Kingsway 3, No. 1 Jackson Memorial 2

Junior left-hander Zach Crotchfelt took a no-hitter into the sixth, but the Jaguars and Dragons could not break through until the ninth inning, when Kingsway (7-1) got just enough offense to turn away the Jackson Memorial (5-2).

Colin Gill broke the scoreless deadlock with his ninth-inning RBI single and John Rorick followed with a two-run single that proved to be the difference.

Senior shortstop Ty Beck drew Jackson Memorial to within a run with a two-run home run - his Shore-Conference-leading fourth homer of the season.

Senior right-hander and University of North Carolina commit Justin Szestowicki pitched seven shutout innings with 13 strikeouts, two walks and one hit allowed to outlast Crotchfelt, who was dominant in his second straight outing to open the season. Jackson Memorial's southpaw and Auburn commit struck out 10 and walked two while allowing just two hits in six innings, with both hits coming in his final inning of work.

No. 2 Red Bank Catholic 7, Wall 4

Junior Matt Scrivanic hit a game-tying two-run single to spark a six-run third for RBC and the Caseys backed up starter Shane Panzini to beat the Crimson Knights.

Wall grabbed an early 1-0 lead on the University of Virginia commit with first inning singles by senior Jay Bant, senior Max Harrell and junior Nick Lovarco - the latter of whom drove in the first run. Sophomore shortstop Gabe Cavazzoni made it 2-0 in the top of the third on a two-out RBI triple to right-center on a 0-2 offering from Panzini.

Five of Wall's seven hits against Panzini came on two-strike counts.

Panzini helped his own cause with a go-ahead RBI double in the bottom of the third. Sophomore Alex Stanyek - who pitched the seventh to close out the win - added a run on a sacrifice fly and freshman Sean Griggs followed with an RBI double that one-hopped the fence in right field. Junior Nico Gonzalez capped the rally with an RBI single.
