BASEBALL: Raiders beat Trinity, fall to Palmyra, McDevitt

dintimanpic4 20 16Brendan Dintiman struck out five Trinity batters in three innings to record the victory.

Last week started off great for the Middletown varsity baseball team, as the Blue Raiders claimed their second win of the season in an 11-1 victory over visiting Trinity on Monday, April 11. But that early momentum did not carry over through the rest of the five-day stretch.

The Raiders came out on the short end of 10-0 decision at Palmyra on Wednesday, April 13, and dropped a 9-1 final to visiting Bishop McDevitt on Friday, April 15.

Brendan Dintiman picked up the pitching victory after going three innings on the mound for the winners. Dintiman had five strikeouts and gave up one hit and one unearned run before giving way to relief pitcher Noah Zimmerman, who started the fourth and fifth frames. Zimmerman struck out three and walked two in his two innings of relief.
