Gators road show continues

The Gateway Regional High School baseball team might not have a place to call “home” early this season, but it sure has put on a show on the road.
Gateway won yet another road contest, improving to 5-0 overall (all on the road) with a 25-8 rout of host Smith Voke Monday.
The Gators (3-0 league) blasted out of the gates with a six-run, first inning. They took a 13-0 lead in the second inning, and tacked on 12 more runs over the next four innings before invoking a mercy-rule.
Ethan Gamble had his first big breakout game of the season for Gateway. Gamble went 5-for-5 with four runs scored and four RBIs.
He was not alone.
Gators’ Johnny Haskell and Justin Edinger each went 3-for-4. Haskell had three runs and three RBIs. Edinger had two run and two RBIs.
Calvin Dowers (3-for-6, 5 runs, 2 RBIs), Brett Turban (2-for-2, double, 2 runs), and James Degray (2-for-6, 3 RBIs, run) also finished with multiple hits for Gateway.
Gators’ Willis Pollard (2 runs, 2 RBIs), Curtis Dowers (2 runs, RBI), and Tommy Ruffo (2 RBIs), Geoff Sobotka (RBI) each collected a hit.
Degray allowed eight runs (four of which were unearned), eight hits, and no walks through six innings on the mound. He struck out four batters.
Southwick-Tolland 6, Hampshire 0

Southwick’s bats came alive late, and Southwick escaped Hampshire with a tough road victory.
A double from Brandon Seymore and singles by Pat Mahoney (2) and Chris Molta helped spark the Southwick victory, as well as solid base running.
Ryan Leclair delivered a complete game shutout on the mound for the Rams. He yielded just two hits and struck out 10 for his first pitching win of the season.
Southwick improved to 1-2-1.
