Rumson-Fair Haven 7 Red Bank Regional 6
Trailing 6-1 and down to their final three outs, RFH staged an amazing comeback with a six run seventh inning to beat their Ridge Road neighbors. Matt Fahey started the rally with a double off the wall in deep left field. From there, Christian Lanzalotto drove home two with a base hit up the middle to make it a 6-4 game. The Bulldogs loaded the bases setting up the heroics of Alec Walsack. With two outs, the RFH second baseman hit a liner that went past the diving centerfielder allowing all three runs to score. The Bulldogs sealed the victory with the tying run on second base thanks to a 5-3-6 double play. Watch all the great late inning drama from Little Silver in our US Army Game of the Week:
