Baseball: Sterling beats Overbrook

Eric Teesdale had two hits and struck out the side as a closer in the seventh inning as Sterling beat Overbrook, 6-3, Monday in a Colonial Liberty baseball game.

Teesdale, a senior, singled and scored in the first and doubled in the sixth as Sterling improved to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in Colonial play.

Sophomore Donovan Casey drove in three runs, scored twice and stole three bases for Sterling. Casey injured his hip while scoring on a bang-bang play at the plate in the seventh and could miss some time, according to Sterling coach Chris Hoffman.

Winning pitcher Connor Walsh (2-0) worked four innings and allowed one run.

Sterling junior left-fielder Andrew Mottola had an RBI double and also made a running catch in left-center that Overbrook coach Chuck Marciano called "the play of the game."

Senior third baseman Anthony Casterioto was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs for Overbrook (7-3, 3-2).
