BERLIN- Stephen Decatur’s varsity baseball team dropped a well-pitched, well-played game to Colonel Richardson on Monday, ending a bizarre first week that also included two wins and a suspended game.

The Seahawks opened the season with a 3-1 win over Wicomico last week. The next day, Decatur faced familiar rival Bennett on the road and the game was suspended with the two teams tied at 1-1 in the 10th inning because of darkness.

Last Friday, the Seahawks battled back against Northampton, scoring three runs in the top of the seventh to pull out the 8-6 win and improve to 2-1 on the season. On Monday, finally at home, Decatur lost a pitcher’s duel to Colonel Richardson, 1-0, collecting just two hits in the contest.

The Seahawks now have two straight on the road including Friday’s game at Kent Island, followed by Wicomico on the road next Monday. Decatur faces Snow Hill at home next Thursday, followed by a home game against Nandua next Friday.
