Notre Dame baseball rolls past Edison
SOUTHPORT, N.Y. - Facing one of the perennial contenders in the IAC the Notre Dame offense took over early in a 14-3 win over Edison on Wednesday.
"There's a combination of our patience within the strike zone and their strike throwing, or lack thereof, tonight," Notre Dame coach Bill Hopkins said. "We were patient in the strike zone and we were able to come up with a lot of big hits with base runners on base.
"Brian Hale had a nice hit tonight with three hits and two doubles and Sam Bruner had a triple with the bases loaded to knock in three runs. I feel very fortunate to be able to take advantage for those opportunities. I'm very pleased with the way we hit the ball, we stung it very well to all fields."
Notre Dame scored seven in the second and six in the fourth and chased Edison ace Brandon Michaud from the game in the second inning.
Bruner had two hits, with the triple, three RBI and he scored two runs and Hale had a 3-for-3 day with the two doubles, four RBI and two runs scored.
Joe Prunier had an RBI and scored a run and Hunter Thomas had a hit, two RBI and a run scored and Cameron Reid also had a hit, two RBI and a run scored.
Ridgebury's Parker May had a hit and scored two runs and Derek Marshall scored two runs.
Kyle Minchin scored a run and Troy's Matt LaBadie had a hit, an RBI and a run scored.
