Baseball, 4-5, has started its season with strong hitting and defense, said senior Colin McNeal, a first baseman and pitcher. 

This Saturday, the Gondoliers will have an even game against the 8-3 Marshall Barristers, according to McNeal. 

“It’s probably going to be a low scoring game given that we’re both pretty good defensive teams.”

Senior Jordan Flores, a recent transfer from Pacific, will be the starting pitcher for the Gondos. It will be his first game with the team. 

“We’re excited for how that goes,” said McNeal.

The Gondos also beat the Torres Toros 7-5 victory March 15. 

“It was a nail-biter,” coach Kevin Brockway. “We started out with a five run first, and it seemed like we were gonna have a quick day until they came back and scored three runs.”

Last Friday, the Gondos had a blowout shut-out against Fairfax, beating the Lions 14-0.

The game was their first league game as well, giving more motivation to the team, according to McNeal.

“Usually we have three or four guys that are normally hitting well, but in this game everyone was hitting really well,” he said. “All around, we played a perfect game. Everyone played well, and everyone contributed.”

A highlight from the game was senior Phillip Geiger’s double that scored three runs.
