How It Happened

  • St. Mary's put up the first run as the Seahawks scored on in the bottom of the second.

Hebron) single through the opposite side to advance Bryner to third. Bryner then came home on a two-out single through the right side by first-year outfielder Sam James (Charlottesville, Va./Western Albemarle).
  • York then unleashed 11 unanswered runs between the fifth and seven innings.
  • The Seahawks got one back in the seventh as redshirt sophomore infielder Jay Hammett (Coltons Point, Md./Chopticon) cracked a leadoff double then went to third on Bryner's one-out single before crossing home plate on an Ansaldi sacrifice fly.
  • Following a scoreless eighth for the Spartans, St. Mary's picked up two more in the bottom of the eighth behind senior infielder Bennett Garner's (Bowie, Md./Bowie) two-out RBI single and a bases loaded wild pitch.
  • York tacked on three more in the ninth for the 14-4 final and the Spartans' first conference win of the season.

Inside the Box Score
