ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School baseball season ended Tuesday in disappointing fashion as the Gaels lost 1-0 to Somerville in a NJSIAA Group 3 semifinal game.

Roxbury did not go down easy, enduring a pitcher's duel that saw an excellent performance by its man on the mound, Donovan Brady, an effort matched by Somerville's Thomas Babalis.

The hurlers kept the game scoreless until the seventh inning. Babalis threw a 2-hitter with ten strikeouts. Brady got two strikeouts and allowed five hits and three walks.

The standoff ended in the seventh inning when Somerville's Matt Miceli cranked a sacrifice fly that allowed Ryan Koracs to score. Roxbury put up a good fight afterward; a single by Brian Dachowski, and a stolen second base, set up by Andy Axelson.

He bunted to advance Dachowski and got thrown out at first. Then Will Findlay got hit by a pitch and took first as the go-ahead run. Michael Roumes moved Dachowski to third and Findlay to second with a fielder's choice. Under pressure and facing two outs, Ryan DiTrolio gave his best but couldn't connect with a nasty pitch by Miceli and struck out. 

The game concluded as did a season that saw Roxbury attain an 18-10-1 record.
