NJ Marlins outlast the Manalapan Vipers in high-scoring affair, 14-11

Fans were treated to a high-scoring affair Sunday as the 12U NJ Marlins outscored the Manalapan Vipers 14-11 in six innings. The teams combined for 15 hits, including six extra base hits. The teams traded runs for most of the contest, leading to 10 lead changes in the game.

Manalapan jumped out to an early 5-0 lead in the top of the first. The Marlins got their bats going early, scoring six runs in the first inning to pull ahead of the Vipers with a long grand-slam off the bat of Robert Kauffman, with no outs, after 2 walks and a single to start the inning. The Marlins added two more runs with Nick Alviggi stealing home and Julian Zingler scoring on an error.

The Marlins brought home four runs in the third inning, and matched that run total in the fifth. In the third, the Marlins scored on a sacrifice fly by Kaufman, bringing home Brett Subers.

A key fifth-inning rally gave the Marlins the lead for good with Kyle Subers recording the final six outs to record the save, his first of the season.

Mike McCarthy got it done on the hill on the way to a win. He allowed two runs over three innings. The Marlins pitcher struck out two, walked none and surrendered four hits in relief of starter Matt Hahn.

Hahn, Kaufman and Brett Subers helped lead the Marlins offensively combining for four hits and six RBIs.
