WAPPINGERS FALLS — The Monroe-Woodbury Varsity Baseball Team took on the Beacon High School Bulldogs in the Spring Bash Baseball Tournament last Thursday, April 13, under the lights at Dutchess Stadium.

The Crusaders jumped out to a four-run lead in the top of the second inning. The key hit was a two-out double by Nick Rivera that drove in a run.

The Crusaders added 2 more runs in the top of the fourth. This time it was Drew Jemison’s two-out RBI-double that provided the spark.

In the top of the fifth inning, the Crusaders erupted and scored six runs on four hits while bringing 11 batters to the plate.

Nick Weyant got the big hit this time when he put a shot over the right fielder’s head for a base-clearing three-RBI double.

The Crusaders starting pitcher Nick Rivera pitched a no-hitter and struck out eight Bulldogs while picking up the win for the Crusaders.

The Crusaders' 12-0 victory over Beacon brought their record to 4-0 on the season and gives them their second consecutive Spring Bash Baseball Tournament championship.
