Greetings sports fanatics! Today the Quakertown Blazers hosted the New Brunswick Matrix in a DH. The Blazers won game 1 by the final score of 9-3 thanks to the strong pitching effort of Eddie Olsen of Moravian and Malachi Duka of Lebanon Valley. But the biggest storyline was Owen Petrich of Delaware breaking Pat Kelly’s record for most HRs in a season with his 12th in a season!

The Matrix got the scoring started in the 1st when Jacob Veczko of Dayton hit a single to score Christian Petrillo of Middlesex CC. The Blazers would tie the game in the bottom of the 4th when Eric Shandler of UMBC hit a groundout to score Tommy Faggioni of Alvernia. The Blazers would take the lead for good when Sean Szestowicki of West Chester hit a double to score RJ Huth of Chestnut Hill to cap the scoring at 2-1. Barberio and Tom McLaughlin of Franklin and Marshall combine for throw for 6 hitless innings after Cody gave up 3 in the 1st. The sweep clinched the regular season title for the Blazers!
