CARTERET, NJ - The Spotswood High School varsity baseball team completed the sweep over Carteret High School on Saturday, April 22 with a 5-0 victory. Their win streak now stands at nine games in a row after winning a second game in the afternoon over the Academy for Urban Leadership Charter, 17-1. Matthew Ciaccio pitched a four-hitter for the Chargers against Carteret, striking out five. Michael App, Jacob Jarosz and Chris Pena all spent time on the mound for Carteret, giving up a combined 10 hits. App had six strikeouts for the Ramblers.

Nick Mohr had three singles and two RBIs for Spotswood while Vinnie Guardiola was two-for-four with a double. Mike Izzo and Nick Vincelli both had RBIs for the Chargers. Michael Gurzynski had two hits for Carteret including a double.

After shutting out Carteret, the Chargers returned to their home field for a soggy afternoon contest against the Academy for Urban Leadership Charter. The Chargers blew the game wide open in the second and third, scoring eight runs in both innings for the lopsided 17-1 victory. Matt Amador got the win on the mound for the Chargers.

Saturday's two wins improved the Chargers' overall season record to 11-2. They are first in the Greater Middlesex Conference Blue Division with an 8-0 record and are undefeated in league play. The Chargers will play in the Autism Awareness Baseball Challenge today at 10 a.m. at the Spotswood High School Varsity Basebal Field. Spotswood will take on Robinsville High School.
