(13) Marlboro 5, (20) Raritan 4

Senior Julian Umanzor capped a three-RBI game with a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the seventh and the Mustangs prevailed with a first-round win over the Rockets to earn a round-of-16 date with No. 4 Colts Neck next Saturday.

Umanzor came to bat with runners on first and second in the bottom of the seventh after senior Julian Buchman walked with one out, stole second with two out and junior Alex D'Ambrosio was hit by a pitch. Marlboro's hottest hitter crushed a 1-1 pitch off the leftfield fence on a hop, scoring Buchman with the winning run.

Umanzor hit two RBI doubles earlier in the game, one to open the scoring in the bottom of the first inning and another in the bottom of the third to put Marlboro back on top, 2-1.

Marlboro held three different leads during the course of the game and Raritan came back to even the score each time prior to the bottom of the seventh. Senior Rob Scarola tied the game at 1-1 with an RBI single in the top of the third and an RBI groundout and an error drew the Rockets even, 3-3, in the top of the fourth.

D'Ambrosio drew a bases-loaded walk to give Marlboro the lead back in the bottom of the fifth, but Raritan came right back with a game-tying, RBI single by sophomore John Molnar.

Regular Season

Class A North

No. 5 CBA 6, Manalapan 3

Senior George Kruse slammed a tiebreaking two-run double in the bottom of the sixth and the Colts won a back-and-forth battle with the Braves.

Junior Cristian Bernardini gave Manalapan a 3-2 lead with a solo home run in the top of the sixth inning, but CBA struck back in the bottom of the frame. Junior Hunter Del Guercio hit a game-tying RBI single and a single by senior Gavin Kus set up Kruse with two runners on.

After Kruse doubled in the go-ahead runs, he capped the four-run inning by scoring on a wild pitch.

Manalapan jumped out to a 2-0 lead on a first-inning two-run single by senior Liam Martin. CBA pulled even with a bases-loaded walk by junior Zaine Toneske in the bottom of the third and a game-tying solo home run by senior Jack Frankovic in the bottom of the fifth.

Juniors Alex Stanyek and Dom Mallamachi combined on a five-inning no-hitter and the Caseys (8-2) buried the Spartans (6-5) with a six-run fifth inning to end the game via the 10-run rule.
