The most important part of any tournament is getting off to a great start. Dillon Moyer did just that, sending a 3-2 fastball into the center field ivy for a leadoff homerun -- his first of the season. Two batters later, John Ryan Murphy hit a blast well over the 365' sign in right center, and the rout was on.
IMG Academy proceeded to score 10 runs in the bottom of the first, taking the wind out of the (6A class) South Dade Buccaneers' sails. Casey Mulholland led the offense with two hits and two RBI. Nick Mace also had a pair of hits, including a double and RBI.
Blaze Tart picked up the win and improved to 7-0 on the year, while adding a two-run single of his own. Tyler Rubino came in and pitched two shutout innings in relief. The game was called before the 5th inning due to the mercy rule, with a final score of 10-0.
The team will next face University School from Ft. Lauderdale, FL at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday.
