PC Takes Roar Out of GFS Tigers

Penn Charter senior Joey Lancellotti has earned acclaim all baseball season for his amazing pitching exploits.

Guess what? Dude can hit, too.

Friday, PC made the extra-short trek down School House Lane for a non-league game vs. Germantown Friends and Lancellotti, a first baseman when not on the mound, accounted for half of the Quakers' runs in a 14-3, five-inning victory.

He crushed a three-run homer and a grand slam for seven RBI.

As noted by PC assistant Justin Hanley, GFS' field does not have an outfield fence. Justin described both homers as tape-measure shots that cleared the hill in left field.

Lancellotti is batting .493 with six doubles, two triples, nine homers and 34 RBI. On the mound he's 6-1 with an 0.61 ERA and almost two strikeouts per inning (85 in 45.2).

Junior Mike Siani and seniors Brendan Pell and Adam Holland added two RBI apiece. 

Senior righthander Jon Lewis did the pitching. Alas, he was reached for a first-inning run, thus ending PC's streak of consecutive scoreless innings at 38.
