ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School baseball team defeated West Morris Central 11-9 on Wednesday, rallying in the third inning after the Wolfpack had gained a 7-3 lead. 

In that inning, Roxbury banged out five runs that, added to the three it scored in the first inning from walks and infield errors, put the Gaels on top 8-7.

Coming into the third inning with a good lead, West Morris failed to capitalize. Roxbury took the opposite approach, with singles by Andy Axelson and Dan Hankowski and a hard hit by Will Findlay, whose grounder to third was too hot to handle for the Wolfpack player, allowing two more Roxbury runners to cross the plate.

In the lead going into the fourth inning, the Gaels loaded the bases with walks and a double by Brian Dachowski. Then, Michael Roumes smashed a bases-clearing triple line-drive over third bringing the score to 11-3 where it stayed until the game ended.

The victory brings Roxbury's record to 9-4 as it goes into a game today against Jefferson.
