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.
