PAWTUCKET â€” Mount St. Charles is starting to look a bit like the baseball program that captured two straight Division II state titles before joining Division I this season.
The Mounties won their second Division I game in four days on Monday, breaking open a tight contest against St. Raphael Academy with a seven-run rally in the fifth inning en route to a 10-3 victory.
Mount, now 2-3 in Division I, got a complete-game pitching performance from junior Taylor Sutherland, who scattered seven hits and settled in after allowing single runs in both the first and second innings.
Kyan Andersonâ€™s future regarding whether heâ€™ll play basketball at Providence College is still very much up in the air.
The same cannot be said for fellow recruit Markus Crider.
