With Red Bank trailing 10-6 in the bottom of the third, Del Pra and Glauber tied the game on back-to-back at-bats. Del Pra doubled home two to make it 10-8 and Glauber singled home two to tied the game at 10.

Junior Cole Armond went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI, sophomore Jackson Hyman was 2-for-2 with a double and two runs and Nate Ruth and James White each went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBI. Senior C.J. Paolino also doubled and finished 1-for-3.

Senior Jason Sparks (1-for-3) hit a game-tying double in the rally and junior John Spallin (1-for-4) gave Holmdel the lead with an RBI double. Junior Max Woodward (2-for-4, double, two runs, three RBI) capped the big inning with a two-run single.

Red Bank came back with five in the bottom of the inning, with the Bucs taking the lead on an error before adding five more in the bottom of the third to extend the lead to 16-10.

Sophomore Reece Moroney keyed three separate Rumson rallies and the Bulldogs pieced together a road win over the Golden Eagles - their third straight to open the season.

Moroney doubled and scored on a wild pitch in the top of the first inning, hit a game-tying RBI single in the top of the fourth to even the score at 3-3, and added an RBI single in a three-run sixth inning that put the game away for Rumson.

Senior Hank Hyduke singled home a run just ahead of Moroney's game-tying single in the fourth and sophomore Owen Kenney later gave Rumson the lead for good with an RBI groundout in the top of the fifth. Junior Matt Rigby picked up a two-run single in Central's three-run sixth.

Central junior starter Ryan Burke helped his cause with a two-run home run during the bottom of the second, giving Rumson bulk pitching Charlie Jones a rude welcome.

No. 3 Red Bank Catholic 6, Delbarton 0

Shane Panzini was dominant for the second time in the season's first week, taking a no-hitter into the sixth and silencing one of the perennial powers of North Jersey in a Caseys win.

Panzini walked two in the bottom of the third, then did not allow another baserunner until Delbarton shortstop Connor Dreyer fought off a 0-2 pitch with a soft line drive that fell just to the right of second base. Red Bank Catholic junior second baseman Nico Gonzalez was not able to handle the awkward hop, but the ball hung in the air long enough that Dreyer was highly likely to beat it out anyway.

Panzini responded to the hit by striking out the final four batters of the game, capping it with a 93-mile-per-hour fastball to record his 15th and final strikeout.

In two starts during the first week of the season, Panzini has struck out 29, walked four and allowed three hits in 14 scoreless innings against Toms River North and now Delbarton. All three hits were singles and two of them did not leave the infield.

Panzini also cracked an RBI double in the top of the first inning, while senior Anthony Borriello and junior Matt Scrivanic each had a sacrifice fly and an RBI single in the win.

No. 1 Jackson Memorial 11, Randolph 0 (6 Innings)

Senior shortstop Ty Beck hit a grand slam in the fifth and a game-ending two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth as the Jaguars went off for eight runs in the last two innings to pull away from the Rams.

Beck's walk-off two-run shot was part of an eventful final inning for Jackson Memorial. Sophomore Dan Beldowicz ripped a line drive to right field that was misplayed into a triple and he scored when the throw toward third got away.

On the next batter, junior and No. 9 hitter Andrew Patire capped a perfect night at the plate with a solo home run to make it 9-0. Senior catcher Zach Rogacki singled to reach base for the third time and moved to second on a wild pitch. Beck could have ended the game with a single but instead drove a 2-2 pitch over the leftfield fence.

Beck had not homered in a varsity game prior to his fifth-inning grand slam and will take his next at-bat having hit homers in two consecutive at-bats.

The offensive explosion made a complete-game winner of junior left-hander Zach Crotchfelt, who reached the mid-90's with his fastball and allowed just two walks, a hit batter and an infield single on a Baltimore Chop off home plate in the second inning. The Auburn commit finished his six-inning complete game by striking out the side in both the fifth and the sixth, including five consecutive punchouts to end the game.

Middletown South 4, Ramapo 0

Sophomore Ben Schild pitched a two-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts and one walk in his first career outing and the Eagles (4-0) blanked the Raiders (2-2) for their fourth straight win to open the season.

Schild took a no-hitter into the fifth inning after striking out the side in the fourth inning.

Senior Matt Pontari went 2-for-3 with two doubles, one of which led off a three-run second inning for Middletown South. Senior Patrick Eagone (1-for-3) ripped a two-run double to make it 3-0 and Schild later drew a bases-loaded walk in the third to force home senior Joe Stanzione (2-for-3), who led the inning off with a double.
