Big 5th inning propels CBA to state quarterfinals

Watch highlights of CBA’s 5-1 state playoff win over Pingry

 

Christian Brothers Academy used a four run 5th inning to propel the Colts to a 5-1 win over Pingry in the Non-Public, South A state baseball tournament.  The game was suspended on Friday after two scoreless innings and the home team trailed 1-0 in the fifth.   Coach Marty Kenney’s team got going starting with a Trey Nelson RBI single to right that scored Andrew Buccalotto.  Then, Ryan Ramiz laid down a high bunt on the third base line.  Ramiz beat the throw to first and pinch runner Brendan Shaw slid under the tag to give CBA a 2-1 lead.  John Moschella capped off the four run frame with an RBI single to make it 4-1.

The Colts will face Paul VI on Tuesday after the #12 seed upset St. Joseph’s Metuchen 14-0.  CBA is also alive in the Shore Conference Tournament.  The Colts face RBC on Wednesday in Red Bank.
