Brick Memorial 13, Southern 8

Senior Anthony Martino blasted a tiebreaking, three-run home run in the top of the fifth for his Shore-leading third homer of the season and the Mustangs erased an early five-run deficit to beat the Rams for their fourth straight win.

Martino also ignited the rally with a single in the top of the third and came around to score on a two-run single by junior Declan Sheehan, who later scored on a wild pitch to cut the Southern lead to 5-3.

Junior Brady Leach picked up an RBI single in the top of the fourth for one of his three hits and senior Ryan Turner tied the game at 6 in the fifth with an RBI double, which preceded Martino's blast.

Senior Jack Flood tacked on a pair of insurance runs with a two-run single that capped a three-run seventh by Brick Memorial.

Southern senior starter Stephen Stafford was a big part of the fast start for the Rams on offense, plating a run with a sacrifice fly during a four-run first and launching a solo home run in the bottom of the second.

Class B North

Matawan 3, Red Bank 1

Matawan senior right-hander Jake Brigandi helped his cause with a pair of doubles -- including one to chase home a run in the top of the fifth -- and the Huskies turned in another strong collective pitching performance, this time to fend off the Bucs.

Sophomore Tommy Ruth staked Red Bank to a 1-0 lead with an RBI double in the bottom of the first, but Matawan came right back with a run in the top of the second on an RBI single by sophomore Sal Cassano.

Sophomore Mike DiPietro gave Matawan a 2-1 lead with an RBI double in the third and Brigandi gave himself some insurance with his RBI double two innings later.

Sophomore Mark Kovach came on and struck out five of the six batters he faced for two perfect innings and his second save of the season.

Barnegat 4, Point Boro 1

Two crucial errors by Point Boro opened the door for Barnegat in the top of the seventh and seniors Jared Schworn and P.J. Craig kicked it in with two-out, two-run hits as the Bengals rallied past the Panthers to move into sole possession of first place in the Class B South standings.

With two out, Schworn roped a two-run single to give Barnegat the lead and Craig -- who also picked up the win in relief -- followed with a two-run homer to cap the rally.
