It was one of those games that no lead seemed to be safe. Both teams sent a total of twenty-six crossing the plate that indicated the offense was clicking on all cylinders. Trying to do all that he could, pitcher Calvin Lewis survived Penns Grove 17-9 win over Wildwood with not just his pitching arm. Lewis stepped up at the plate during the bottom of the fifth inning and delivered a grand slam to push the Red Devils ahead for good.
Wildwood’s two run lead quickly disappeared during the bottom of the third inning. Lewis’ base clearing home run looked to be enough runs to finally put this game out of reach. The Warriors would get right back into this game by scoring two more runs and trailed by only a run, 6-5 heading into the bottom of the fifth. Lewis would hit his second home run of the game highlighting a seven run fifth inning that finally proved to be the decisive runs to win this game. Will Morey delivered a two run home run for the Warriors from Wildwood.
