St. Joes Metuchen – 4 Don Bosco Prep – 1
St. Joseph Metuchen gave a new meaning to playing “lights out” baseball on Saturday night. Falcons had a 1-0 lead after 3 innings when the lights went out at Don Bosco Prep due to an electrical problem, a 20 minute delay followed before play would resume. The lights may have came back on, but the St. Joes defense kept Don Bosco in the dark. The Falcons, led by pitchers Nicolas Estes (Win) and Jake Hellwig (Save), shut down the ironmen offense and got a 4-1 win on the road. Watch the Highlights from Ramsey on JSZ.
