Frohman Dominates in Gov. Livingston Baseball's 1-0 Victory Over Westfield

April 9, 2014 at 11:15 PM

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ – Gov. Livingston head coach Chris Roof saw one of the top three pitching performances in his 13-year varsity career on Wednesday afternoon.

GL’s ace Ethan Frohman threw a complete game, three-hit shutout as the Highlanders defeated NJ.com's No. 7 team, Westfield, 1-0, at Gov. Livingston High School.

“In 14 years as a head coach, 11 here, it was probably one of the top three pitching performances I have ever seen, mainly because it was against such a high quality opponent,” Roof said. “Westfield is a Group 4 powerhouse year in and year out. He did an amazing job against this team today.”

Frohman scattered three hits across his seven innings of work, striking out eight and walking none in the process. 

“I’m definitely happy with it,” Frohman said. “The defense made some nice plays today, which gave me the confidence to really get the curveball over for a strike… Today was really about getting the curveball over for a strike. I was able to get a lot of swing and misses with the curveball.”

The Blue Devils never had more than one base runner on in any inning of the contest, however they were 90 feet away from tying the game in the top of the fifth.

Senior Chris Arena, who had two hits in the game, hit a lead-off double. However, following a missed bunt attempt, Arena was picked off trying to steal third which proved to be Frohman’s final challenge of the day.

While Frohman shined on the mound, the Blue Devils’ offense wasn’t the only one that struggled in the game. The Highlanders saw only four hitters reach base the entire game, thankfully for Frohman that was just enough to scratch out a run.

With two outs in the first, senior outfielder Ryan Jennings ripped a double then advanced to third on a wild pitch.  Junior Ian Lynch answered the call with an RBI single to give the Highlanders the game’s only run.

Frohman wasn’t concerned about the Highlanders’ lack of offensive production in the game, instead focusing his mind on paying his teammates back for their 16-run backing last week against Elizabeth.

“Today is the type of day where I have to pick them up,” Frohman said. “Last game I threw against Elizabeth they gave me all of the run support. It was my turn to pick them up today.”

Westfield’s offensive struggles continued with Frohman’s dominating performance. The Blue Devils have scored only 10 runs over their first three games of the season and played in their second straight 1-0 decision, previously defeating Union by the same score last Thursday.

“We just have to find a way to score some runs,” Westfield head coach Robert Brewster said. “That’s one of our things. We’ve been struggling a little bit to score runs. We got hitters, we just haven’t been putting things together.”

The Highlanders (4-0) continue their stretch on Thursday when they host Union, while the Blue Devils (2-1) get a visit from Elizabeth. Both games start at 4 p.m.
