FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - The Franklin Warriors played a tight game, but Bridgewater-Raritan rallied in the sixth with eight runs to pull out an 11-3 victory on Thursday. 

Warrior Norman Montenegro pitched five innings giving up five hits, striking out two, walking two, and gave up four runs, with only two of them being earned. 

"Senior pitcher Norman Montenegro threw the best game I have ever seen out of him," Head Coach Nicholas Zucchero said. "He was able to command all three pitches for strikes and he was successful."

Aj Gordon and Sohil Patel each drove in one run for the Warriors.

Garrett Callaghan went 1-for-3 with a triple and scored twice while Brian DiNicola was the only Warrior to get two hits going 2-for-4 with one run.

The Warrior bullpen came on with no outs in the sixth and gave up eight runs. 

"Our bullpen didn¹t have it today," Zucchero said. "We weren¹t able to command more than one pitch for strikes. Bridgewater is a very good hitting team and they capitalized on it."

With the loss, the Warriors fall to 0-7 and will play Gill St. Bernard's on the road this Saturday at 10 a.m. 

"This team never gives up and hasn¹t all year. Zucchero said. "Our record doesn¹t prove this team justice."
