Verona Barnstormers 9U best North Caldwell in Summer Championship, 10-9 in 9 innings

Cole McClain pitched out of a bases loaded jam in the top of the ninth inning and then followed the bottom half with a game-tying double.  After North Caldwell intentionally walked Michael Swanstrom, Michael Lipari fouled off several pitches to work a hard earned walk to load the bases.  With two outs, Anthony Lewis then worked a bases loaded walk to force home the winning run Friday night in the 9U Summer Championship game against North Caldwell.

The two teams totaled 30 hits between them, including five for extra bases.  The game battled back and forth heading into the ninth with 10 lead changes.

Cole racked up three RBIs on four hits for Verona Barnstormers 9U. He singled in the first, third, and fourth innings and doubled in the ninth inning

Verona Barnstormers 9U jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Zachary Garmont singled to ignite Verona Barnstormers 9U's offense followed by a stolen base and double by Luigi Pantano to score Garmont. Verona Barnstormers 9U pushed more runs across when Pantano scored on an RBI single by Julian Santorelli, and Ryan Radigan scored on an RBI single by Cole, and Santorelli scored on an RBI double by Andrew Eremita. 

Verona Barnstormers 9U matched its one-run second inning with one more in the third. In the second, Verona Barnstormers 9U scored on an RBI double by Ryan Radigan, scoring Luigi.

The game featured several stellar plays on defense from both sides providing fans with one of the most exciting Barnstormer games ever played.
