Manteno scored two runs in the seventh on an RBI double by catcher Ryan Sample. Second baseman Joey DiLeo reached base four times in the game for Manteno. He scored three runs and had one RBI. DiLeo singled in the third and seventh innings.
Manteno piled up the steals, swiping 10 bags in all. Kevin Sloat, Adam Schaeffer, Jason Morgan, Andrew Fortenberry, and Billy Liss each had one stolen base, J.J. Witherow had two stolen bases, and DiLeo had three stolen bases.
Junior Jason Morgan got his second win of the season, pitching 5-1/3 innings, allowing only 3 base hits and 2 earned runs. He struck out 2 and walked five. Senior Billy Liss allowed just 2 hits, 2 walks and one unearned run in relief.
The Panthers (5-0) will host Immaculate Conception HS on Wednesday in Manteno. The first pitch is scheduled for 4:30 pm.
