EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - A late offensive spark led to another mercy rule victory for the East Brunswick Bears. EB only surrendered three runs in a 13-3 victory over Northern Burlington, where the Bears tallied 14 combined hits.

For the Bears, Senior Scott Dessel pitched the first four innings only surrendering two earned runs, while striking out one batter. Senior James Schuld relieved Dessel for the fifth inning where he only made quick work of the Greyhounds as he sat down three straight batters.

East Brunswick took a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning as a result of an error, a walk and couple of hits. The Greyhounds were held scoreless until the fourth inning where they tied up the game 3-3. However, EB quickly retook the lead with a huge fourth inning. With two outs, Mike Sutton and James Schuld hit back-to-back doubles to bring in two runs, taking a 5-3 lead. A few batters later, Senior Mike Falco hit a fly ball over the right field fence to jump out to an 8-3 lead. A 7-run inning allowed the Bears to possess a comfortable 10-3 lead entering the fifth inning.

To lead off the bottom of the fifth inning, Senior David Bermudez hit a single. A few batters later the Bears had runners on first and second base. Senior Brandon Rosenthal came up to the plate, and took the first pitch he saw over the right field fence for three-run home run. This home run allowed the Bears to have a 10-run lead, which brought the mercy rule into play.
