GUYS MILLS — Every player in the lineup had at least one hit.

Owen Trumbull pitched another gem.

And Eisenhower came away with another baseball victory, this time a 13-2 decision over Maplewood on Wednesday afternoon.

“The guys just like playing with each other and playing a different type of baseball,” Knights coach Clint Corse said. “If you look at our stats, there are a lot of singles and a lot of RBIs. They shifted from wanting to hit home runs to let’s put runs on the board.”

Eisenhower (5-1) did that especially well in the fourth inning, scoring nine times to put the game out of reach. Highlighting the rally was a two-run home run by Jared Beers, one of five players to collect two hits.

Also recording two hits for the game were Dillon Benson, Alex Kemery, Trumbull and Kael Hunt.

“They’re an older group of guys and they’ve been playing together for four years,” Corse said. “You get that when you play together and win some baseball games. It’s neat to see.”

Trumbull was masterful on the mound, allowing only a pair of unearned runs, striking out nine and walking one.

The Knights return to action on Monday when they travel to Cochranton.
