Up and down the St. John’s batting order, seniors contributed. Buonopane and Bragole were both 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs scored, Bingel scored twice, Bornstein went 3-for-3 with five RBI, Paul Crehan reached twice and scored once, Natty Carbal singled and scored, Tyler Noe was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded for an RBI and scored twice, Alex Moore went 2-for-2 with an RBI and two runs scored, and Zach Rice reached twice and scored both times.
“It was nice to get all the seniors involved, and it was really nice we were able to play all of them,” said Yanchus.
Senior Jack Burke (”He’s pitched great this year,” Yanchus said) picked up his second win of the season, allowing one hit and one earned run in three innings. He also struck out four and gave up an unearned run in the third. Classmate Mike Driscoll came on for the final two innings, walking one and striking out three.
The game was stopped after the top of the fifth because St. John’s was leading by more than 15 runs.
The 18 straight victories is the longest winning streak by a Prep team under Yanchus, and also matches the 1998 Eagles for the most regular season wins. The Eagles can make it 19 straight wins when they face rival Danvers at the Twi Field tomorrow night (6:30 p.m.).
