JCD Eagles slay Madison Shawe Hilltoppers 20-1, after falling to Rising Sun Shiners 2-4

Gary Franklin

On May 3 Coach David Bradshaw and his Jac-Cen-Del Eagles Varsity Baseball Team took advantage of a rare opportunity of late to do something outside, other than dodge rain drops and mud puddles, and came calling on the Madison Shawe Hilltoppers. Five short innings later it was back on the bus heading for JCD, as they had bested their opponents by a count of 20-1. Long story short, JCD scored 4 in the first, 7 in the second, 2 in the fourth and 7 in the fifth. Shawe rallied to score one in their at bat in the bottom of the second inning. Eagle hurler Michael Flint was credited with the victory from the mound, after five innings of play, during which he had faced 20 Topper batters, thrown 75 pitches and posted 3 hits, was charged with a run, walked two and fanned eight.

Coaches, teammates and the Eagle faithfuls are extremely pleased to see the return of senior Reuben Benham (9) back into their lineup after battling an extended illness.
