Tigers Trounce Trojans, 7-1

Posted on:

Senior Jason Monper drove in three runs and earned the victory on the mound to lead North Allegheny to a 7-1 non-section win vs. McDowell on Tuesday afternoon.  Monper was 2 for 4 with two doubles personally providing enough run support to collect his second victory of the season. On the bump, the right-hander limited the Trojans to one unearned run and struck out three. Trevor Smith tossed three scoreless innings to earn the save.

Part of a 15-hit performance, six Tigers had multiple hits in the game. Josh Plichta and Mitch Machi collected three hits apiece. Blake Young, Dan McCauley and Garrett Hagen notched two hits each. McDowell pitcher Cody Ballay served up seven runs (six earned) in six innings on the mound.

North Allegheny, who earned a share of the Section 1-AAAA crown thanks to a Butler loss on Monday night, improves to 13-6 overall.  The Tigers will host Hempfield on Wednesday afternoon.
