In the third inning, the Spartans would send 9 batters to the plate with four of them crossing it with only 1 hit in the inning. Saint Marks added 2 more runs in the fifth inning then 4 more runs in the sixth inning closing out the game. 

The Spartans were led by Michael Clarke and Quinn who both had 2 hits and scored two runs. Francis Olszewski and John Smith had one hit a piece for the Vikings.

Saint Mark’s head to Lake forest Saturday with a 1pm start time. St Elizabeths will play host to Mount Pleasant Saturday at 11am.
