Three pitchers combined on a shutout to lead Battery Creek baseball to a 4-0 home win over John Paul II on Wednesday.
Riley Doray, CJ Robinson, and Luke Sanders combined on a four-hitter, and the Dolphins took advantage of seven errors to snap their five-game losing streak.
Doray started for the Dolphins, allowing only one hit while striking out two over three innings. Robinson came out of the bullpen and shut out the Golden Warriors for three innings while picking up three strikeouts, and Sanders closed the door with a scoreless seventh while striking out one.
Creek opened the scoring with solo runs in the second and third. Hunter Smith and Kyle Kirkland pushed across runs with a hit by pitch and a base on balls to score two in the fourth.
