Chris Cappas leads Kellenberg to a 9-1 Win Over Chaminade

Apr 30 2017

Playing at Eisenhower Park on a beautiful spring day, Kellenberg won a crucial game against Chaminade 9-1. Thanks to a huge offensive fifth inning, a dominant start from lefty Chris Cappas and some exquisite defense the Firebirds took two of the three games in this series.

Cappas started strong, striking out the opposing side in order to start the first. He then helped his own cause with an RBI single to left that put his side on the board in the bottom of the first.

Lian Dvorak was on the mound for Chaminade, and after that first run he began to settle down. It was a classic pitchers duel until Kellenberg erupted for eight runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Jack Delany started the scoring that inning with a single to right that brought in Andrew Russell. That signaled the end for Dvorak, but not for Kellenberg’s offense. A bloop single and a walk loaded the bases for Justin Renner, who drove in Delany with a single to right. Another run scored on a double by Terrence Murray, and two more came around on singles from Russell and James Dieguez.
