Class A Central
Monmouth 3, Holmdel 1
Fifth-year senior Aiden Denton lost his bid for a no-hitter with two out in the bottom of the seventh inning, but still finished off a 15-strikeout one-hitter as the Falcons completed a sweep of the Hornets.
Denton completed six innings without allowing a hit, walk or hit batter, with Holmdel's lone baserunner reaching on an error in the second inning. That streak ended when Denton hit senior Tim Haggerty with a pitch with one out and after a groundout moved Haggerty to second base, junior James Vallillo singled to break up the no-hit bid and score Holmdel's lone run.
Monmouth opened the scoring with two runs in the top of the fourth inning, with senior Joey Esposito leading off with a single, stealing second base and scoring on an error. Sophomore Alejandro Ocelotl added a second run with a two-out RBI double.
Fifth-year senior Christian Zito provided an insurance run in the top of the seventh with a sacrifice fly.

Senior Dan Calicari scored from third on a groundout to third base by sophomore Travis Evensham in the bottom of the sixth and the Rockets pulled out a win over the Bulldogs after nearly picking off Rumson on the road on Tuesday.
Calicari froze on the groundball to third with his secondary lead intact, then broke as soon as Rumson third baseman Aaron Del Tin threw the ball to first and slid in safely ahead of the throw home with a head-first slide.
Calicari also drove in a run during a three-run fourth innings by Raritan, as did sophomore Sean Burnett.
Rumson tied the game in the top of the sixth on back-to-back RBI doubles by junior Jack Riva and senior Cade LaGrassa.
