Andrew Beam drove home a pair of runs in both the 6th and 7th innings to spark a Freehold Township 5-2 win over Middletown South in the opening round of the Shore Conference Baseball Tournament.  SSZ has the highlights of the Patriots road win

Freehold Township 5 Middletown South 2

Zack Pericone’s sacrifice fly to right field in the top of the 7th proved to be the game winning hit as the Patriots score two runs in the sixth inning and three more in the seventh to advance in the Shore Conference Baseball Tournament.  Andrew Beam was 3-4 with 4 RBI’s for the Patriots.  His two-run single in the sixth tied the game at two and he delivered some insurance with two more runs plated in the seventh to make it a 5-2 game.  Pericone pitched the final 3.2 innings to pick up the win in relief.  Freehold Township heads to 2nd seed Monmouth Regional on Saturday in the Round of 16.  Watch the highlights of a big Patriots win on Wednesday afternoon:
