LIVINGSTON, NJ - Ryan Sullivan and his Lancer squad defeated their rivals, the Millburn Millers, Thursday afternoon in Millburn. Sullivan pitched a six-hitter while striking out five through six innings.
 
“Pitching is key to our success this year,” Sullivan said. “Between me, Brady (McLaughlin), and Brian (Drapeau) we have three top premier pitchers.”
 
Sullivan followed his fellow teammate Brian Drapeau with back-to-back stellar performances by a Livingston starter.
 
“Brian pitched an incredible game in our opener on Tuesday against Bloomfield,” Sullivan continued. “All I could do was follow his lead and that is what got us a win.”
 
Sullivan retired the first six Millers on 22 pitches.
 
Junior Daniel Frischman matched Sullivan pitch for pitch until the fourth inning when Livingston plated three runs. 
 
Livingston outfielder Brandon Levy had a three-run two out single. This gave Livingston a 3-0 lead heading into the bottom of the inning.
 
Millburn scored their lone run in the bottom half of the fourth. Tim Swanson grounded into a fielder’s choice, which plated Ian Barry.
 
Livingston countered as they scored four more runs in the fifth inning, led by outfield John Sorrentino, who hit a three-run triple, then by second baseman Connor Kimmel, who followed with a two-run double.
 
“With the way we hit today and the way our pitchers have been throwing we’re looking very strong right now,” Kimmel said.
 
Towson-bound Brady McLaughlin shut down the Millers in the bottom of the seventh as he struck out two of the three batters he faced.
 
“We have a huge game Saturday against Seton Hall. Both teams are always ready to play when we see the schedule come out in the winter,” Sullivan concluded.
