Hunter Rich earned the save, striking out four batters in a wild bottom of the seventh. A.J. Campbell went 3 for 4 with three RBIs in the loss for the Red Raiders.

Senior pitcher and Washington College (D-III) commit John Grill put together a career day for the Highlanders. Grill served up a pair of home runs, 5 RBI’s and also pitched four innings of one-run ball to help Gov. Livingston top Westfield in a 12-1 mercy rule finish.

Red Bank Catholic 10 Holmdel 5
RBC came from behind twice to prevent an upset and complete a two game sweep of their Shore Conference divisional foe. The Hornets raced out to a 3-0 lead sparked by an Ezra Caspi two run homer in the first and then staked out to a 5-4 advantage in the 5th following a two run single by Brett Hilscheimer. But RBC scored two in the bottom of the 5th to take the lead and tacked on four runs in the 6th highlighted by a two run bomb courtesy of Ryan O’Hara.
