Builders’ General Baseball Thursday Shore Conference Tournament Scoreboard, May 11
Shore Conference Tournament
(7) Middletown North 16, (26) Henry Hudson 3 (5 Innings)
The Lions coasted to their ninth win in the last 10 games and earned a round-of-10 home game Saturday against No. 10 Ocean.
(9) Brick Memorial 6, (24) Freehold Twp. 0
Chase Cohen took a no-hitter into the fifth inning and finished off a one-hit shutout to pitch the Mustangs past the Patriots and into the SCT round of 16.
Brick Memorial quickly gave Cohen all the scoring he would need, with Nicco Maribo slamming the first of his two doubles to lead off the bottom of the first and scoring on an RBI single by catcher Joe Nolan.
The Mustangs added to the lead in the third, starting with an RBI single by Nick Garbooshian, followed by a two-run single by Devante Noriega to stretch the margin to 4-0.
Tyler Garbooshian capped the scoring with an RBI single in the fifth after the fifth Brick Memorial run scored on an error.
The Mustangs have now won nine straight games and will attempt to extend the streak to 10 Friday at Donovan Catholic in the Ocean County Tournament semifinals. Regardless of that outcome, Brick Memorial will travel to play No. 8 Marlboro Saturday in the SCT round of 16.

(10) Ocean 5, (23) Neptune 3
Shane Garrett drove in a run during Ocean's three-run rally in the second inning and delivered some needed insurance with a two-run single in the bottom of the fourth as the Spartans held off the Scarlet Fliers in the third meeting in seven days between the two Class B North rivals.
Dylan Lazar drew a bases-loaded walk with one out to tie the game at 1-1 and Garrett followed with a sacrifice fly that put Ocean in front to stay. A balk allowed Nick Case to score the third run of the inning.
Neptune got a run back on an RBI groundout by Joe Juliano in the third, but Ocean responded with two runs in the fourth on two-run single by Garrett.
Ocean advances to the round of 16 Saturday, when the Spartans will travel to play No. 7 Middletown North.

(15) Point Beach 4, (18) Lacey 3
Danny Lubach singled home what proved to be the deciding run in the bottom of the sixth inning and the Garnet Gulls hung on to top the Lions, securing a spot in Saturday's round of 16 at No. 2 Red Bank Catholic.
Tommy Conroy gave Point Beach a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the second with an RBI single that capped a two-run rally in the inning.
Catcher Carson Gudzak staked Lacey to a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first inning, but Point Beach's pitching did not break again until the seventh inning, when Gudzak cracked an RBI double and scored on a balk to cut the deficit to one run.
Kyle Kolans drove in a run during a 1-for-3 game at the plate and, most notably, his services on the mound were not required thanks to strong efforts by Jackson Killian, Liam Dolan and Bryan Matuschat. Kolans has been Point Beach's top option on the mound and will be available to start against a talented RBC squad on Saturday.

(16) Matawan 2, (17) St. Rose 0
Bryan McCartin singled home the first run of the game in the first and Branon Falco smoked an RBI triple in the fourth to give junior right-hander Andrew Gendi all the offense he would need in order to pitch the Huskies to a round-one, shutout victory over the Purple Roses.
Matawan advances to play top-seeded Ranney, which will be the third time the Class B North opponents meet this season after Ranney swept the regular-season series by a combined margin of 29-8. Neither of those games featured an appearance on the mound by Falco, who will be fully eligible to start Saturday's round-of-16 game in Tinton Falls.

(8) Marlboro 9, (25) Point Boro 2
Paul Santos broke a 2-2 tie with an RBI single in the fifth and Alex D'Ambrosio and Danny Talarico each clubbed run-scoring doubles during a five-run fifth -- game-altering inning that carried the Mustangs to a round-one win over the Panthers.
D'Ambrosio and Talarico hit back-to-back RBI singles to tie the game in the bottom of the fourth inning and after Mustangs went up, 4-2, D'Ambrosio connected on a two-run double and Talarico followed with a double of his own to score D'Ambrosio.
D'Ambrosio also pitched up the win with 10 strikeouts and only three hits allowed -- one of which was a two-run home run by Bryson Kirby in the third that catapulted Point Boro into the early lead.
Alex Frank took over on the mound for D'Ambrosio to start the sixth and struck out every one of the six batters he faced.
Marlboro moves on to Saturday's round of 16 to face streaking No. 8 Brick Memorial -- winners of nine straight after beating Freehold Township in round one on Thursday.

(20) Shore 16, (13) Monmouth 6 (5 Innings)
Catcher E.J. Stefanelli circled the bases in each of the first two innings and finished with five RBI to key a Blue Devils rout of the Falcons that sends Shore into the round of 16 Saturday at Rumson-Fair Haven.
Stefanelli opened the scoring with a two-run home run over the left-centerfield fence in the top of the second inning, plating John Dunleavy after Dunleavy tripled to right with two out. In the top of the second, Stefanelli scorched a two-run single to center and raced all the way around the bases when the ball skipped past centerfielder Will Theobald for a three-base error.
Shore led 8-0 after two innings and Jeff Barham made it nine with a solo home run to lead off the third inning -- part of a 3-for-3 day for Barham.
Monmouth crushed three home runs in the game, with Christian Zito hitting the top of the farthest portion of the bleachers from home plate, Evan Booth clearing the bleachers for a three-run homer and Mike Milevoi drilling a spot halfway up the bleachers in left on a line.

(14) Manasquan 5, (19) Holmdel 0
Manasquan capitalized on two Holmdel errors in the first inning by plating two runs and Connor Malysa put the game out of reach with a bases-clearing triple in the bottom of the sixth as the Warriors blanked the Hornets behind six two-hit innings by senior ace Cullen Condon.
Centerfielder Brett Patten denied Holmdel's most dangerous scoring bid by running down a fly ball by Matt Iulo deep into the right-center gap with a runner on second base in the first inning.
Manasquan moves on to play at No. 3 Donovan Catholic in the round of 16 on Saturday.

(12) Southern 8, (21) Manchester 1
Shortstop Brian Harper doubled home the tiebreaking run in the bottom of the third and picked up another RBI in a five-run Southern fourth as the Rams pulled away for a win over the Hawks that earns them the second of two tournament games at No. 5 Jackson Memorial in two days.
Dom Miranda gave Southern a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning and Manchester responded in the top of the second with an RBI single by Patrick McKay. Harper's double in the third made it 2-1 and Miranda made it 3-1 when he scored on a passed ball later in the inning.
Harper worked a bases-loaded walk to make it 4-1 and after Gabe Tomei was hit by a pitch for force home the fifth Southern run, Niko Diamantopoulos roped a single that plated two more runs and put the game on ice. Kyle Serino added an RBI single for good measure, capping the five-run rally in the fourth.
Southern will travel to Jackson Memorial for a 4:45 p.m. start in the Ocean County Tournament semifinals on Friday evening, then go back to Jackson on Saturday for the SCT round of 16. The two Class A South rivals are also slated to play one more time during divisional play, although a date has not been set for that game -- which will be at Southern and will determine the winner of the A South championship.

(11) Toms River East 12, (22) Jackson Liberty 2 (5 Innings)
Jake Verdon opened the scoring with a two-run single in the first and the Raiders blew the game open with six runs in the bottom of the fourth in a one-sided, round-one win over the Lions.
Bobby Sabatino cleared the bases with a double in the six-run rally, then scored on an RBI double by Ryan Ushock to make it 9-2. Jake Buatez added a two-run single in the inning and Sabatino capped his three-hit game with an RBI single that activated the 10-run rule in the bottom of the fifth.
Toms River East moves on to face No. 6 CBA Saturday in the round of 16.

Manalapan 4, Old Bridge 3 (8 Innings)
Cristian Bernardini delivered the game-winning RBI in the bottom of the eighth inning and the Braves (7-12-1) knocked off the Knights -- the No. 12 team in the NJ Advance Media statewide rankings -- to end a three-game skid.
Bernardini finished 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBI and Erik Johnson was 2-for-4 with a run scored to lead the offense.
Leo Vitale earned the win with two scoreless innings of relief after Dylan Shaffer struck out 10 over six innings for Manalapan.
CBA 8, Seton Hall Prep 7
Harrison Campi lifted a sacrifice fly to plate the winning run in the bottom of the seventh and the Colts (15-4-1) battled for a win over the Pirates in a back-and-forth showdown.
Campi finished 1-for-4 with two runs scored, James Nitti went 3-for-4 with three runs, and both Zaine Toneske (two RBI) and Wyatt Hunt each went 2-for-4 for CBA, which tied the game in the bottom of the seventh when Will Fahey was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.
Toneske earned the win in relief, giving up two unearned runs in his one inning of work -- Seton Hall Prep's two-run seventh. Freshman Danny DiTullio struck out six over 5 1/3 innings as the CBA starter.
