KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Kellan Huang drove in a career-high four runs and pitcher Mitch Shedlowsky allowed one run on three hits over seven innings to power Albion College to an 11-2 victory over Illinois College in spring break baseball action on Thursday.
A sophomore second baseman who prepped at Saline High School, Huang blasted three-run homerun in the third. It was Huang's first homerun of the season and the third of his career.
Shedlowsky (1-1), a senior from Waterford, Mich., retired the first six Illinois College batters in order. He worked around an error to the leadoff batter in the third and did not allow a hit until Cade Hennemann produced a single with one out in the fourth. Shedlowsky allowed a run on three hits while striking out six.
Albion led the entire game, scoring twice in the first as Andrew Arszulowicz drew a bases loaded walk and Huang hit a RBI single.
Albion added an insurance run in the ninth when Justin Charron and Arszulowicz slugged back-to-back doubles.
Stesiak, Albion's leadoff hitter, went 2-for-3 with a walk, two doubles and two runs scored. Jordyn Finney, the cleanup hitter, also went 2-for-3 with a walk. Arszulowicz went 1-for-3 with two walks.
Albion (3-3) travels to Auburndale for a Friday morning game against Penn State University-New Kensington.
