Three-run homer pushes Hilton Head Prep to win

in Sports by

Hilton Head Prep, thanks to a big swing from Reese Irwin, pulled away to defeat Delaware Christian 9-3 in a high school baseball game on Tuesday, March 22. The Dolphins secured a lead early and never faltered in the high school baseball matchup, eventually defeating Delaware Christian convincingly.

Irwin smacked a three-run home run in a seven-run second inning for the Hilton Head Prep baseball club. On the mound, Hilton Head Prep pitcher Cem Caglayan earned the win. As part of a strong outing, Caglayan worked five innings, registering nine strikeouts and allowing only two hits and one
earned run.

Caglayan also helped his pitching cause at the plate, finishing 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a double. Another Hilton Head Prep batter, E.J. Churchich, drilled a double and drew two walks for the Dolphins in the winning effort early last week.
