It's far from over (in Class B North)

Sorry for the delay in posting....

Class B North race is very much still up for grabs between Wall, Monmouth, Colts Neck, and Freehold as of this writing. Wall still has two games with Colts Neck looming and must play Monmouth Regional a second time.

How many Gerans are there playing Shore Conference baseball? I count one at TR North, one at RBC, one at Matawan. Any more? And there are the two LaCavas, at Freehold Twp. and Toms River North. No relations that I am aware of (which doesn't mean there aren't!).

Ocean at CBA, postponed from Saturday, has been moved to this Friday at 345 p.m.

Looks like there will be no conflicts between the Shore Challenge and the Ocean County Tournament making for tons of baseball games this Saturday.

It's been a long season for Middletown South but the Eagles enjoyed their first two home run game of the year Tuesday night in the Monmouth County Tournament vs. Shore. They advance to play Freehold Township.

Speaking of Township - in his last two games Patriots ace Brett Brach has allowed five hits and struck out 21 in 5-0 and 2-1 wins over CBA and Marlboro.

Tony...Love your blogs and glad to see you at the Holmdel game last Saturday where you witnessed a barrage of hitting in a 17-7 pounding at the hands of SJV which has quietly put together a 10 out of 11 winning streak after starting the season at 2W and 4L, to put pressure on division rival RBC. All this including a mercy against Raritan 10-0, sweeping Manasquan in a double header and punishing Freehold Twsp. 11-3 during that streak. Your witnessing a team which was 5-17 last year and has finally hit it's stride with a loaded roster of talented baseball players - two of which are leaders in the shore in Home Runs (Kevin Ruffler and Nick Scarillo with 4 each), a balanced pitching staff of very good arms (no Kalish's, Gaynor's or Wywra's here) who continue to put up quality innings led by Paul Baccigalupe 3-0, Steven Fernicola 3-1, Nick Natoli 2-1 and Joe Melchionne 1-2 (beat Freehold Twsp) anchored by closer Kevin Ruffler 5 Saves and 1 Win. Let's not forget the rest of the loaded offense which is averaging over 6 runs a game led by .350+ hitters and speadsters like Chris Lewnes, Gary Fare, Mike Urciola, Sean McTeague and Andrew Archer along with Ruffler and Scarillo.

Nice work on the Blog. You Keep writing and we'll keep reading!
