WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth to break a scoreless deadlock and tacked on additional runs in each of the next two innings to defeat Gettysburg 5-2 in Centennial Conference (CC) baseball action on Friday.

Pat Christopher (Union Beach, N.J./St. John Vianney) led the Green Terror (19-15, 8-8 CC) with a 3-for-4 day, adding two RBIs and a run scored while Tyler Jackow (Colonia, N.J./Colonia) and Marty Windisch (Manchester, Md./Manchester Valley) added three hits each. David Pisauro (Macungie, Pa./Emmaus) did his job, striking out a career-best 11 in 7 2/3 innings of work. James Chiorello (East Windsor, N.J./Lawrenceville Prep) shut the door, retiring the final four batters he faced for his first save of the season.

Nate Simon and Ben Roessle had a hit and RBI each to pace the Bullets (25-11, 11-5 CC), who had their 10-game winning streak snapped and fell into a second-place tie with Haverford.

After just six combined base runners through the top of the sixth inning, Jackow led off the home sixth with a roped single into center field.

Windisch followed with a bunt up the first-base line that he beat out for a hit.

After an error allowed Cameron Bahr (Southampton, N.J./Seneca) to reach and load the bases, Christopher poked a one-out single into center to score Jackow and Windisch for a 2-0 lead.

Tommy LeNoir led off the seventh with an infield single before a Simon hit into right put runners at first and second with one out.

Roessle followed with a bad-hop single up the middle that scored LeNoir to cut the deficit to 2-1.

Jonathan McKinney (Jonestown, Pa./Northern Lebanon) led off the bottom of the frame with a single through the left side before Gettysburg was able to get the runner at second on a Sean Sivo (Ellicott City, Md./Howard) sacrifice attempt.

A dropped fly ball on the infield allowed Jackow to reach before Windisch rolled a ball through the right side for a 3-1 advantage.

Bahr followed with a sacrifice fly to score Jackow for a 4-1 lead.

Pisauro got the first two hitters of the eighth to groundout out before Al Posch laced a double.

A fielding error and walk loaded the bases and Chiorello came on in relief of Pisauro for the four-out save.

After walking the first batter he faced, Roessle just missed a grand slam down the right-field line before Chiorello induced a groundout to get out of the jam.

A fielding error allowed Christopher to reach to lead off the eighth before stealing second and third on consecutive one-out pitches.

An Andrew Hofmeister (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) double scored Christopher for a 5-2 advantage but Gettysburg was able to cut down to runs at the plate on hits to keep it a three-run game.

Chiorello retired the side in order in the ninth for the team's first win over Gettysburg since 2009.

Pisauro, who fanned eight batters through the first four innings and allowed just one baserunner through five, recorded the second-highest strikeout total of any Green Terror hurler this season with his 11.

McDaniel, which was eliminated from the conference playoff picture with Haverford's 3-1 win over Franklin & Marshall, concludes the regular season at Ursinus on Saturday. The first game of the doubleheader begins at 12:30 p.m.
