(Gettysburg, Pa.) - Today the Red Devil baseball team faced a Centennial Conference opponent on the road as they took on the Bullets of Gettysburg. Though this season has been plagued with late inning losses the Devils were able to dominate this game from start to finish.

After three innings the Red Devils led 3-0, but would take control later, scoring six runs in the fourth and fifth innings. 

Junior Alex Jacobson (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) led the day with three hits and two RBIs while Ben Carter (Wyomissing, Pa./Wyomissing Area) scored three runs and drove in another with two hits and two walks. 

Brian Reilly (Morristown, N.J./Marlboro) and Robbie Thompson (Camp Hill, Pa./Camp Hill) each had two hits and two RBI, and Daniel Zamarin (Blue Bell, Pa./Germantown Academy) added two hits as well.

Ethan Collins (Elmer, N.J./Arthur P. Schalick) went six innings for the win, recording seven strikeouts on the night. 

The Red Devils advance to 7-20 and 4-8 in the Centennial Conference. They will face Haverford tomorrow with the opening pitch set for 12:30 pm.
