The Gloucester Dukes opened the Peninsula District baseball season with a 13-6 win in six innings at Phoebus on Tuesday. The game was called after six due to darkness. Aaron O’Neil picked up his first 2011 win on the mound after pitching five and two-thirds innings, and Jacob Brown closed out the game.
The Dukes put up eight runs in the second inning for an early lead and tacked on three more in the third. They also scored in the fourth and sixth innings and combined for 13 hits in the win.
