The Huskies defeat Sayreville by a score of 3-2. It was baseball the way the game was meant to be played – throw strikes and play defense and that’s just what the Huskies did. Chris Gendi and Danny Hirujo pitched innings one and 2 – and Freshman Timmy Egan took over from there throwing 5 dominant innings striking out 6 and walking 2 to earn his second victory of the year. Egan also had 2 hits to help his cause. Derek Jordan had a hit as did Richie Olsen, Jay Kalieta and Ryan Anderson.
