Quantrill Get First Cpl Win
Morehead City welcomed the first-place Edenton Steamers to Big Rock Stadium on Thursday for a double-header, during which each team won one of the seven-inning games thanks to tremendous offensive outputs from their respective teams.
Morehead City erupted for nine runs in the first game, unofficially winning their second straight ballgame with a 9-2 rout of the Steamers, while Edenton exploded fo
r 18 runs in game two, a contest which they ended up winning by a 18-1 final.
Stanford right-hander Cal Quantrill got his first nod of the season for the Marlins in the first game, and was as close to perfect as a pitcher can be.
Quantrill tossed four innings, did not allow a base runner and struck out four batters. He was credited with the win, his first of the season.
"He gave us a quality start, and then our bats were able to come in and do some things offensively," said head coach Sam Carel. "It was a great team win."
The Marlins gave Quantrill plenty to work with in that first game. They scored four times in the second inning, getting an RBI single from Jacob Bruce, and a two-run double from Luke Tewes.
