SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Starting pitcher Mike Farr threw a complete game shutout and helped his own cause by hitting a double and scoring twice as St. Joseph (Metuchen) defeated Scotch Plains-Fanwood, 9-0.

Farr, a senior, yielded just four singles and struck out 9 Raider batters in a dominating performance.

"He (Farr) was very aggressive and did a great job," said Raiders head coach Joe Higgins.  "He had an over the top downward angle on his fastball, and his curve was sharp. We couldn't touch it."
