Baseball: Livingston Defeats Nutley, 8-2, in First of Four Big Games


LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston High School baseball team brought its overall record up to 4-4 for the season on Wednesday with an 8-2 victory over Nutley—the first of four consecutive games against tough teams this week.

After a long wait, the team finally returned to its home field at the Memorial Oval on Monday, where junior pitcher Ryan Cardona led the Lancers to a 5-3 victory over Newark Academy. Striking out six and only walking one, head coach Mickey Ennis said Cardona pitched a tremendous game despite giving up a three-run home run in the fourth inning.

“It was great being home, it’s been a while,” said Ennis. “It was a good conference game for us. This SEC American is really a strong conference, so we’re always happy to get a conference win.”

Ennis said the team has now had several-consecutive games where the Lancers have played extremely strong defensively with tremendous pitchers, including Cardona, Logan Bushwell and MJ DePaola—who was named Livingston Athlete of the Week for pitching the first no-hitter in 31 years against Verona.

“It looks like things are coming together on the mound for us and defensively for us,” said Ennis. “We’re just looking for a little more consistently at the plate. We have a tough schedule ahead of us this week—we go Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, so that will be a good test for us moving forward.”

The Lancers will begin a string of home games on Thursday against Summit (7-3), followed by home games against Seton Hall Prep (7-2) on Friday and Paterson-Eastside (6-2) on Saturday. Ennis said all of these opponents currently have a handful of victories already under their belts and the Lancers are looking forward to the challenge.

In fact, it hasn’t been mentioned since the Season Five finale when Jon Snow reveals this discovery to Sam Tarly. Jon has cared about little more than the war between the living and ...
