The Archbishop Spalding Cavaliers took advantage of seven Calvert Hall miscues and got a determined pitching effort from starting pitcher Tyler Blohm en route to a 6-3 victory over the Cardinals. 

Spalding started the scoring in the bottom of the second when Ezio Rebechi hit a two-out single up the middle with the bases loaded off of Cardinal starter Nick Delp. Two runs scored and put the Cavaliers up 2-0. 

That lead was short lived as Dariel Torres hit a two-run homerun to left tying the game at two.  Both teams went scoreless until the bottom of the fifth when multiple Calvert Hall errors lead to four Spalding runs in the frame, making the score 6-2.  Calvert Hall added one run in the seventh for the 6-3 final. 

Blohm looked to be in some trouble in the fourth inning as a single and two walks led to the bases being loaded in a 2-2 ball game, but Spalding's junior lefty was able to get a key strike out to end the inning. Blohm finished the day with 6.1 innings pitched giving up eight hits three runs four strikeouts and three walks. 

Delp got the loss for Calvert Hall going 4.2 innings giving up five hits six runs (zero earned) and struck out two. 

Rebechi had two RBI in a 1-for-3 for Spaulding and Nick Vermillion and Billy Godrick each went 1-for-3 with two runs scored.  Barrett Smith added an RBI as well for the Cavaliers.

Jack Finn was 3-for-4 with a run scored for Calvert Hall and Tyler Little went 2-for-3.
