John Blanco ’23 tossed four innings of relief and belted a huge three-run homer to lift Mercersburg’s varsity baseball team past host Episcopal High School, 8-5, in a game played March 29 in Alexandria, VA.

The Blue Storm fell behind 4-1 before a five-run fourth inning (including Blanco’s three-run shot) gave Mercersburg the lead for good. Blanco was 3-for-4 at the plate and allowed one run and two hits while striking out four over the final four innings on the mound.

Tommy Tereschuk ’22 had two hits and Gavin Williams ’24 drove in a pair of runs for the Storm (2-2). Caleb Newcomer ’23 scored two runs.

Mercersburg hosts local rival St. Maria Goretti Wednesday, March 30, at Cannon Field (4:30 p.m.).
