Barnegat 6, Manchester 5 (8 Innings)

Junior Dylan DeGrazio singled home the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning and the Bengals mounted an inspired late-inning rally to earn their first win of the season while also handing Manchester its first loss.

An RBI double by sophomore Jaihan Dominguez followed by a run-scoring error in the bottom of the sixth cut Manchester's lead from 3-0 to 3-2, but Hawks senior Joe Sclama answered with a two-run home run to push the lead back up to 5-2 in the top of the seventh.

Freshman Patrick Mackie was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to force in Barnegat's third run and Dominguez beat out an infield single with one out for his second RBI, cutting the Manchester lead to 5-4. Junior Quientin Torres then tied the game with a sacrifice fly that plated junior Tyler Carll.

Matawan 10, Raritan 9

Junior Andrew Gendi's fly ball to centerfield with two out in the bottom of the ninth got caught up in the sun and dropped to the outfield grass, scoring junior Matt DiPietro from second with the winning run and giving the Huskies a win over Rockets for their second walk-off victory in as many days.

Raritan scored four runs in the top of the seventh to turn a 7-5 deficit into a 9-7 lead, highlighted by a game-tying, two-run double by senior Robert Mulligan and a go-ahead sacrifice fly by senior Stephen McCabe, who also smashed a homer earlier in the game.

Matawan tied the game on a fielder's choice by DiPietro that scored two runs, with junior Chris Galasso scoring the tying run from second on the play thanks to some head's-up baserunning.
