Baseball Storms to 12-2 Win Over Prep
In quick order, three guys turned in spectacular performances Saturday in the fifth inning of Penn Charter's baseball game with visiting St. Joseph's Prep.
Junior Mike Siani was first. He launched a grand slam to right. Senior Joey Lancellotti was second. He powered a solo homer to left. Senior Oliver Cataldi was third. He showed he could play, too. . . . Music, that is.
Cataldi, a deep substitute, passes time by blaring walk-up songs for each batter over the sound system. When Lancellotti hit his homer, Oliver was immediately ready for that special occasion. Before Joey even reached home plate.
With this quite-loud snippet from a hip-hop song: "Oh no, not again."
Yes, again. Consecutive homers.
The Quakers, coming off Wednesday's 1-0 loss to SCH Academy, stormed to a 12-2 win, in six innings.
Siani finished 3-for-4 with four RBI. Seniors Dom Toso and Brendan Pell had matching 3-for-4, two-RBI performances. Classmate Steve Lorenz went 2-for-2 with two ribbies and two more seniors, righty Matt Gorman (4.1 innings) and lefty Brendan "Chooch" Cellucci, divided the pitching.
