ROXBURY, NJ – The Roxbury High School baseball team heads into today's game having tasted both the excitement of clobbering another team and the weight of being clobbered.
As the Gaels head to Morristown-Beard School for a 4 p.m. contest, they are hoping to get back on the upside and improve their 6-4 record.
After dominating Parsippany Hills on April 18 with a 12-2 victory, Roxbury found itself on the other side of the see-saw on April 20 when it was shutout 4-0 by Seton Hall Prep. During that game, only two Gaels got hits: Michael Roumes (who had a double) and Andy Axelson.
Roumes also pitched an inning, allowing three hits and one run. The bulk of the game was pitched by Darren Wyse who threw 88 pitches over four innings, allowing three hits and three runs.
Seton Hall Prep pitcher Jamil Vanheyningen pitched six of the game’s seven innings, notching nine strikeouts and allowing the two Roxbury hits.
During the Parsippany Hills game, Roxbury pitcher Donovan Brady pitched six innings, with Erik Simonsen serving as closer.
