Warhawks roll to another rout

Seminole scores six runs in the third inning on its way to beating Dixie Hollins 10-0.

ST. PETERSBURG -- When playing against Seminole this season, certain things are bound to happen. There probably will be a dominant pitcher, and there probably will be a big inning.

That was the case Wednesday afternoon as the Warhawks rolled to a 10-0 win over Dixie Hollins.

Seminole (10-0) blew open the game with a six-run third inning and got solid pitching from starter T.J. Large and relievers Philip Stillwell and Mike Abrahamson.

It was Seminole's fourth consecutive win by 10 runs or more, although this one did not end because of the mercy rule.

"We've been hitting the ball well. We've been able to get two, three or four hits in an inning," Seminole coach Scott Miller said. "And our pitching has really been the key."

Seminole's pitching trio held the Rebels (3-5) to three singles. Large pitched four innings, struck out four and allowed two hits. Dixie Hollins didn't advance a runner to second base.

Meanwhile, the Warhawks had 12 hits, including five in the third.

Seminole led 1-0 after two innings on a John Killalea double that drove in Bobby Wilson. Killalea had a big blow in the third as well when he doubled again to drive in two more runs.

It has been a big 48 hours for Killalea. He threw a five-inning no-hitter Tuesday in a 10-0 win over Countryside. Wednesday, he was 2-for-4 with three RBI.

John Skowrupski had an RBI double in the third as well. Casey Kotchman and Brian Bass also drove in runs in the inning. Dixie Hollins starter Joe Castagner didn't make it out of the inning. He was replaced by A.J. Bozenhard after allowing four consecutive hits and failing to record an out.

Seminole added a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Donyell Williams and two more in the seventh on RBI by Bass and Killalea.

Seminole had eight of nine batters record at least one hit. Wilson went 3-for-4 with three runs scored.

"This is just one of those years for us," Miller said. "This team is loaded. We haven't had a game this season where we've been close in the late innings. That's nothing against these other teams, but that's just the way it's been so far."
