Clutch defense and timely hitting carried Lehigh Valley to a 5-3 victory over Burlington County Tuesday in the title game of the 26th annual Carpenter Cuper Classic baseball tournament in Citizens Bank Park.

Lehigh Valley managed just five hits but got a two-run double from Nazareth's Drew Hercik and an RBI single from Pleasant Valley's Drew Borger that snapped a 3-3 tie in the fourth inning.

Lehigh Valley added another run on an infield error in top of the ninth inning to capture its third title in Carpenter Cup history.

Lehigh Valley also turned three double plays in the final five innings, short-circuiting Burlington County rallies in the fifth, sixth and eighth innings.

Nazareth junior right-hander Karl Keglovits was the dominating pitcher for Lehigh Valley in the tournament. He worked 11 2/3 innings, allowing four hits and one run with 18 strikeouts.

Burlington County got the leadoff runner on base in the fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth without scoring a run.

Maple Shade's Kevin McMenamin hit a two-run homer in the first inning for Burlington County.
