Iona commit Andrew Gaines earned the win on the mound, allowing just one earned run in four innings of relief. Austin Sofran and Bryant commit Kyle Neri each drove in a pair of runs in the win for top-seeded St. Augustine (19-1). Carter Williams drove in three runs for fourth-seeded Kingsway (19-4) in the loss. The Hermits will face seventh-seeded Lenape for the title on Wednesday night in Pitman.
