Jake Schilling delivered a strong performance on Monday, pitching four solid innings and allowing just one run, leading the Philly Mummers to a 3-2 Opening Day victory over the Philly Fightin' Quakers at Gwynedd Mercy University. 
Schilling, a two-way player at Lycoming (Pennsbury) last season, threw 27 of his 40 pitches for strikes and recorded two strikeouts along with the victory. 
The Fightin' Quakers took an early 1-0 lead in the second inning on a passed ball. However, the Mummers responded with three runs in the fifth inning. Schilling tied the game by driving in a run after being hit by a pitch. Sam Serpiello (Council Rock South) followed by driving in another run on a double play, and RJ Agriss (Elizabethtown/North Penn) capped off the inning with an RBI double. 
The Fightin' Quakers scored again in the bottom of the sixth, narrowing the deficit to one run, but they couldn't get any closer. 
Bannon Brazell (Mercer CC) pitched the final two innings for the Mummers. He allowed a single in the seventh but then struck out the side to secure the win. 
Ryan Cavanaugh (Charleston Southern/Truman) also pitched well for the Fightin' Quakers, delivering four scoreless innings and allowing just two hits while striking out four. 
Matt Mays (Alvernia/Neshaminy) took the loss. 
The two clubs resume their three-game series on Tuesday at Skip Wilson Field.
