Tower Hill got their season underway in a big way. After a weather break in which both teams had to take shelter for a tornado warning the Hillers came alive. 

Tower Hill took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning on an error and drew a few walks before the weather delay. Coming back from the weather delay the Hillers bats provided all the thunder. They scored two runs in the third, 3 runs in the fourth, and 3 more runs in the fifth as they walked off with a 10-0 win over arch rival Tatnall. 

Tower Hill collected six hits in the last 3 innings of the game with 4 of them being doubles from John Gray, Gavin Heck, Kenyon Motley, and Christopher Simon. They collected 8 RBI’s from six different players in a great team offensive effort. 

The Hillers were led by Motley as he went 2-4 with an RBI and 3 runs scored. For Tatnall Andrew Scott, Tre Marcoz, and Brody Clayton each had 1 hit. 

Shadowed by the offensive performance Ryan Beyer pitched extremely well for Tower Hill. He scattered three hits over five innings adding seven strikeouts while only walking two batters.
