April 1, 2010St John's College High School
After surrendering the tying run in the previous inning, St. John's pitcher Mike Bowie took things into his own hands, literally.
The George Mason recruit led off the top of the sixth inning with his first home run of the season and sixth-ranked St. John's went to take a 7-3 victory over second-ranked DeMatha in a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference game on Tuesday.
Bowie finished 3 of 4 at the plate and allowed two runs in six innings to improve to 2-0 this season. Junior standout Nick Howard, who has committed to Virginia, also had two hits and walked twice for the Cadets (6-1, 4-1).
Navy recruit Kyle Riffe hit his third homer of the year for DeMatha (5-1, 3-1).
"I'm going to tell you what, this is going to be one heck of a year," said St. John's Coach Mark Gibbs, whose team was coming off a 4-3 loss to fourth-ranked Good Counsel on Saturday. "The level of play that I've seen in our five [WCAC] games overall has been as good as I can remember in a long time."
