Matawan 3 RBR 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.
