BASKING RIDGE, NJ - It took a few extra innings to wrap up their win, but Ridge High School's varsity boys baseball beat North Hunterdon 2-1 in the tenth inning of Wednesday's game with a "walk-off" walk.
In the bottom of the tenth, Ridge had players on first base and third base when Liam McArthur came up to bat. The student teams routinely play seven innings.
North Hunterdon apparently made the decision to intentionally walk McArthur, who was number one in the batting line-up.
With the bases loaded, Peter Matarazzo came up to bat and North Hunterdon's pitcher walked him - leading to the final run that scored a victory for ridge.
Third basemen Grant Hellings who contributed to the win.
"The players' performance spoke for itself," Head Coach Tom Blackwell said after the game.
Ridge came onto the field facing a team with a strong record: North Hunterdon had come into the game with a 9-2 season record.
Ridge 's record now is now is 6-2-1. The Red Devils' next game is at 11 a.m. on Saturday at home at Ridge Varsity Baseball field against Moorestown.
