Ocean County Tournament


(3) Jackson Memorial 12, (7) Point Beach 2 (6 Innings)

Tyler Huzzy and Nick Izzi hit back-to-back solo home runs to help the Jaguars close out a convincing win over the previously-unbeaten Garnet Gulls and reach the Ocean County Tournament championship game for the second time in three years.

Jackson Osmond hit an RBI double to put Jackson Memorial ahead, 4-1, in the second inning and Dane Jorgensen made it 6-2 with a two-run single in the bottom of the fourth. Huzzy stretched the lead to 9-2 with his solo shot in the fifth and Izzo followed right after with his six longball of the season -- good for second in the Shore Conference.

Izzo later ended the game with an RBI single to activate the 10-run-rule in the bottom of the sixth.

(1) Toms River East 3, (13) Toms River South 2

Left-hander Brendan Lavin came out of the Toms River East bullpen and retired all 10 batters he faced to shut down the Indians and send the Raiders to the Ocean County Tournament championship game for the first time since 2018.

Luke Brush gave Toms River East a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third with a two-run single but Toms River South countered with two in the top of the fourth, with Billy Madigan singling home a run and the tying run scoring on a passed ball. Lavin took the ball with two out and the bases loaded and snuffed out the threat with the first of his six strikeouts.

Toms River East regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth when James Whalen walked, moved to second base on a sacrifice bunt by Dan Nafziger, stole third base and scored on a wild pitch.

The Raiders move on as the No. 1 seed and will take on No. 3 Jackson Memorial Friday at Central Regional's Al Leiter Ballpark at 4 p.m. The two teams will also play Class A South divisional games on Tuesday and Thursday leading up to the showdown in the OCT championship game.

Marlboro 5, CBA 3

Paul Santos sparked a first-inning rally with a leadoff single and stolen base, then delivered a two-run single in the second to back winning pitcher Sujay Sesha in a Mustangs win over the top-ranked Colts.

Santos scored from second on a throwing error on a third strike in the dirt to open the scoring. Nick Diadema capped the Marlboro scoring with an RBI single to make it 5-1 in the top of the second.

Kyle Welsh kept CBA within striking distance with four innings of scoreless relief, but Sesha silenced the CBA bats after giving up a second run in the bottom of the second. Will Fahey singled home a run to make it 5-2 and Jaxon Sevilla attempted to score from second on the hit, but Mustangs leftfielder Chris Joy cut down the run at the plate with a relay throw into the infield.

Trailing, 5-2, heading in the bottom of the seventh, CBA started a last-ditch rally with a single by Jayden Matejicka, at which point Marlboro turned to Mason Alexander on the mound. CBA loaded the bases with one out and Alexander coaxed a shallow flyout to centerfield for the second out.

Dan Russo drew a walk to cut the CBA deficit to 5-3 and move the tying run into scoring position but Alexander reached back for a game-ending strikeout.

Freehold Twp. 7, Middletown North 3

Mike Avino and C.J. Svoboda each drove in two runs during multi-hit performances and sophomore Cameron Chiapuzio picked up his first varsity win as the Patriots (3-10, 2-9) cooled off the Lions (4-8, 2-8). Avino went 3-for-4 with a double while Svoboda was 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and two stolen bases.

Chiapuzio pitched 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief, backing up 4 2/3 innings from starter Matt Nuccio. The Freehold Township duo on the mound withstood an 11-hit attack by Middletown North that included four players with two hits. Alipio Figueroa and Gabe Ahlemeyer each went 2-for-4, with a Figueroa clocking a solo home run and Ahlemeyer adding a triple and a run scored. Jason Quardt was also 2-for-3 and Dylan Briggs went 2-for-5.

Class A Central

Red Bank Catholic 6, Holmdel 0

Declan Leary lost a no-hit bid with one out in the top of the seventh inning and still faced the minimum 21 batters in a one-hit shutout win for the Caseys of the Hornets.

A dropped pop-up in the third inning spoiled a potential perfect-game bid but Leary erased the base-runner by inducing an inning-ending double-play. In the top of the seventh, Holmdel catcher Matt Iulo broke up the no-hitter with a one-out single before Leary again coaxed a double-play -- this time to end the game with a 65-pitch gem.

RBC gave Leary all the offense he needed with three runs in the bottom of the third. Freshman Luke Lonczak singled home RBC's first run and Passo picked up the first of his three RBI with an RBI groundout. Passo scored another run with a groundout in the fourth inning and singled one in during the sixth.

Manasquan 3, Neptune 2 (8 Innings)

R.T. Runge singled home Connor Voelkson with the winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning and the Warriors walked off with a win over the Scarlet Fliers.

J.D. Teza gave Manasquan the lead in the bottom of the fifth with a pinch-hit RBI triple and scored on a bunt by Matt Antonucci.

Neptune tied the game in the top of the sixth thanks to some daring base-running by Carl Christie, who doubled, stole third and scored the Scarlet Fliers' first run when the throw to third went into leftfield. Manasquan starter Austin Griffith then issued two straight walks and reliever Chase Kaplan came on and walked another to load the bases, setting up a wild pitch that scored Jack Gamba-Ellis with the tying run.

An error leading off the bottom of the eighth set up the winning rally and Dylan Vowteras moved Voelkson allong with a single to centerfield, setting up Runge's winning hit into rightfield.

Ocean 4, Red Bank 3

Connor Tongring and Bodhi Lettieri each homered in the bottom of the first inning and the Spartans held on to beat the Bucs.

Tongring crushed a two-run homer to open the scoring and Lettieri unloaded for a solo shot with two out to make it 3-0.

Brian Stevens took over for starter Tommy Kowaliwskyj in the top of the sixth and escaped the Red Bank threat with the lead intact, 4-3. Ben Robinson then struck out the side in order in the top of the seventh to secure his third save of the season.

Ranney 7, Matawan 6

Ryan Costello homered in each of his first two at-bats to extend his Shore-Conference-leading total to 10, then pitched three innings of middle-relief for the Panthers as they held on to hand the Huskies their first loss of the season while keeping their hopes of a Class B North championship alive.

Matawan arrived at Ranney's campus looking for a win that would have clinched the program its first division championship since winning a B North co-title in 2011 and first outright championship since 1972. The Huskies got off on the right foot by advancing runners to second and third with none out in the first inning and cashing in with an RBI groundout by Andrew Gendi and a two-out RBI double by Sal Cassano.

Costello answered in the bottom of the first with a tracer over the fencer in right-centerfield, good for a game-tying two-run home run after Andrew Parisi led off the Ranney first with a single to center.

Gendi put Matawan back on top with a solo home run in the top of the third and in the bottom of the inning, Costello again responded with a solo shot -- this time a towering fly ball well beyond the fence down the rightfield line for his 10th home run of the season.

Ranney grabbed the lead later in the third inning on an RBI groundout by Robbie Wrobel and went up 6-3 in the bottom of the fifth on back-to-back walks with the bases loaded. Curt Chropuvka added what proved to be the winning run on a solo homer to left-center to make it 7-3.

Matawan kept fighting and slugged its way back into the game with back-to-back solo homers by Cassano and Sean Hart with one out. Colin McGeehan followed with a single to right field that chased Costello from the mound after he settled the game down in the middle innings and pitched three frames.

The Huskies waited out three walks by freshman Nate Fuller, the last of which forced home a run to make it 7-6 with two out. Fuller, however, induced a game-ending groundout to third baseman Andrew Parisi, who stepped on the third-base bag to end the game.

Matawan can still win the Class B North championship outright with a win over Ranney Wednesday in Matawan with Gendi, its 4-0 senior ace, set to take the mound.

Manchester 6, Lacey 4

Pat McKay, Justin Uriarte and Anthony Carino contributed run-scoring hits in Manchester's six-run fourth inning and the Hawks held on to beat the Lions for their fifth win in six games after starting 0-5.

McKay made it 3-0 with a two-run single and Uriarte stretched the lead to 5-0 with a two-run double. Carino capped the rally with an RBI single -- enough cushion for starter Damien Crispin to earn the win by pitching into the seventh inning.
