In the fourth inning: 28 Londonderry batters, 23 runs
That's right. Londonderry batted around not once, not twice, but three times in the fourth inning, when the Lancers sent 28 batters to the plate en route to a 33-7 victory.
The game was called after the top of the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.
"If you told me we were going to score seven on (Moloney), I think we'd have a chance," Nashua North coach Kyle Harvell said. "That's a difficult game for that kid to pitch in."
Londonderry scored two runs in the second, eight in the third and 23 in the fourth. In the fourth, Londonderry collected 12 hits, eight walks and one batter was hit by a pitch.
In total, the Lancers collected 20 hits against four North pitchers, who walked 15 batters.
"In that scenario you can't tell them to stop playing," Londonderry coach Brent Demas said. "You can tone down the aggressiveness, which is what I tried to do. I tried to do the best I could. Keep playing, but tone it down a little bit."
Londonderry raised its Division I record to 6-3.
North dropped to 6-4.
Although he sat through two lengthy delays while his team was at the plate, Moloney pitched all five innings.
He struck out seven and raised his record to 3-1 with one save.
Jake Welch, Brett Evangelista, Jake Cassidy and Rob Del Signore each scored four runs. Del Signore led Londonderry with three hits.
Catcher Matt Fortin had two doubles for Nashua North.
"This was definitely a new experience for me, and I don't expect it to be repeated," Demas said. "It's difficult on both sides in a game like that."
