LIVINGSTON, NJ - Continuing to get stellar pitching from its starters, the Summit High School Varsity Baseball Team has improved its record to an impressive 8-3 on the season after winning consecutive games over Hanover Park and Livingston.

Against Hanover Park at Memorial Field, The Maroon and White pounded out 12 hits over five innings, and plated eight runs in the bottom of the third to blow out the Hornets. Senior captains Grant Douglas and Matt Murdock went a combined 5-for-8 with five runs batted in, while sophomore catcher Justin Weiss went 2-for-4 with two RBI.

Matt Mormile went the distance on the hill for the Hilltoppers, allowing only five hits and walking just two batters.

Two days later, Summit traveled to Livingston and Ben Lim delivered a dandy of performance on the mound, throwing seven innings of three-hit ball, striking out nine and walking but a lone batter. Lim threw 99 pitches in the complete-game effort.

Summit managed just six hits itself against the Lancers' Tommy Kelly, two from Douglas, and fellow captain Andrew Miller had the only RBI, with the other run coming home via the unearned route.

Summit next heads to AL Johnson April 25, with first pitch set for 4 p.m.
