Posted Monday, March 26, 2012 by Tony Frascogna
With the score tied at 4 in the bottom of the 6th Matt Vogel (2 for 5, 2 HRs and 6RBI) hit his second three run homer of the game to spark a 13 run rally. Vogel hit the first one as the Raiders trailed 1-0 in the 4th. Peter Agnetti had three hits on the day and Justin Mercurio also hit a 3 run Home Run in the 6th.
Dan D'Onofrio pitched a solid 5 2/3 innings, striking out 9, to start for the Raiders. Dan Tierney picked up the win in relief pitching the final 1 1/3. Chris Van Eron, Richie Ciufo and Kevin Waszmer combined on a 5-4-3 double play to end a potential Commack rally early in the game. Pat-Med travels to Commack Tuesday for game two of the series.
