Mark Scarpa dazzles as Cherokee captures another Grand Slam title


Winning the Grand Slam Classic is becoming commonplace for the Minutemen.

Junior Mark Scarpa pitched seven shutout innings as Washington Township defeated Cherokee, 1-0, to win the Grand Slam Classic championship for the third year in a row.

Scarpa struck out five, walked none, and was named the tournament's most valuable player.

"It's a tough tournament," Washington Township head coach Bill Alvaro said. "We're fortunate that we've been able to win it a couple of years in a row."

The lone run of the game came in the top of the second inning, when Nick Hartz hit an RBI single. 

Cherokee's Brian Marconi also pitched valiantly, going seven innings, allowing four hits, and striking out five.
