Class A North

No. 6 Middletown South 26, Long Branch 3 (5 Innings)

Senior Patrick Eagone was a perfect 5-for-5 with a double, triple, three runs scored and four RBI to lead an offensive outburst by the Eagles (7-3, 2-3) in a rout of the Green Wave (1-8, 0-5).

Sophomore Ben Schild also went 4-for-4 with two RBI, Mike Mirro was 3-for-4 with a triple and four RBI and Joe Bartos was 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBI. Junior Evan Wood (2-for-4, double) and senior Greg Trezza (2-for-5) each drove in three runs apiece as well for Middletown South.

No. 5 Manalapan 1, No. 3 Middletown North 0

Mazza battled through trouble throughout his 103-pitch outing, scattering nine Middletown North hits while walking four and striking out seven.

Dowlen, meanwhile, allowed one unearned run on five hits while striking out eight and needing only 75 pitches to complete his seven innings.

CBA 3, No. 4 Freehold Twp. 2 (14 Innings)

Senior Michael Natali smacked a double that dropped just inside the right-field line and out of the reach of Freehold Township right fielder Jon Olik, chasing home senior Jack Greenspan from first with the winning run to give the Colts a marathon win over the Patriots - the first loss of the season for Freehold Township.

CBA was one strike away from winning the game in the top of the seventh, but Freehold Township junior shortstop Ryan Keegan beat out and infield single to the right side and Olik steamrolled home from second base with the tying run on the play.

From there, both relief staffs mowed down the opposition, with senior Joe Marini and junior Jack Frankovic combining for nine innings with just one unearned run allowed and Freehold Township senior Patrick Burns tossing nearly a full game's worth of outs in relief of starter Zach Gorman.

CBA jumped out to a 2-0 lead on a two-our RBI double by Frankovic in the third inning and a solo home run by Marini in the bottom of the fourth.
