Senior Andrew Gonzalez delivered a tiebreaking RBI single with two out in the top of the ninth and senior Nico Gonzalez followed with a pinch-hit, two-run single to help the Caseys pull out an extra-inning win over the rival Colts to reach the MCT quarterfinals Sunday at Freehold Twp.
Red Bank Catholic's defense picked up junior starter Alex Stanyek and winning pitcher Steve Svenson with four double-plays in the final four innings, including a game-ending double-play started by Svenson after snaring a comebacker to the mound.
Svenson took over with a runner on first and none out in the bottom of the eighth and got out of trouble thanks to a double-play and a strikeout.
CBA starter Colin Reilly also leaned on double-plays to get out of both the seventh and eighth unscathed, with Colts senior second baseman Alexey Stout making an acrobatic stop on a hard shot by Caseys senior shortstop Matt Scrivanic and starting the 4-6-3, double play for the first two outs of the eighth. Reilly then induced a pop-up to shortstop Harrison Campi to end his day.
CBA jumped on top with an RBI single by junior Hunter Del Guercio in the bottom of the first inning -- the first hit of the season allowed by Stanyek. The Caseys junior right-hander went 9 2/3 innings before allowing his first hit and his 13 strikeouts Saturday were a career-best.
RBC pulled even in the top of the fifth on a solo home run to left-center by senior Jake Jacobson. After tying the game in the fifth, Jacobson also drew a walk and scored during the winning rally in the ninth.
