Class A North

No. 9 Middletown South 6, No. 6 Howell 1

Senior Ben Schild homered in each of his first two at-bats on the way to a five-RBI game and the Eagles upended the Rebels to snap their second three-game losing streak during the early part of the season.

Schild belted a three-run home run in the top of the first inning -- his first round-tripper since he homered in Middletown South's NJSIAA Central Jersey Group IV win over Hunterdon Central as a sophomore in 2021. The UConn commit then slammed a solo shot in the top of the third and later added a sacrifice fly in the sixth to cap his five-RBI performance.

No. 1 Ranney 10, Neptune 8 (8 Innings)

Senior Lou Spadafora delivered a clutch, two-out, two-run single in the top of the eighth inning and classmate Diego Tavarez closed out an extra-inning win for the Panthers over the upset-minded Scarlet Fliers.

Senior Quincy Esannason ignited the four-run rally with an RBI double and two Ranney errors opened the door for the final three runs of the second.

Ranney tied the game in the top of the sixth with a sacrifice fly by senior Jack Tallent. Spadafora drove in a run in both the first and fourth innings with a bases-loaded walk and a ground out, giving him four RBI for the game.

After Ranney put up three runs in the top of the first, Neptune answered with a two-run double by senior Joe Juliano, who also pitched 4 1/3 strong innings of relief before ultimately taking the hard-luck loss.
