Baseball: Livingston Falls to 4-5 Record with 2-0 Loss to Summit

LIVINGSTON, NJ  — Despite an impressive performance on the mound by Livingston junior Tommy Kelly, two runs in the fourth inning led the Summit baseball team to 2-0 victory over the Lancers in a Livingston home game at the Memorial Oval on Thursday.

Despite the two earned runs on the Summit side, Kelly struck out three and only walked one during his six-hitter performance on the mound. Livingston’s three hits came from Kelly, Austin Miles and Tommy Falus.  

“Our pitching staff has given up only six earned runs in the last five games,” said head coach Mickey Ennis. “Obviously the offense has struggled at times and that is something we need to fight through. Strong pitching and steady defense will give us a shot to win any game moving forward.”

The defeat comes after two-consecutive victories over tough opponents in Nutley and Newark Academy. In addition to some recent victories, sophomore pitcher MJ DePaola was also named Athlete of the Week for pitching the first no-hitter in 31 years. (See story HERE.)

Now 4-5 on the season, the Lancers will continue to take on tough opponents on their home field this weekend with upcoming games against Seton Hall Prep (8-2) on Friday and Paterson-Eastside (6-2) on Saturday.
