EB was unabale to negotiate the ridiculous wind and the strike zone in a sloppy game against Abington. Too many fly balls were dropped by EB fielders, and too many 3-1 and 3-2 counts led to EB pitchers having to throw fast balls down the middle. DeAndrade pitched well in the loss and deserved better, and freshman Mike Kelly looked promising in relief.
