The Saints guaranteed there’d be no seventh inning, collecting five of their 15 hits in the sixth for an eightrun outburst that made it 20-3.
Lefty reliever Noah Brack, who had pitched the bottom of the fifth, retired the side in the home half of the sixth to wrap things up.
“I know we’re capable of doing so much as a team,” Wolfe said. “If it means anything, in practice, we’re good. We hit, we pitch well, and we look great defensively. But it’s just not happening in games . ... I feel like we’ve only really had it all together in one game (a 30-0 defeat to Crisfield two weeks back). Other wise, we’ll have a couple of kids hitting, or one pitching and us not hitting, but never everything at once.”
“I like the way our kids hit the ball,” Femi said. “I think we’re at about where I expected we might be, at this point [in the season]. We’re still a little young, but we only lost one player from last year’s team . ... I think if we can keep it going we might be able to make a run.”
