Mike Veit’s high pop up dropped into shallow center allowing David Glancy to score the game winning run in the top of the seventh inning and Austin Nappi went the distance in a 3-2 win over top seeded Toms River South. The Caseys scored in the top of the first on an error and TRS responded with a Tom Campo solo homer in the second inning. Glancy gave the Caseys a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning with an RBI double. The Indians drew even in the sixth inning thanks to back to back ground rule doubles by Justin Fall and Ben Montenegro.
