Adrenaline Monday Shore Conference Baseball Scoreboard, 5/9/22
Monmouth County Tournament
(3) Middletown South 2, (10) Red Bank Catholic 0 (9 Innings)
Joe Stanzione blasted a game-winning, two-run homer on a 3-0 count in the bottom of the ninth and the Eagles walked off with dramatic win over the Caseys to secure a spot in the Monmouth County Tournament championship game.
Junior Ben Schild pitched 8 1/3 scoreless innings before handing the ball over to winning pitcher Evan Wood following a 107-pitch outing. Schild started the winning rally with a one-out walk in the bottom of the ninth, although he did not have to do much after reaching first base thanks to his teammate.
Stanzione got the green light on 3-0 and crushed a fastball over the leftfield wall for his Shore-Conference-leading eighth home run of the season.
Red Bank Catholic starter Alex Stanyek struck out Stanzione in a big spot in the bottom of the sixth. Stanzione stood in with the go-ahead run on third base -- the only runner of the game for either team to make it that far and just the second to get beyond first base -- and Stanyek froze him with a fastball on the outside corner for his 13th strikeout of his six-inning outing.
