JEFFERSON, NJ - In a blowout game that allowed its coach to use a number of players who normally get limited playing time, the Roxbury High School baseball team on Friday trounced Jefferson 16-5.
The tone was set early as the Gaels racked up eight runs in the first inning while Jefferson scored none. That wouldn't happen for the remainder of the contest. In fact, Jefferson scored two runs in the second inning while keeping Roxbury off the scoreboard.
But after scoring two in the second and three in the third, Jefferson's bats went cold. The Falcons scored no runs after the third while Roxbury scored two in the fifth and two in the sixth.
The win puts Roxbury's record at 10-4 and might set the right tone for the team as it competes Saturday against Morris Hills in Morris County Tournament Play. That game is scheduled for noon at home.
