Dobies and Andrew Jotz each had two hits and two RBI and each delivered a long extra-base hit to the wall at Millburn's field. Kipp also knocked in a pair of runs and Matt Bender stole five bases in the game, which concluded with shortstop Brendan Fay making a spectacular diving catch with the bases loaded.
