Duncan bats roar past Eisenhower, 13-0
After the first three innings, Eisenhower had to be feeling pretty good about its chances against Duncan. After all, pitcher Tyler Dunn had struck out seven batters and had given up just one run.
However, things took a turn in the fourth inning and continued to spiral downhill as the Demons erupted for a 13-0 win over the Eagles in six innings at Ike on Monday.
Behind huge offensive spurts in the fourth and sixth innings, the Demons were able to rack up 13 runs on13 hits. Tack on three Eisenhower errors and it was difficult for Ike coach Jay Vermillion to watch.
"I thought Tyler Dunn come out and pitched well early and looked really sharp, but defensively we just didn't come out and play very well for him," Vermillion said. "We look up and it's 8-0, and I don't think he gave up an earned run through five innings."
Eisenhower (4-18, 0-6) got a 5 1/3-inning outing from Dunn, who was replaced by Nathaniel Paquin in the sixth inning. Dunn was also one of just three Eagles to get a base hit on the afternoon.
"Their pitcher did a good job with us and we didn't swing the bats well, and those things are going to happen if you don't come ready to play," Vermillion said.
