Day 11 - Seventh Intrasquad: Marc Kaiser, Pat Reilly and Brian Anderson limited the white team to three hits over seven innings and sophomore Greg Powers was 2-for-3 with three RBIs as the Gray team downed the White team 7-1.
Kaiser, the starting pitcher for the Gray team, was nearly perfect over four innings of work. The sophomore righty gave up only a lone single in his final inning, but was the beneficiary of a diving catch by Clayton Bried in center on a line drive off the bat of Brad Hassey that doubled up the runner at first for two outs.
The Grays did the majority of their damage in the sixth inning, scoring four runs off of reliever Kevin Rupprecht. Four different players recorded RBIs in the inning, including Powers who had a two run double earlier in the game.
Will Thompson hit his first home run as a Wildcat and Richard Mercado hit his second of the fall to account for the White team's lone run. Freshman Chris Marini went 2-for-3 with two runs scored for the Gray team.
