tacked on four more in the fourth, to make the score 17-0, ending it early despite two Irish runs in the bottom half, 17-2. Northeast posted 40 runs and moved to 15-3, 10-0 in the Big East Conference.

“We were struggling tonight pitching,” Prince of Peace coach Bob Mullholland said. “It’s 8-5 and all of a sudden we couldn’t put it over the plate. And you have to give Northeast credit, they were hitting the ball. They come out and expects to win. You’ve got to have that mentality.”

The Rebels saw sturdy plate performances from younger players not regularly in the lineup. Coach Tyler Howe said Thursday’s games showcased Northeast’s depth and gave people a glimpse into the future of the program.

“It was a good opportunity to get some guys who haven’t had many at-bats at the varsity level some at bats,” Howe said. “Trey Sullivan had some great hits, Jack Murphy -- some nice at-bats -- and Trevor Schaver had some great at-bats.”

While both games ended in blowouts, each one started with either team in the hunt. The Irish blanked Northeast in the first inning. When the Rebels pulled ahead with eight runs in the second, Prince of Peace followed with their biggest inning of the day, fueled by a three-run Nic Roth homer.
