Class A North

No. 2 CBA 4, No. 10 Colts Neck 3

Senior John Dudek hit a tie-breaking, two-out RBI single to right in the top of the fifth inning and senior right-hander Nick Hohenstein pitched three scoreless innings to nail down a Colts win over the Cougars.

Hohenstein also split the left-center gap in the top of the third inning for a two-run double and scored the tying run on a sacrifice fly by Andrea Dalatri.

Joe Kohm punched a two-run double to right-center in the bottom of the first to open the scoring and scored on an RBI single by Colts Neck starter Hunter Boag.

Colts Neck put the potential tying run on base in the bottom of the seventh, but catcher Tom Rodgers threw out Nick Straub on an attempted steal of second base to end the game. Rodgers entered the game as a pinch-hitter for starter Mason Wolf and remained behind the plate for the final inning.
