SPRINGFIELD, NJ - After a disappointing first round loss at Westfield in the Union County Tournament on Monday, the Dayton baseball team wasted no time in getting back on the right side of the ledger on Tuesday.

Junior William Hodic had two hits with three RBI and two runs scored and senior Joe Kastner allowed one hit over 3 1/3 innings with an earned run, two walks, and six strikeouts to power Dayton to a 12-2 six-inning victory over Plainfield in Springfield.

“Today's performance was great. Everybody was still a little shaken up after we had a tough loss on Monday, but we forgot about that after the first pitch and went to work,” said Kastner, who improved his record to 5-0 on the season. “It was great to get back out there and we got better as a team.”

Senior Matthew Pavick had two hits with a double, an RBI, and a run scored and junior Jeffrey Carrier posted an RBI-single for Dayton, which won for the second time in its last five games.

The Bulldogs finish up its mini two-game home stand at historic Ruby Field Thursday against rival Brearley, with first pitch scheduled at 4 p.m.
