Hilton Head Prep baseball broke open a close game with a five-run sixth inning and picked up a big road win over a SCISA 3A opponent Saturday, winning 10-1 at Northwood Academy.
Jaiden Hrobar struck out seven over five scoreless innings, limiting the Chargers to two hits and two walks, and Steele Burd struck out four over the final two innings to close it out.
“Jaiden looked great on the mound tonight,” HHP coach Chris Wells said. “I’m so proud of how much he’s progressed on the hill and look forward to more performances like that.”
Northwood’s Landin O’Brien and David Hummer held down the Dolphins’ potent offense for much of the afternoon, but HHP broke out with five runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh.
Luke Foley was 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs, and Phoenix Betancourt was 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI and scored twice. Burd and Connor McDonnell each drove in two runs.
The Dolphins (6-0) travels to Memorial Day in Savannah at 5 p.m. Monday.
