Big Wins for Baseball, Softball

Hitting into a triple play is rather rare. So is this: homeruns by brothers in the same inning.

Good, ol' Penn Charter accomplished BOTH feats Tuesday in an Inter-Ac varsity baseball game at Haverford School and we can't imagine that too many teams, whatever the level, have been able to make that claim.

The Quakers won, 8-1, as lefties Brendan Cellucci (junior, 5 2/3 innings) and Mike Siani (soph, struck out all four batters he faced) divided the pitching.

The triple play occurred in the fifth inning and was the result of infield fly by Mike Siani that wasn't caught. All kinds of nutty things happened thereafter and the final decision, after much discussion between the coaches and umpires, was that two baserunners had committed violations.

In the seventh, frosh Sammy Siani sent a three-run homer out onto Lancaster Avenue. Junior James Gabor drew a walk, then Mike Siani launched a two-run shot that came close to matching Sammy's. It was just a shade to the left.

Senior Kenny Bergmann had lofted a solo homer in the fourth. Sammy (left) and Mike Siani are shown above.

In softball, PC topped visiting Episcopal, 22-1, while collecting 16 hits.

Junior Faith Fenton yielded one hit in four innings. Senior Eileen Hennessy and soph Grace Stansfield halved four of the team's eight doubles while seniors Dev Loftus (four RBI) and Zoe Neefe (three) cracked triples. Also, Stansfield, the catcher, picked off three runners.

In home games, the lacrossse squads were defeated. The boys fell to Haverford School, 12-5, and the girls were topped by Episcopal, 15-6. Senior Cody Sweeney scored twice for the former.

Boys tennis dropped a 6-1 decision at Haverford School. The Quakers' win was posted by senior Greg Zlobinsky (7-6, 6-4) at No. 1 singles.

Coach Phil Stevens noted, "While the score may seem a bit one-sided, the matches were all tightly contested and well-fought."
