Burlington posts RVL victory
Paul Guerrieri was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning, forcing in the winning run as the Burlington Mets edged the Burlington Township Pirates 4-3.
Zach Youngberg reached on a misplay of his infield pop to start the winning rally. After Casey Donahuge singled and Dan Hennigan walked, pitcher Tyler Diaz got Sean Gusrang, who had drilled a long three-run home run earlier, to ground into a force at the plate. But the next pitch plunked Guerrieri.
The much-improved Pirates, who won only one of their 31 games last year, came into the game with a 2-0 record and jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first. Adam Quaranta led off with a home run off John Harvey and two more runs scored on an overthrow at third base.
Harvey and Youngberg threw blanks for the final six-plus innings. Diaz pitched a complete game.
