MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Roxbury High School baseball team lost a close one Tuesday to Columbia in a game that ended 3-2.
Roxbury's bats coudn't overcome strong pitching by Columbia's Danny Boehmer, who struck out 14 Gaels and walked only one.
Boehmer pitched a one-hitter in his first start for the Cougars last week.
Despite the loss, Roxbury put up a good fight, as only three Columbia batters crossed the plate despite nine Cougars getting hits.
Roxbury next plays West Morris in an away game on Thursday.
