Boys baseball took home the 11-0 win through 5 innings of play against Central high school on what will most likely be the last game the seniors of Brien McMahon ever play on Pride Field.
Both teams started off the game slow with the neither team scoring a run until the fourth inning when McMahon’s Korey Morton (‘20) knocked a solo home run out of the park.
Senior Shane Popkins added to the lead sending one over the fence with a grand slam. “It was one of the greatest moments I’ve had in my baseball career in a while, and to end off my final home game like that is something I will never forget.”
It wasn’t only the Senator’s amazing offense that contributed to the win, but also their outstanding defence. Allowing no runs through the game and only 3 hits with 11 strikeouts, Max Pomponi (‘19) was the team’s defensive anchor.
“It felt really good in a must win game so I’m excited and it was a great performance from my teammates to back me up like they always do” said Pomponi.
The game was brought to an abrupt stop once the lead got too large to overcome. The mercy rule was enacted in the 5th inning bring and end to the game and closing out the seniors’ career with a bang.
