    It’s Section 3 champ Robbinsville against Section 1 champ Ridgewood.

    I have seen both of these teams play, against Livingston, and was impressed by each squad.

    Either way, New Jersey is going to have a deserving 11U Champ after this contest.

      Steve, off topic. I was noticing the high pitch counts for both teams in the Tiger series. Question. Any studies on winning or losing streaks that teams go on, according to total pitches, that a staff throws over a period of, let’s say a week, maybe two (tidy sentence)? Any insight that you know of, or have read would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      @ KPOcala:
      I have to think about it. Probably can be done with B-R.com PI.

      Thanks for whatever you can come up with. I’ve a hunch that over a season there would be a correlation with staff “slumps”. I.E., something we all “know” about the rotation being the “back-bone” of a team. But when the starters and the relievers are worn out together….just “speculating”.

      The recap from last night:

      BASEBALL
      Ridgewood 5, Robbinsville 4

      The Robbinsville 11-Year-Old All-Stars have been involved in some close games in the New Jersey State Little League tournament including last night’s 5-4 loss to Ridgewood American.

      Representing Section 1, Ridgewood pushed across a run with two outs in the bottom of the sixth to force the winner-take-all game that will determine the state championship tonight at 7 at Campbell Field at Middletown Little League’s home complex, Bodman Park.

      Samuel Favieri singled and Calvin Wang scored to knock Robbinsville from the unbeaten ranks.

      Representing District 12 and Section 3, Robbinsville scored twice in the first inning, but Ridgewood tied it in the second and went ahead 4-2 in the fifth.

      Robbinsville — which was led by Jack Gillmer, who went 3-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored, and McGwire Tuffy, who was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored — tied the score in the top of the sixth.

      Benjamin Geraghty had two hits, two RBIs and scored a run for Ridgewood, which rebounded from a tournament-opening 5-4 loss to Livingston National to win three consecutive games including a 7-6 victory over the Blackwood Kiwanis of Section 4.

      Gillmer got Robbinsville off to a good start when he hit a leadoff home run, and Tuffy also doubled and scored on a wild pitch in the first.

      Ridgewood’s Andrew Olson pitched a complete game, allowing seven hits and four runs as he struck out three and walked none.
