An early lead helped the Bishop McNamara junior high varsity baseball team to top Momence 13-3 in Friday night baseball action.
The Irish jumped out early crossing the plate six times in the first inning on a walk by Nolan Czako, a single by Matthew Allen, walks by Dalton Clodi and Chance Zimmerman, and a single by Colton Provost.
Momence put up three runs in the third inning, but the Irish bats were more than Redskin pitching could handle.
Matthew Allen earned the win for Bishop Mac logging five innings, surrendering three runs, four hits, and striking out three.
The Irish hitters collected nine hits, with Bryce Hiatt, Allen, and Rj Dalton each collecting multiple hits. Colton Provost and Dalton Clodieach drove in two runs.
