Red Birds 12 - Tribe 4
The Red Birds had an all-around solid performance, both on the mound and at the plate. The icing on the cake was a late rally. Matthew Seelinger (Farmingdale) tossed six strong innings, allowing just two earned runs. The Red Birds had several players with big days at the plate, including Joe Mendez (St. Joseph's) and Skyler Mercado (Florence Darlington). Mercado reached base four times, including three hits, and also drove in a runner. Joe Mendez had a monster day, driving in five runners, including a three-run homerun. Although the Tribe lost, Ricky Alessi (LIU Post) notched three hits, drove in a runner, stole a base, and played a solid defense game at shortstop.
