With the cutoff to make the playoffs approaching face, there are those teams playing with urgency and then there are those who just play. Eastern, already with a record to make the post season, did not panic when their early three run lead disappeared quickly. The Quakers from Moorestown had successful hit their way past Eastern and looked to have had the early lead. But a consistent offense from the Vikings allowed them to score in every inning but one to post a 9-6 win.
Eastern found themselves down by a 5-2 margin after watching Moorestown score five runs during their top half of the second inning. The Quakers would continue to put runners in scoring position in order to overcome a three run deficit. Scoring two runs during the last three at bats was enough to give Eastern their eighth win of the season. Will Carney picked up the win for Eastern.
