Tournament action continues to heat up, and JSZ has plenty of highlights!

Rutgers Prep 1 Ridge 0 | Somerset County Championship

Max Treonze threw a complete game six-hit shutout with no walks and 11 strikeouts to give the #12 seed a 1-0 stunner over Ridge snapping the Red Devils 14-game win streak.  The Argonauts opened the game with three straight hits and took a 1-0 lead on an Andrew Parisi RBI single.  That would prove to be the only run of the game as Connor Byrne and Treonze were both fantastic on the mound.  Ridge had its best chance in the bottom of the 7th but Byrne’s base hit to right saw Rutgers Prep gun down the runner at home looking to tie the game.
