(13) Manalapan 3, (4) Marlboro 2
Chris Silva worked a base-loaded walk with one out in the top of the seventh to force in the winning run and right-hander Joe Dionisio finished off a complete-game with eighth strikeouts to send the Braves past the rival Mustangs and into the sectional quarterfinals Thursday at No. 5 East Brunswick.
Each team scored two runs in consecutive half-innings -- all of which were unearned -- to set up the 2-2 tie that held up until the top of the seventh. An error on a potential fielder's choice groundout extended Marlboro's inning in the bottom of the third and Gavin McCarthy made the Braves pay with a two-run double to leftfield for a 2-0 Mustangs lead.
Manalapan came right back with two runs in the top of the fourth, which scored on a throwing error by pitcher Alex D'Ambrosio that scored a run from second and another from first. A botched suicide squeeze cost Manalapan a chance to add another run in the inning, as D'Ambrosio closed it out with a strikeout after the Mustangs picked off the runner at third.
Manalapan's winning rally included a leadoff walk and a hit-by-pitch that sandwiched a pinch-hit single by Jake Schwinger. Silva took a borderline 2-2 pitch that was called a ball and the 3-2 pitch missed high to force home Manalapan's third run. Silva also walked an scored in the fourth.

Central Jersey Group III
(3) Middletown North 3, (14) Hamilton West 2
Sophomore Gabe Ahlemeyer drove in what proved to be the deciding run and pitched 6 2/3 innings before turning the ball over to classmate Zach Hampton to finish off a tense round-one win for the Lions (14-8) over the Hornets (9-16).
Ahlemeyer's RBI single extended Middletown North's lead to 3-0 in the fourth inning after Dylan Briggs scored on a heads-up baserunning play earlier in the inning. With the bases loaded, he broke for home on a pickoff attempt to first and scored to make it a 2-0 Lions lead.
In the top of the seventh inning, Hamilton West loaded the bases and scored on a walk and a fielder's choice that did not net an out. With his team clinging to a one-run lead and Ahlemeyer past the 110-pitch limit, Hampton took the mound and induced a game-ending groundball out to keep Middletown North's Group III title defense alive.
Mike Hallard opened the scoring with an RBI single in the bottom of the third that scored Ian McGoldrick, who doubled his way into scoring position.
Mark Meara allowed just five hits and struck out nine in a complete-game loss for Hamilton West.
Middletown North will host No. 6 Allentown in Thursday's sectional quarterfinal round.
(15) Northern Burlington 4, (2) Brick Memorial 3
Nick Dromboski hit a game-tying sacrifice fly in the top of the sixth and Ryan Kochie added the go-ahead sac fly in the following inning as the Greyhounds (11-13) stunned the Mustangs (16-9), handing Brick Memorial a second straight season-ending loss as a No. 2 seed to a No. 15 seed in the Central Group III opening round.
Brady Leach jumpstarted Brick Memorial with a two-run home run in the bottom of the third inning as part of a 2-for-4 game at the plate.
Northern Burlington responded with two runs in the top of the second inning before Brick Memorial regained the lead on a one-man effort by Jimi Popp. Popp singled with two out, stole second and advanced to third on an overthrow, then scored on a passed ball to make it a 3-2 Mustangs lead.
Nick Garbooshian took allowed two earned runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings and 106 pitches. Brick Memorial committed three errors in the game, leading to the unearned run against Garbooshian, as well as an unearned run against losing pitcher Mike Gioia.

Legere then tied it with a two-run double and winning pitcher Zach Szatkowski traded places with him on a go-ahead RBI double.

(10) Delran 2, (7) Raritan 0
The Rockets' (14-11) surging offense worked eight walks against two Bears (13-7-1) pitchers, but could not cash in, losing for just the second time in 13 games and bowing out in the CJ III opening round.
Raritan's offense managed five hits -- all singles -- with Jobby Dekis (1-for-2, two walks) reaching base three times to lead the way.
Phil Kramer worked 4 1/3 innings in taking the loss, with Dan Moreno taking care of the remaining 2 2/3 scoreless frames.

(15) Manasquan 5, (2) Governor Livingston 2
Kevin Prime hit a tiebreaking RBI single and Connor Voelkson delivered a pair of insurance runs with his two-run double that capped a three-run rally and backed ace Cullen Condon in the Warriors' first-round upset of the second-seeded Highlanders.
With its three runs in the top of the fifth, Manasquan took the lead for the third time in the game, with Governor Livingston answer with the tying run in the bottom-half of the inning each of the first two times Manasquan scored.
In the bottom of the fifth, Governor Livingston threatened with runners on first and second and one out, but Condon induced an inning-ending double-play, with second baseman Connor Malysa starting it and shortstop Austin Griffith on the turn.
Condon then set down the final six batters in order, including three via strikeouts.
Dylan Vowteras was responsible for plating each of Manasquan's first two runs. The sophomore singled home the first run of the game in the top of the first and gave the Warriors a 2-1 lead with a sacrifice fly in the third. He also drew a walk ahead of and scored on Voelkson's double in the fifth.
George Provel doubled home the tying run in the bottom of the first and Governor Livingston struck with a safety squeeze to tie it up again in the bottom of the second.
Manasquan will travel again in the sectional quarterfinal round on Thursday, this time to play No. 10 Delran after the Bears knocked off red-hot Raritan in their first-round road game.
