WP –   J. Stavrakos        

Wednesday, March 30th 

The last few years, Palm Harbor has taken their spring break week off, but this year they are playing in the highly competitive 46th Annual Dunedin Baseball Tournament 2015 Spring Classic.  The Hurricanes faced Dixie Hollins on Monday to start the tourney and their bats came out banging with a 12-2 five inning mercy rule victory.

Senior John Stavrakos was given the start and looked good pitching four strong innings scattering five hits to go along with four strikeouts and only one walk. Freshmen lefty Paul Beverly got the call from the bullpen to pitch the fifth inning and recorded two strikeouts.

Offensively, PHU came out early scoring four runs in the top of the first inning.  Junior Dan Hollander (1-2, RBI, two run scored, walk, HBP) singled followed by senior Shane Mullen (1-4, run scored) single.  Junior Adam Jurco, who had a perfect day at the plate (3 for 3, 4 RBI’s, walk, run scored) belted a double scoring Hollander.  Junior John Pichman (1-4, RBI, run scored) then knocked a double of his own scoring Mullen.  Senior Clayton Moran (3-3, 2 RBI, 2 run scored) stepped to the dish and ripped a two run single scoring Jurco and Pichman.

The Canes got back on the board in a big way again in the 5th putting on five more runs.  Clayton led off the inning with a single and advanced to second when junior Mark Coleman (1-2, HBP) was hit by a pitch.  Sophomore Carter Wilson (1-2, 2 RBI’s, 2 runs scored) digs in and takes an 0-1 pitch deep to left center for a two run triple scoring Moran and Coleman.  Junior AJ Hrica (2-3, RBI, run scored, walk) jabs a RBI single scoring Wilson.  Hollander is then walked.  Hrica and Hollander each advance on stolen bases respectively.  With runners in scoring position, clutch hitter Jurco comes through again with a two run double that barely stayed in the park.  

With the score 9-2 in the top of the 5th, PHU continues their offensive attack.  Moran once again leads off with a single then proceeds to steal 2nd and takes 3rd on a single by Coleman.  Senior Matthew Bartolotti comes in to run for Coleman.  Senior Jordan Downing (1-3, RBI) finds some green for a RBI single scoring Moran.  Wilson reaches on a fielders choice forcing Downing out at 2nd as Bartolotti advances to 3rd.  Hrica is then walked on four straight pitches. Hollander, using that invisible target on his back, gets plunked again this year scoring Bartolotti for the once again painful RBI.  With the bases still juiced, Jurco is walked for another RBI and a ten run lead. 

Beverly retires the first two batters on strikeouts.  Followed by a walk he was able to get the last batter to fly out to senior Andrew Bartolotti in left field to end the game.

The Hurricanes look to continue their winning ways on Tuesday, March 31st at 5:00 pm as they will take on Inspiration Academy who beat Countryside on Monday night 5-1.
