Morristown Baseball Team Edges Chatham, 2-0

MORRISTOWN, NJ - With fine pitching on both sides, runs came at a premium during Wednesday’s Morristown-Chatham NJAC-United baseball game at Harter Road.
But at the end of the day, a clutch single by Morristown’s Jamie Wendell proved to be the difference.
In the bottom of the fourth, Wendell drove home Chase Champi and Sami Cazimoski. That would be it for the scoring in this one, as Morristown walked away with a 2-0 victory to win its fourth straight game to open the campaign.
On the mound, Brennan O’Neill of Morristown nearly went the distance, scattering four hits over six innings of work to go 2-0 on the season. Matt Mahoney pitched a scoreless seventh inning to record a save for the Colonials.
Chatham’s inability to get any runs across home plate unfortunately wasted an excellent pitching performance from Jack Hale, a senior who only surrendered the two runs as part of a complete game effort. Hale was able to induce a pair of double play balls off of Colonial bats in the first and third innings.
"We are playing good baseball right now," said MHS coach, Ed Collins. "Just want to keep it going. Base running will be where we need to improve the most".
Both teams are in action Thursday. The Cougars are now 1-4 on the season, and will host Mountain Lakes, while Morristown will host Jefferson. The latter game will have a large bearing on next Tuesday’s Morris County Tournament seeding meeting.

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
