(3) Colts Neck 6, (7) Middletown South 5 (11 Innings)

Jordan Gonzalez hammered a two-out, game-winning single to the warning track in left field to score Tyler Kapuscinski from third and give the Cougars a wild win over the Eagles to advance to Wednesday’s Monmouth County Tournament final against No. 8 CBA.

Kapuscinski started the winning rally with a two-out triple on a line drive that split the right-center gap and rolled to the wall. Middletown South elected to walk the next two batters – the second after Gianni Magliaro went to second on defensive indifference – and with a 2-and-2 count against Eagles reliever Kyle Brey, Gonzalez turned on an elevated fastball and got it just over the diving reach of left fielder Joe Timmins.

Timmins nearly gave the Eagles the lead in the top of the 11th, but Colts Neck center fielder Mike Antico made a diving catch while running back in the left-center gap for the second out of the inning, forcing Nolan Pereless to retreat back to second base.

Middletown South tied the game with five runs in the top of the seventh inning, most of it against Colts Neck’s stellar bullpen. The first run came home on a balk, the next scored on a single by Paul Mariniello and the third on a hit-by-pitch. The next two scored on wild pitches and a sixth nearly scored on another wild pitch in the eighth, but reliever Robbie Warendorf tagged out Zach deRocco at the plate for the final out of the inning. Middletown South coach Ryan Spillane was ejected for arguing the call.

Magliaro struck out nine and walked four in six-plus innings of work, allowing only one hit. He surrendered a leadoff single to Pereless to start the sixth, ending the no-hit bid.
