ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School baseball team, having lost two in a row before Saturday's game against Warren Hills, righted the ship and got back to winning.

The Gaels defeated Warren Hills 4-1, a victory that brings their record to 5-2.  The team allowed the only run to take place in the fifth inning. It had jumped to an early lead with one run in the first inning but solidified its chances with three more in the fifth. 

On Friday, the team lost its second in a row , falling 3-2 against  Bayonne in a close contest. That loss followed a 0-1 loss to Pope John XXIII on April 12.

Roxbury's next game is Monday against Bridgewater-Raritan.
