WASHINGTON, D.C. – Catholic scored a pair of runs in each the second and fourth innings to defeat McDaniel 4-1 in non-conference baseball action on Tuesday.

Jimmy Najera (Fort Washington, Md./DeMatha) led the offense for the Green Terror (1-2) with two of the team's three hits.

Dan Sullivan paced the Cardinals (3-2) with a 2-for-3 day and one RBI.

After a Mark Kalokitis drew a walk to lead off the home second, Brendan Breslin followed with a single. An error put runners at the corners for Dave Grear, who doubled to score both runners for a 2-0 advantage.

Patrick Christopher (Union Beach, N.J./St. John Vianney) opened the fourth inning with a double before advancing to third on a groundout.

Najera followed with a single to plate Christopher and cut the deficit in half.

Najera stole second before advancing to third on a wild pitch. Chris Longo (Monroe, N.Y./Monroe Woodbury) drew a two-out walk to force starter Tom Egan from the game. Rob Renzi got out of the frame with a pickoff play.

In the bottom of the inning, Kalokitis led off with a single before Grear was hit by a one-out pitch. One batter later, Sullivan followed with a double, putting runners at second and third.

A Trevor Falk sacrifice fly extended the lead to 4-1.

Andrew Monger (Ellicott City, Md./Mt. Hebron) pitched the final four innings in relief, allowing just two hits and fanning two.
