Nick Garbooshian went the distance on the mound for his fifth win of the season and also smacked a two-run double in his team's five-run fourth inning to lead the Mustangs over the Green Dragons, completing the regular-season sweep of their crosstown rivals.

Brick chipped away at a 6-0 Brick Memorial lead and pulled within 6-5 on a solo home run by Peyton Horning in the bottom of the sixth inning. Garbooshian navigated through the remainder of the sixth and fired a one-two-three seventh inning to close out the win on 109 pitches.

No. 1 Southern 5, Toms River North 0

Brady Lesiak, Gabe Tomei and Logan Zeitler rattled off consecutive run-scoring hits in a breakthrough fifth inning for the Rams, who used three pitchers to blank the Mariners and move within one win of clinching no worse than a share of the Class A South championship.

Lesiak broke the scoreless tie with a two-run double to score Ray Mulhern and Mike Kaczynski, who led off the fifth with back-to-back singles. Tomei then smashed an RBI triple and Zeitler followed with an RBI single, as well as his third hit of the game, for a 4-0 Southern lead.

Tomei added a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the sixth to cap the scoring.

Lesiak recorded the first 10 outs of the game, followed by 3 1/3 no-hit innings by Tyler McLeod to pick up the win.
