Adrenaline Shore Conference Baseball Wednesday Scoreboard, 4/6/22
Class A Central
Monmouth 2, No. 1 Red Bank Catholic 0 (9 Innings)
Senior Aiden Denton pitched seven shutout innings and delivered the go-ahead two-run single in the top of the ninth inning as the Falcons overcame eight hitless innings to rally for a nine-inning win over the Caseys.
Red Bank Catholic junior Alex Stanyek and sophomore Declan Leary combined to no-hit Monmouth through eight innings, but Denton matched zeroes with the two RBC right-handers. In the bottom of the seventh, Denton issued a one-out walk to freshman Dylan Passo, who moved into scoring position on a groundout by sophomore Matt Brunner.
At 109 pitches, Denton was eligible to pitch just one more batter and he struck out the leadoff hitter, Stanyek, on three straight fastballs to send the game to the eighth inning.
In the top of the ninth, senior Andrew McKinley started the winning rally by reaching on an error and one batter later, senior Christian Zito ripped a ground ball over the third-base bag for a double -- the first hit of the game for the Falcons -- and a second-and-third threat with none out.
Denton worked the count full and smacked a one-hopper that RBC second baseman Andrew Gonzalez deflected as he was sliding to make an attempt to field the ball. The ball bounded into centerfield and both McKinley and Zito sped home with the tiebreaking runs.
Senior Zach Lopes nailed down the win with a one-two-three ninth inning.
Red Bank Catholic's best late-game threat came in the bottom of the eighth. Lopes issued a leadoff walk to junior Frank Scrivanic, but bounced back to retire the Nos. 3 and 4 hitters -- Monmouth commit Matt Scrivanic and sophomore Alabama commit Sean Griggs. With a runner on second, Monmouth intentionally walked junior catcher Shane Andrus and senior Jack Meyers worked another walk to load the bases with two out. Lopes then got Gonzalez to fly out to Zito in center to strand the bases loaded.

No. 2 Rumson-Fair Haven 7, St. Rose 2
Senior right-hander and Wake Forest commit Charlie Jones debuted with five one-hit innings and the Bulldogs offense gave him plenty of breathing room in a win over the Purple Roses -- their third straight victory to open the season.

Class B North
Neptune 3, Freehold Boro 0
Senior Tyler Persico jumpstarted the Scarlet Fliers with a two-run single in the bottom of the first and that was all classmate Ryan Cole would need to shut down the Colonials with a 12-strikeout, two-hit gem.
Persico also added a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth to give Cole some breathing room.
