There are those special games that you mark on your calendar at the beginning of the season as a must-see. Usually it's a divisional rivalry or just two teams that have always peak your interest to see who would come out on top. For Cinnaminson and Delran, it would be a game to see if they could hand the other their first loss of the season. Both of these Burlington County Patriot divisional teams were riding a five game winning streak and wanted that success to continue. On this day, the Pirates were the team winning their sixth game in a row by posting a 6-1 victory. Dave Mebs picked up his 100th hit in his high school career for Cinnaminson.
So far this season and last, the Pirates have been successful against the Bears from Delran. Both of these teams met last year in the second round of the South Jersey Group 2 playoffs with Cinnaminson picking up their third win in a row against Delran. The Pirates were well on their way of picking up their fourth straight win by jumping out to a 2-0 lead behind the pitching of Eric Gertie. Delran would get one run back in the third inning, but a four run fourth inning was enough for Cinnaminson to remain on top and undefeated in their division.
