Marlins 1st inning sets tone vs Red Sox (May 19)

The Main Street Citgo Marlins jumped out to a first inning lead and never looked back against the Middlesex Surgical Association Red Sox Sunday morning. After the Red Sox starting pitcher Declan Mahoney got the first two batters out Milo Schut was able to reach second base on a base hit and throwing error. That brought Chris Power to the plate who was able to drive Schut in on a base hit up the middle. Power was able to steal second, third, and eventually home to give the Marlins a 2-0 lead going into the second inning.

After allowing a hit to Thomas Mackay to start the second, Badger settled down and retired the next three batters. Mahoney retired three in a row with strikeouts in the bottom of the second. The Marlins then added two more runs in the bottom of the third with Badger hitting a solo home run over the left field fence. Schut then hit a double and Power drove Schut in with a double of his own. With the score now 4-0 the Red Sox got some offense going. Jack Siciliano, Dario Volo, Mahoney and MacKay all reached base on hits. Volo and Mahoney scored making the score 4-2 going into the bottom of the fourth. The Marlins added another run in the bottom half with Mark Kuchma scoring after reaching base on a single and advancing on a bunt by Tobias Wilcken. The fifth and sixth innings were scoreless with the game ending on a pop fly to Power at first base, Marlins pitcher earned the complete game win with the final score Marling 5 and Red Sox 2.
