Senior Matt Adamson pitched a four-hit shutout with three strikeouts and a walks over six innings and the Lions (15-10) bats stayed hot in a one-sided win over the Scarlet Fliers (10-11-1).

Middletown South 3, Steinert 0

Joe Stanzione belted his 14th home run of the season, tying the single-season Shore Conference record and sparking the Eagles (20-8) to their 20th win of the season.

Stanzione's two-run missile to left-centerfield in the bottom of the first inning pulled him even with former Jackson Memorial slugger Marc Fink, who crushed 14 home runs as a senior in 1994. Stanzione only made three trips to the plate on Saturday, dropping a bloop single into centerfield in his second at-bat and lofting a towering flyout to the edge of the warning track in left-center leading off the sixth.

Sophomore Brevin Bezick pitched five shutout innings to earn the win, with classmate Mason Christopher pitching a clean sixth and senior Evan Wood shutting the door in the seventh for his fifth save of the season. Bezick allowed three hits and a walk while striking out four.

Junior Ben Schild accounted for the other Middletown South run, driving in classmate Matt Silva with a sacrifice fly in the third.
