Senior Shane Richey led off the top of the eighth with a single and scored the winning run on an RBI fielder's choice by senior Ryan Megill as the Crimson Knights beat the Lions in eight innings behind a complete-game effort by senior right-hander Matt Yard.

Richey advanced to second on a ground out, moved to third on a single by sophomore David Howarth and scored on Megill's grounder to shortstop, on which Middletown North failed to record an out. That allowed Wall to tack on one more run on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Lenneper.

Manchester 4, Jackson Liberty 3

The Hawks (2-0, 2-0) scored two runs when the Lions (1-1, 1-1) committed a throwing error on the back end of a potential game-ending double play to pull out a walkoff win and a second straight win to open the year. Senior Gavin Pabst drove in freshman James Johns with the game-tying run with his ground ball and senior Kirk Montanye scored the winning run scored from second on the error.

Senior left-hander Joe Felipe fired six strong innings but left with 101 pitches and the game still tied at 1-1 after sophomore Connor Keenan pulled Jackson Liberty even with an RBI single in the top of the fifth. Felipe allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out 10.

Senior Steven Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with an RBI to lead Manchester's offense, while senior Kyle Tavaska and sophomore Alex Torres each singled and scored a run for Jackson Liberty.

Matt Piro worked the first three innings on 36 pitches for Jackson Liberty and Rich Dordas fired three scoreless innings before running into trouble in the bottom of the seventh. Dordas struck out three, did not walk a batter, and threw 53 pitches.

James Cumber earned the win despite allowing two runs in the seventh while Nick DeCarlo took the loss.
