Richard Marique struck out 10 and allowed no hits or walks and helped his cause at the plate by driving in a team-high three RBIs as Pinkerton Academy of Derry topped Merrimack, 13-0, in a game halted after five innings due to the mercy rule.

A hit batsman and one Astros error were the only blemishes on Marique’s attempt at a perfect five innings.

The Astros scored 10 runs in the bottom of the second, and added three more runs in the third.

Frank Gulezian, Jacob McGill and K. Levesque each had a pair of hits and 2 RBIs for Pinkerton.
