(CNBNews Sports) BROOKLAWN N.J. (April 29, 2016)—A game that was billed as one of the must-see events in high school baseball on Friday afternoon fell short of expectations as Steinert’s pitcher Kyle Muller shut down Gloucester Catholic 5-0. Heading into Friday’s contest Muller had 33 strikeouts and the Ram’s Ace, Tyler Mondile, had 27.
Two days ago, April 27, the Rams was listed as No. 1 in the top 10 non-public state baseball rankings by N.J.com . Earlier in the week, the game between Gloucester Catholic and Gloucester High was called because of rain. In the first inning of that contest the Rams put up 8 runs. That game will be played later.
But today the Rams bats were silent. Maybe it was the April showers and cool temperatures. Whatever it was Mondile got very little help at the plate from his teammates. Mondile lasted just six innings, walked one, struck out five, and allowed five runs.
The game was never in doubt after the first, as Steinert scored two runs on a two-run home run by Ryan Mostrangeli.
Steinert tacked on another two runs in the fifth. The inning looked promising, as Jake Beyer doubled, scoring Shane Keledy to kick things off.
