Norman Montenegro pitched five solid innings for the Warriors, allowing one run and three hits, with seven strikeouts and no walks to keep the game close. 

Yonati Sanchez provided strong relief pitching for two innings giving up no hits, striking out six, and no walks to earn the save. 

"We have preached to our pitchers all year to attack hitters and limit the free passes," Zucchero said. "Yonati came in to close the door behind him with two great innings."

Bryan Smith was the only Warrior with multiple hits, he went 2 for 3 and kept the game alive in the sixth.  

"Byran did a great job in the 6th with 2 outs to put the ball in play with two strikes to make something happen," Zucchero said. 

Joenelly Grullon scored in the sixth to give the Warriors the lead.  

The Warriors will play their final game of the season against North Hunterdon today at 3:45 p.m. at home.
