Boys' Latin starts quickly, tops Curley on soggy field

The Baltimore Sun

Yesterday's wet and windy conditions wreaked havoc throughout the area, but the Boys' Latin and Archbishop Curley baseball teams still took the field - albeit a soggy one.

Mike Trimmer hit a two-run RBI double in the bottom of the first inning to help the host Lakers (8-0) take an early six-run lead on their way to beating the Friars, 12-9.

"The field was muddy and the wind was awful," Boys' Latin coach Mike Bordick said. "Luck might have been on our side offensively. A couple of balls got caught by the wind and looped in for hits."

Curley (7-8) chipped away as Josh Motter was driven in by Brad Waltman's single to cut the lead to 10-9 in the top of the sixth. But, the Lakers scored twice in their half of the inning to extend their lead.

Joe Hineline, who hit two home runs for the Friars, led off the seventh with a double but was left stranded as the next Curley hitters struck out and twice grounded out to the pitcher to end the game.

"With your starting pitcher giving up seven runs in the first, it was hard to overcome," said Friars coach Jack Thomas, who was surprised the game was played.
