SADDLE BROOK, NJ - Michael Sarlo doubled and tripled and drove in five runs as Wood-Ridge defeated Saddle Brook, 14-8 in a wild NJIC Meadowlands baseball game on Wednesday afternoon in Saddle Brook.  The Blue Devils jumped out to a 9-0 lead, only to see Saddle Brook fight their way back into the game with a six run third inning.

Sarlo hit a two-run triple in the first innning to give the Blue Devils a 5-0 lead.  His hit drove in Jake Colon and Anthony D'Amico, both whom had driven in runs earlier in the inning. The Blue Devils appeared to turn the game into a cake-walk, adding one in second three in the third, for a comfortable 9-0 lead.

The Falcons had other ideas, scoring six in the bottom of the third, including three on Max Cue's three run home run, cutting the lead to 9-6 off Wood-Ridge starter Liam Winslow.  Winslow was able to shut the Falcons back down, adding in a perfect fourth, to go to the fifth with a 9-6 lead.
