Phil Anastasia: Lenape 10-runs Eastern in SJ Group 4 tourney

Jeff McGarry went 3-for-3 with 3 RBIs and Kevin Milley pitched a complete game as Lenape beat Eastern, 11-0, in the SJ Group 4 semifinals on Tuesday.

Lenape (18-8) the No. 8 seed, advances to face Millville in the sectional final on Friday.

Milley, a sophomore left-hander, allowed just four hits in a game that was shortened to five innings by the 10-run rule.

"I kept the ball down," Milley said.

Eastern (21-8) had beaten Lenape twice in the regular season but the Indians got some payback in the tournament.

McGarry, a senior third baseman, had a pair of RBI singles and an RBI double.

Senior first baseman Bryan Clayton was 3-for-4 with two RBIs and senior second baseman Chris Malinowski had two hits, reached base three times and scored two runs for Lenape.

Junior shortstop Tyler Love had two singles for Eastern, which will finish its season Wednesday night in the championship game of the Camden County Tournament against Cherry Hill West.
