Baseball: Bears Bounce Back with Win Over Edison, 10-2


EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Coming off of a 10-4 loss to Old Bridge, the Bears hosted the Edison Eagles. The Bears defeated the Eagles 10-2. Edison put up one run in the first inning but the Bears answered back quickly. East Brunswick put up at least one run every inning after the first inning resulting in a 10-2 victory.

Sophomore Joe Petrocelli got the start on the bump for EB and he totaled five strikeouts and only allowed one earned run. Senior Evan Dekhayser and Junior James Schuld pitched a combined two innings without allowing a run.

The Bears did not score in the bottom half of the inning but in the second inning EB quickly had runners in scoring position. With runners on first and third Senior Jay Marchese hit a double into left field to take a 2-1 lead. A few batters later Senior Nick Martino had an RBI single to extend their lead to 3-1.
