"He did a great job," Ridge Pitching Coach Hedgecock said about Rica. "He was keeping ahead all day and was very efficient with strikes. He had their guys off balance and kept the pitch count low which was great."

The other home run for Ridge was hit by right fielder Bobby Moskow. 

Ridge returns home for Wednesday and Thursday to play Pingry and Bridgewater, respectively. Ridge home games are played at the varsity field at Ridge High School, 268 S. Finley Ave. in Basking Ridge.
