Colts seek arms, Reilly homers again for St. Rose

CBA coach Marty Kenney still wasn't sure Monday who would start for the No. 1 Colts (7-0) Thursday in the Class A North showdown with Freehold Township (5-2). He said if Jordan Warncke's arm is still too sore than Dave Laufer will get the nod. CBA has to play Manalapan Tuesday.

In action from games Monday where write ups did not make Tuesday's paper for lack of space....Keyport's Eric Devlin went 3-for-3 and scored three runs in its 17-3 win over Henry Hudson...A. J. Rusbarsky of Colts Neck had a two-run single in a five-run second inning and Mickey Shaw had three hits in the Class B North game as the Cougars (7-1) extended their school-best start by downing Long Branch, 8-1. Andrew Small and Devin Cousins each had two hits for Long Branch....Freehold raked 15 singles, three by Marc Hubbert, in a 12-5 win over Manalapan which has dropped four in a row....St. Rose senior James Reilly belted a grand slam in the first inning, his second HR in two games, to give the Purple Roses the lead as they cruised to their 20th Class B Central victory in a row and 13th straight win dating back to last year, 6-0.|

Also - ed Bank winning pitcher Tim Johnson lifted a seventh inning sacrifice fly that scored Chris Ridgeway with the winning run enabling the Bucs to edge Neptune, 4-3. Trailing 3-1 Red Bank scored single runs in the fifth and sixth innings on a Ridgeway infield hit and a Bill Kulovitz RBI single. Neptune has lost some tough games this year and has been very competitive. ...and in sunny Florida Wall's Ed Galante slugged a two-run double in the third inning and Sean Peterson a two-run triple in the fifth to lead the Knights past St. Joseph's (4-4) in Fort Pierce, Fla., 7-0. Senior right-hander Chad Tirpack pitched five innings and Peterson finished up the five-hit shutout. Shore teams are now 14-0 vs. non-conference opposition on the Florida excursion with Wall having one game left tonight.
