BOONSBORO - Everybody in the starting lineup hit safely for the Brunswick Railroaders on Monday.

As a result, the Railroaders steamrolled over the Boonsboro Warriors 14-1 in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League baseball game.

The game was stopped after five innings because of the 10-run rule.

"We had been stagnant with our offense for our last three games," Brunswick coach Roger Dawson said. "(Monday), we got some much-needed offense. That was probably our best offensive effort. We clicked one through nine today, which has been few and far between this year."

Brunswick (8-3 overall, 7-2 MVAL) started to pull away in the second when senior catcher Chris Baugher, who is the cleanup hitter in the batting order, hit a three-run homer to give the Railroaders a 6-1 lead.


"It's good to finally break out," Baugher said. "We have been in a funk for about a week. But (Monday), we finally showed up. We got our bats going good. Everybody hit real well. It was a good team effort."

In the fifth inning, Alan Webber hit a two-run homer for the Railroaders.

Wayne Toms finished with three runs scored and two RBI, while Matt Lastner added two runs scored and two RBI for Brunswick.

Senior Kevin Goode had a pair of doubles among his three hits for the Railroaders. Goode (4-0) gave up only one earned run and three hits while fanning six in four innings to get the win.

John Quail and Keith Kellinger hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning to produce the only run for Boonsboro (7-5 overall, 6-4 MVAL).

"Obviously, that is a game that we would just like to forget," Boonsboro coach Fred Kreiger said. "If we are smart, then that is what we should do. Tomorrow is another day. That is the great thing about baseball: there is always tomorrow."
