Hilton Head Prep baseball kept rolling on Monday, run-ruling Memorial Day 17-0 in five innings on the road.
The Dolphins scored a run in each of the first two frames before blowing it open in the third and sending eight across home plate.
Connor McDonnell and Torin Hrobar combined on a stellar shutout on the mound. McDonnell set the tone from the start, tossing the first three frames and setting down eight of his nine on strikes while allowing just one hit.
“Job well done by Connor on the hill today,“ HHP coach Chris Wells said. “He was in the strike zone early and often.”
Hrobar finished the job in the final two innings, giving up just one hit and striking out three.
Phoenix Betancourt continued his monster start to the season at the dish, going 3-for-4 with a quartet of RBIs. Tommy Stauffer recorded a 3-for-3 day, and both Steele Burd and Tristan Bonomo picked up two hits and drove in a pair of runs.
“Phoenix was once again a force in the middle of our lineup,” Wells said. “I just love his approach right now.”
HHP (7-0, 4-0) visits the Coastal Hurricanes on Tuesday.
