The Colonials pulled within a run in the top of the seventh inning had the bases loaded with two out, but Mark Costanzo’s scorching line drive found the glove of third baseman Sal Lombardo to end the game and give the Red Devils their second straight Central Jersey Group IV title.

With his team trailing 2-0, Matt Granato led off the top of the seventh with his second double of the game and moved to third on a wild pitch. Mike Belka and pinch-hitter Roberto Reyes drew consecutive walks to bring up leadoff hitter and shortstop Chris Cassandra with one out.

Hunterdon Central right-hander Alex Degen retired Cassandra on a pop-up in four territory, then hit Tom Holdorf on a 1-2 pitch to force in Freehold’s first run. Costanzo then smashed a shot that appeared ticketed for the left-field corner, but Lombardo got his glove up to make the back-handed snare.

The Red Devils scored both runs off Freehold Boro starter Dan Chiusano in the bottom of the third on a two-out RBI single by right fielder Collin Mason. The first run scored on the hit and second second came around when the throw to the plate in from left field skipped out of play.

 

Central Jersey Group III

(4) Allentown 4, (14) Neptune 3 (10 Innings)

Catcher Chris Reeder hit a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Redbirds (24-2) ended an improbable run by the No. 14 Scarlet Fliers (10-13) in a wild, extra-inning battle.

Allentown appeared to have the game won on a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth, but the umpires ruled that the runner who attempted to score never touched home plate after Neptune appealed the play.

Sebastian Jno-Baptiste tied the game with a two-out, two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning after Justin Tucker singled home Neptune’s first run one batter earlier.

Senior left-hander Dylan Taliaferro pitched into the eighth inning, allowing one earned run on six hits with no walks, one hit batter and seven strikeouts.

Joey Robertson and Vaugh Walker were each 1-for-2, with Walker scoring two runs and Robertson knocking in Southern’s sixth run with an RBI single in the fourth. Senior Pat Barrett also went 2-for-3 with a run scored.

Marcos Matias opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the first and Oddo made it 2-0 with his RBI single in the second. Cole Markley followed with a fielder’s choice RBI and Brown capped the inning with his two-run single.

Simone allowed two runs on two hits while walking three and striking out three in his 4 1/3 innings. Fillmore then came on and gave up three hits and no walks while striking out three during his scoreless outing.

Senior catcher Adam Schreck singled with two out in the seventh and after entering as the courtesy runner, Jaime stole second base. Galvan then lined a single into left field to bring home Jaime.

Muly struck out six and needed just 83 pitches to twirl his sectional final shutout. Manasquan will play Governor Livingston in Tuesday’s Group II semifinal after Governor Livingston beat South Plainfield on a walk-off three-run double in the Central Jersey Group II final.

Oczowski also singled in the game-tying run in the bottom of the sixth inning, effectively sending the game into extra innings.

CBA took a 2-1 lead with two runs in the top of the fourth inning, which included a Nick Hohenstein RBI single and an RBI double by Andrea Dalatri.

Junior Matt Barnes pitched the final two innings in taking the loss while sophomore starter Spencer Bauer held the Crusaders to one run over the first five innings.
