RAHWAY, NJ - The Summit High School Boys Varsity Baseball Team, after a series of three commanding wins, went back to their early-season habit of being involved in pulse-quickening finishes however, this time, they were -- for the first game this season -- on the losing end of an exciting outcome.

Rahway pushed across a run in the bottom of the 10th inning on a steal of home, and The Maroon and White dropped their first decision of the season, 9-8.

The Hilltoppers led 8-1 heading to the bottom of the sixth, but allowed four runs in that inning and three in the bottom of the seventh to send the game to extras.
