BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Gov. Livingston baseball team continued their early season dominance by beating their cross-town rival New Providence, 15-6, in the Highlander Classic final.  

Led by the bat of senior designated hitter Ethan Frohman, the Highlanders jumped out to an 11-1 lead and never looked back, extending their winning streak to six games.

"Some of the kids had some really good at bats out there today," Highlanders head coach Chris Roof said. "I think we put a lot of pressure on them at the bases that forced them into making mistakes that we were able to capitalize on."

At the plate, Frohman led the Highlanders offensive production Ethan Frohman with a game-high five RBIs, to give him 11 on the year.

"I just try to be very aggressive when I am up at the plate," Frohman said.  "I try to get my pitch and see what happens."

Frohman was named Highlander Classic MVP for his performance in the tournament.

Overall, Gov. Livingston had eight players with at least one RBI in the game.  Four of those players had two or more runs batted in as well.

The New Providence offense though, unlike the Highlanders, was not as productive.  The Pioneers got off to a slow start offensively, not getting their first hit until the fourth inning. The bats did wake up for New Providence when they scored five runs in the fifth inning, but it was not nearly enough to get them back in the game.

"I like the way we battled back in this game," Pioneers coach Chris Brodeur said, "it definitely shows we got some heart on this team, but this games shows we have a lot of wrinkles to iron out through the course of this season."

With the win the Highlanders improved to 6-0, while New Providence drops to 3-3 for the year.
