Tommy Mora pitched a four-hitter and went 2-for-4 with three RBIs to lead Washington to a 14-4 win over Galileo in an Academic Athletic Association baseball game at Hennessey Field.
With the score tied 1-1, the Eagles exploded for 10 runs in the third inning with Mora, O’Koyea Dickson (2-for-3, two RBIs) and Chris McMahon each knocking in two runs apiece with timely hits.
Leading 11-3 heading into the top of fifth, the Eagles added three more runs to go up 14-3, putting them in position to win in a run-ruled shortened game. Mora again added an RBI single in the rally and Kevin Shue came through with a two-out, two-run single that made the score 14-3.
Galileo scored one run in the top of the fifth on D’Eante Bernstine’s RBI single, but Mora retired Cody Klein and Mack Wright with two on to preserve the Eagles’ win.
"We swung the bat real well and came up with timely two-out hits," Washington coach Rob Fung said. "Right now, we feel like we’re playing our best baseball of the year at exactly the right time."
