Game 1 - Cardinal 4 - Red Birds 3

Despite having just four hits, the Cardinal picked up the win behind five errors by the Red Birds. Both teams starting pitching was excellent, keeping it a low scoring game through most of the contest. Mike Dolce (Farmingdale) of the Cardinals picked up the win after tossing five innings, allowing just one run and three hits, while striking out six. Although the Cardinals did not get up many hits, Matt Caposio (Felician) had a big single in the sixth inning that drove in two, giving the Cardinals a lead that they never gave back. Anthony Eichorn (Molloy) pitched six dominant innings, giving up just one earned run while striking out ten, but it was not enough to earn him a victory.

Winning Pitcher - Cardinals - Mike Dolce (2-0)
Losing Pitcher - Red Birds - Anthony Eichorn (1-1)
Save - Cardinals - Matt Domina (1)
