MADISON, NJ - Livingston knew expectations were high coming into the 2011 season. However, some midseason slumps and misfortunes earned them a poor Greater Newark Tournament seeding as well as a poor state seeding.  The Lancers turned it around as of late winning five in a row and on Friday in Madison they won their sixth straight game, 9-6, over the Dodgers.

“All season we said how much potential we had,” senior outfielder Brandon Levy said.  “We are harnessing that talent and it has showed in our last six games.”

Levy went 4-for-4 and drove in two runs for Livingston, as he was the catalyst for the Lancers' offense.

Livingston jumped out to an early 3-0 lead over the first two innings.  Both Levy and second baseman Connor Kimmel knocked in Livingston’s runs.

Madison fought right back in the bottom of the second inning and knocked in two runs.  Cameron Dias laced a two-single to centerfield off Livingston hurler Ryan Sullivan.

Two innings later, during the fourth inning, Madison took the lead.  The Dodgers had a three run fourth inning with the help of Dias and Connor Higgins.  Dias roped his second single of the game to left field, which scored Jake Meister.  Then Higgins crushed a double in the left field gap to plate two runs.

Madison led 5-3 heading to the top of the fifth inning.

Livingston had an offensive outburst in the fifth inning. Led by Levy and Kimmel, yet again, Livingston plated six runs.  Levy had a one run double while Kimmel hit a two run single.  Brady McLaughlin followed with a single that drove in Kimmel.  After a Brian Drapeau walk, Matt Rehm drove in both McLaughlin and Drapeau.

“It wasn’t about our hitting today,” Kimmel said.  “We turned two huge double plays and played a solid defensive game, which has hurt us over the course of the year.”

Sullivan gave the Lancers five solid innings of work and earned the win.  Sam White came in and gave Livingston two scoreless relief innings.

“We have to keep rolling,” Levy said.  “Our game tomorrow is the biggest game of the season and then the next.  We’re taking each game one at a time and that’s why we have been so successful over our past six games.”

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
