Tri-Cape knocks off Mercer County in an all-New Jersey Carpenter Cup final in our OceanFirst Bank Game of the Week!

Tri-Cape 5 Mercer County 3

The best of New Jersey baseball was on full display in the finals of the 2021 Phillies Carpenter Cup. Tri-Cape (players from the Tri-County Conference and Cape-Atlantic League) made it a day to remember, defeating Mercer County to win its first Carpenter Cup championship in tournament history. Highland’s Adam Aquilino capped off a four-run, two-out rally in the third inning with a two-RBI single. Hammonton’s Jared Beebe, Holy Spirit’s Trevor Cohen, and Ocean City’s Gannon Brady each knocked in a run in the win. Hun’s Ben Petrone hit a solo home run in the loss for Mercer County. Woodstown’s Chase Swain was named the tournament’s most valuable player.
