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.
