LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston baseball team's historic season came to an end on Thursday with a 10-1 loss to Randolph in the quarterfinal round of the NJSIAA Section 1, Group 4 state tournament.

Randolph (10-8) led by just a 1-0 score after four innings before breaking it open in the final three innings. Livingston (18-4) trailed, 10-0, going to the bottom of the seventh, when the Lancers scored their only run.

Chris Myers' RBI double in the final frame scored Brett Mendez with the only Livingston run after Mendez had singled. Livingston finished with just four hits. The other two came from Chris Senney.

Senney was the starting pitcher. He threw four strong innings before Randolph nicked him for three runs in the fifth. Senney threw 103 pitches in his five innings on the mound, gave up five hits and three walks and struck out four. He allowed three earned runs. Coming into the game, Senney (5-2, 0.98 ERA) had allowed just three earned runs all season. He also has a .484 batting average to lead the team in that department.

Although the Lancers fell short of their goal in the state tournament, they are still the champs of Essex County after their 8-3 victory over Nutley in the final round of the Greater Newark Tournament last weekend. It is Livingston's first county title in nine years.

Livingston's season is not over. Three Super Essex Conference game remain, including a game Friday at Montclair.
