WILLIAMSPORT - There wasn't much left for manager Rick McQuillen to say.

Brunswick Post 96's bats did all the talking for him.

Brunswick had eight of its nine starters share 18 hits in a 14-7 rout of Williamport Post 202 in a Western Maryland District American Legion game.

"The hitting almost spoke for itself," McQuillen said. "That is pretty impressive when you have a bunch of hits and RBIs. I think that we have got a good offensive team. We have been hitting and scoring runs well so far. We will be in the ballgames."

Willie McLane led Brunswick with four hits, while Andy Maught and Rickey McQuillen added three each for Brunswick (2-1, 2-1). Maught had a home run and three RBIs. Scott Crawford and Tim Biser added two hits each for Brunswick.


"Brunswick played a better game than us and they deserved to win," Williamsport manager Scott Jennings said. "They swung the bats well today and they put the ball in play. We didn't make the plays defensively and we didn't pitch well. We have given up 26 runs in the last two games. We are going to have to pick it up a notch, if we want to stay competitive in the league."

Matt Bowman led Williamsport with four hits and four RBIs, while Isaac Henry added three hits for Williamsport. Derek Hoffman gave up no earned runs and only two hits, while striking out nine batters, in 4 2/3 innings of relief for Williamsport (1-2 district, 8-2 overall).

Brunswick jumped out to a 8-0 lead, using a five-run third inning. Crawford had a two-run single, while Muscar had an RBI double by Muscar and Maught drove in a run with a single.

Williamsport battled back to withing 9-6 with five runs in the seventh on a three-run homer by Bowman and RBI singles by Les Martin and Clint Lapole.

Brunswick countered with Kevin Goode's two-run homer in the eighth.

After Williamsport got a run in the bottom of the eighth on an RBI single by Henry. Brunswick finished the scoring with three runs in the ninth on an RBI single by McQuillen and a two-run double by McLane.
