RANDOLPH, NJ – After allowing a run in the first inning, the Roxbury High School baseball team pitchers slammed the lid, marking the end of rival Randolph’s offense, and paving the way for a 2-1 Roxbury victory on Monday.

It wasn’t exactly a slugfest for the Gaels either, but the team’s two runs in the fifth – on RBIs from Donovan Brady and Michael Roumes - proved to be just enough. Roumes slammed a triple to open the game for Roxbury but was left standing on third base when the inning ended.

Nick Danna started on the mound and went four innings, allowing three hits, one run and nailing three strikeouts. Brady took over for the final three innings, allowing only one hit and no runs to seal the Gaels’ win. In doing so, Roxbury ended Randolph's status as undefeated and propelled itself to the top position in Morris County.

Randolph’s sole run came from an RBI triple banged by Jake Barbiere. Randolph pitching was handled by Thomas Ippolito and Chris Doidge, each allowing one Roxbury run.

Weather permitting, Roxbury, now 8-4, next plays West Morris Central on April 26.

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.
