MILLBURN, NJ - The Millers Junior Varsity Baseball Team went undefeated in regular season games this season. 

In their exciting opener against Bloomfield  (away on April 2) they maintained a 5-5 tie in 9 innings of play.  Max Winstanley, the closing pitcher, got out of a pinch, when Bloomfield had bases loaded and no outs by striking out the final batter of the game after enabling shortstop, Ryan Adelman, to turn a double play.  Brian Lannino started the game pitching four innings, allowing no earned runs and striking out five batters.  Singles by Max Nesser, Jordan Brisgel and Michael Garawitz; a double by Adelman; and a triple by Garawitz led to the 5 runs being scored.

The JV also had two big wins over Seton Hall Prep this season, beating them on the road 7-5 on a cold and rainy day in April and then again at home in a huge come-back victory of 9-8.
