ROUNDUP: Mackin, Warren-Mott win pitching duel against De La Salle

Shane Mackin has become a steadying influence for the Warren-Mott baseball team.

The senior left-hander on Thursday turned in his second sterling performance in less than a week as he one-hit De La Salle in the Marauders’ 1-0 non-league road victory.

“He mixed his pitches well,” Warren-Mott coach Shawn Maloney said after Mackin struck out a season-high eight. “He kept the hitters off balance.”

Mackin last Saturday defeated Stevenson 2-1, handing the Titans their first defeat of the season.

Warren-Mott has won five games this season. Mackin has two of the victories for the team that is 5-17 overall.

“We’re starting to play better,” Maloney said. “We’re catching the ball better.”

The Marauders scored without a hit in the third inning.

Chad Velasco and Collin Skorupski walked. After two Marauders struck out, Velasco and Skorupski moved up a base on a wild pitch, and Velasco scored on another wild pitch.

De La Salle’s Zack Zschering also pitched a one-hitter. He allowed a one-out single by Pierson Heythaler in the sixth inning.

Zschering, a lefty, struck out 12.

Sam Badalamenti got the Pilots’ hit against Mackin, a two-out, line-drive single in the sixth.

Warren-Mott plays Grosse Pointe North at home Friday.
