April 28, 1988 Scott Newton hits a grand slam and Marian uses an eight-run inning to help gain a 10-0 Schuylkill League victory over Jim Thorpe. Joe Gillespie allows just one hit in five shutout innings to earn the pitching win. Gillespie also collects three hits, two of them doubles, and knocks in three runs. The Colts, who turn a close 2-0 contest into a 10-run rule win with their big fifth frame, also receive a triple and single off the bat of John Gildea.
