McDaniel opens home slate with 10-0 win over Penn State-York

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Brandon Kline (Myersville, Md./Middletown) recorded two hits, two RBIs, a walk and run scored to lead McDaniel to a 10-0 victory over Penn State-York in non-conference baseball action on Tuesday.

The Green Terror (6-5) rapped out just eight hits but took advantage of six walk and four errors by the Lions (0-1) to open its home schedule with a victory.

Trevor Neff went 1-for-2 with a walk to lead Penn State-York.

After a scoreless first four innings, Jimmy Najera (Fort Washington, Md./DeMatha) drew a walk to lead off the home fifth.

On a strikeout one batter later, Najera successfully stole second before advancing to third on a failed pickoff attempt that sailed into center field.

A Chris Longo (Monroe, N.Y./Monroe-Woodbury) double to the gap plated Najera with the game's first run.

Longo advanced to third on a wild pitch before scoring on a Ryan Byrnes (New City, N.Y./Clarkstown North) sacrifice fly.

Kline drew a walk to lead off the sixth and stole second before a Marshall Betts (Berlin, Md./Stephen Decatur) single put runners at the corners.

A Patrick Christopher (Union Bridge, N.J./St. John Vianney) ground ball scored Kline but the first of three errors in the frame put runners at first and second with no outs.

A walk to James Chiorello (East Windsor, N.J./Lawrenceville Prep) loaded the bases and chased reliever Anthany Heindel in favor of Kent Weibley, who issued back-to-back walks to force home two runs.

Leading 5-0, a second error kept the bases loaded but stretched the lead to six with nobody out.

After a strikeout, Matthew Bodnar (Douglasville, Pa./Central Catholic) singled home Najera before a Kline knock to center plated Matthew Pace (Baltimore, Md./North County) and Longo for a 9-0 advantage.

A two-out throwing error allowed Bodnar to score, capping the six-run inning.

Betts added two hits for the Green Terror while Longo chipped in a pair of runs and two RBIs.

Zach Jones (Frederick, Md./Tusacara) picked up the winning, striking out three and allowing one hit in two innings of relief work.

Jordan Holter (Carlisle, Pa./Carlisle), in his first collegiate action, allowed one hit and struck out two in the ninth inning.

McDaniel returns to action at Penn State-Mont Alto on Friday. Game time is 3:30 p.m.
