In the Marion third, Harrell reached on a fielder’s choice, advanced on Chisler’s single past short and scored on a wobbling single upthemiddle by Waltz.
The fourth through sixth innings were offensively silent but Roofers Wacter and Granata snared several screaming shots. Granata also sent a loud message, halting wouldbe Comcast runners, with a rifle shot throw to home after catching a fly ball in deep left.
The “metal sticks” awakened in the seventh as Comcast banged out four runs. DiMartino chopped a single
past the second baseman and tagged up on a fly to right, Spanier squiggled a single over second and Lehman poked an RBI single past short. Kopacz knocked a tworun single to left and Stumpf and Ferro both singled. Finally, Deo dropped an RBI single into right.
The Roofers did not leave quietly in the seventh and barked out the final two runs as Wacter reached on a fielder’s choice and Harrell hammered his tworun shot onto the dirt infield of the ball field in left.

SECOND PLACE FINISHERS:… The Westfield 8yearold Boys Traveling Baseball Team placed second in the Colonia Tournament. Pictured, left to right, are: front row; Tim Werner, Mike Greco, Tyler Becker, Brett Johnson, Kevin Hearon and David Fishman; middle row, Ryan Krasnoo, Patrick Perrilli, Robert Anderson, Kevin Clancy, Jonathan Brucia and Zach Helfand; top row, Mark Perrelli, Jay Anderson, Bob Hearon and Jim Johnson. Not pictured is Dylan Simon.
Zipler performed some magic at short to close out the fifth and Culinane silenced all three batters in the sixth.
Bob Swisher also quieted Russell in the fifth and sixth and received a spectacular, on the run, overthehead catch from shortstop Kennedy in shallow right field.
Looking for some insurance in the seventh, Marian set out to do what it does best – bunt. Bill Swisher laid down a bunt which rolled slowly down the third baseline but remained fair. Jim Swisher tried the same, but Culinane grabbed it and threw to first for the out. A routine fly to center followed by another remarkable snag by Buchwald, quelled the insurance policy.
“Roadster” Scher led off the seventh with a ripping shot to left and facedove into second for a double. Rob Rowland sliced an insideout RBI single over third, Culinane looped a single over short, then Zipler stunned them all with his tworun game winner.

come on in relief and took the advantage quickly with a huge solo home run by McLaughlin in the fifth. That was not all, as Roselle Park totaled five runs of damage in the inning.
Westfield Blue refused to be outdone, however, as Fiorino added another RBI to his 2for3 day and Tom Meyler put two RBI on the board as well to knot the score, entering the sixth inning.
Neither team could get a run across in the sixth, so to extra innings they went.
In the top of the seventh, Williams struck out his fifth batter, but the defense foiled under the pressure, made some errors and allowed one Roselle Park run.
Westfield Blue threatened in the bottom of the inning but Roselle Park held on to win.
Blue Head Coach Tom Lent put the game into perspective after the loss, saying, “We still have at least two games left. We’re going to have a lot of fun playing baseball, and eat a lot of hot dogs and burgers. That’s what it’s all about.”
Westfield ended the tournament with a 12 record, putting themselves
out of contention for yesterday’s playoff games. Blue’s counterpart, Westfield White, also ended the tourney with a 12 record and no playoff spot. The playoff teams were Berkeley, Elmora, West Caldwell, Roselle Park, and Edison.
