Tom Davis sent us this personal look at the Metuchen Little League 9's win over Hazelton. Don't call it a comeback . . . call it am honest-to-goodness winning streak! Check out his pix here.
Metuchen beats Hazlet, a virtual travel team that's known for steamrolling the competition. Adam hurls nearly five innings and gives up three runs, making clutch pitches at the right moments. Big clutch hits from Tommy Faggioni, Michael Fucille, Jared Manley, Liam Walker and Adam. These resilient kids played two innings under teaming rain. My son (sorry to brag), Jonathan, went 2-3, drove in about four runs (including the go-ahead, I believe), snagged three balls at second base that were a little out of reach and then got the save in a dramatic sixth inning (some kid hit an out-of-the-park home run against him). Jon pitched in three games in two days: one win, two saves.
