BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Ridge baseball team remained undefeated with its fourth one-run victory in seven games this season when the Red Devils beat Voorhees in the bottom of the seventh inning, 5-4, at TD Bank Ballpark Saturday night.

Chris Seebode led off the bottom of the seventh with a double, then took third on a sacrifice bunt by Ryan Gogerty. Sean Spina followed with a sacrifice fly that scored Seebode to snap the 4-4 tie.

Spina also had an RBI single in the game, which Ridge (7-0) led, 4-2, before Voorhees (6-3) tied it with two runs in the sixth inning. Andrew Lusardi had two doubles and two RBI in the game, and Anthony Roti went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored.
