A clean Slate, and other items

Add CBA junior Kyle Slate to the stable of arms coach Marty Kenney appears to have in his stable for the stretch run. After suffering a dislocated knee which shelved him for a while this season the right-hander, now 3-0, hurled six strong innings and struck out 10 Sunday night as CBA, No. 1 in the Press Top 10, downed Hudson Catholic (13-5) in the Shore Challenge, 5-1.
Ace pitcher Jordan Warncke pitched a scoreless final inning.

The Monmouth County Tournament has eeked into the quarterfinal round, for the most part. But after talking with Colts Neck coach Mike Yorke Sunday night, the first round game between the Cougars and Raritan won't be until May 16. According to Shore Conference rules County Tournament games rate somewhere behind Chinese Checkers, they are dead last in the pecking order with even nondivisional games having priority.

Yorke, by the way, was the man behind the Shore coaches proposal we wrote about Saturday for having two game divisional series replacing the staggered schedule of divisional games. I sort of liked it and would like to see it tried for a year.
Any thoughts on the subject out there in Blog Ville??

Congrats to Brookdale for winning Region 19. The Jersey Blues host the Districts this weekend with the winner advancing to the National Division II Junior College Tournament.

Toms River East grad Joe Cummings helped Monmouth U. halt a brief slide Sunday and hold onto first place in the Northeast Conference with a 5-0, compete game shutout of Quinnipiac. Joe's six wins (6-2) are a career single season high
