Camden Catholic baseball coach Bob Bergholtz was trying to give his offense a jolt, so he moved senior centerfielder Pete Galiano from the cleanup spot to leadoff.
Instead of a spark, the move created an all-out explosion.
Galiano hit three home runs as the Irish beat Gloucester, 18-4, last week in the Ralph Shaw Tournament at Audubon. In Camden Catholic's next game, an 11-3 loss to Cherokee, Galiano went 4 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs.
Galiano said he had never hit more than two home runs in a game at any level. And he was surprised when he achieved the feat.
