JonMichael Rotondo and Aidan Supp blasted homers and the Caseys busted open a close game with a five run sixth inning to earn a 10-3 win over Freehold Boro and the Monmouth County Tournament championship. SSZ has the highlights and post-game reaction in our US Army Baseball Game of the Week
Red Bank Catholic 10 Freehold Boro 3
JonMichael Rotondo launched a two run home run to left to cap off a four run first inning and the Caseys scored nine of their ten runs with two outs to earn the Monmouth County championship. Brian Sheehy hit a towering pop up in the infield that dropped allowing the first two runs to score setting the stage for Rotondo’s blast. Freehold Boro answered with three runs in the top of the third highlighted by a Tom Holdorf two run double to right, but wouldn’t score after the outburst. Aidan Supp’s homer in the third gave RBC a two run cushion. Caseys starter Austin Nappi exited after four innings after getting close to his pitch limit and sophomore Vin Bianchi delivered three scoreless frames. RBC busted the game open with five runs in the bottom of the sixth. Mike Veit was named the championship game MVP after going 3-4 with two runs and an RBI. Holdorf was the losing pitcher, but only gave up one earned run as the Colonials were plagued by errors. RBC wins its first MCT since 2013 and ended a streak of three losses in the finals.
