Lookingbill, Glenelg sink Mt. Hebron

April 08, 1993|By Rick Belz | Rick Belz,Staff Writer

Sophomore Sean Lookingbill turned in another sensational pitching performance and Glenelg's hitters came to life in a 9-5 victory over Mount Hebron yesterday.

Lookingbill (1-0), a left-hander with an outstanding curve, struck out eight, walked two and allowed one hit and no runs in four innings. It was his first varsity appearance as a starting pitcher. In his past two appearances combined he has pitched seven shutout innings, struck out 15, walked two and allowed one hit.

"My fastball wasn't as good as it was Tuesday [against Atholton], but my curve was just as good," Lookingbill said. He twice struck out Mount Hebron's top two hitters, Greg Hylock and Mike Fadrowski.

Glenelg's batters exploded for five runs in the first inning off Mount Hebron ace Eric Volland, who was making his first start of the season, delayed because of inclement weather.

"I'm sure he's a better pitcher than he showed, but that was Mount Hebron's first game and we've already played against pitchers who throw harder than he does," Glenelg coach Terry Coleman said.

Glenelg upped its record to 2-0. The Gladiators also played to a 3-3 tie with Centennial, which may have to be played off later.

Three Glenelg batters, Matt Morraye, Mike Goldberg and Mike Deming, each had three base hits. Goldberg and Deming each had three RBI.

Morraye, Glenelg's leadoff batter, started the first-inning rally by ripping a single to left field. Jamie Brinker walked. Brian Boteler hit a line drive down the third-base line to score Morraye.

The rally continued as Kevin Curtain singled to shortstop. Then Goldberg walloped a two-run double to left field. Deming followed with a two-run single to left. Glenelg led 5-0.

Steve Lawson relieved Volland and retired the side without further damage. Lawson pitched the rest of the game, allowing eight hits and four runs, striking out six and walking three.

Glenelg resumed its scoring in the third inning with a two-run rally ignited by Deming's leadoff triple to center field. Dave Buckholtz drove Deming home with a sacrifice fly.

Jason Beall continued the rally by walking. Morraye singled to right field and Beall scored when the throw to third base was wild. Glenelg led 7-0.

The only hit off Lookingbill was Mike Cole's ground single to right field that barely eluded the gloves of two Glenelg infielders in the second inning.

Glenelg catcher Kevin Curtin, who had two hits and a walk, singled to start a one-run fourth-inning rally.
