Tusten ran its Wayne County Teener League winning streak to 13 straight Monday night in Narrowsburg. Coach Joe Curreri's lads rode the heavy hitting of Jared Meyer, Peter Kelly and EJ Franskevicz to an imressive 11-2 victory over the Re-Max Renegades.
The Southern Division's two best teams met Monday night in Narrowsburg, looking to gain a foothold atop the Wayne County Teener League's overall standings.
Tusten put out the proverbial welcome mat for Re-Max, but proved to be less-than-gracious hosts. The Chiefs used a potent combination of power pitching and heavy hitting in rolling to an 11-2 victory over the Renegades.
"Re-Max always has a good team, so for us to beat them like this is a pretty good sign of where we are right now," Coach Joe Curreri told TWI Sports. "I'm very happy with how things are coming together. We're a veteran team and tonight we played like one."
EJ Franskevicz led the Chiefs' offensive assault with a towering 2-run homer to right center. He was aided & abetted by teammates Jordan Meyer and Peter Kelly.
Meyer ripped a double and triple and scored three runs from his lead-off spot. Kelly reached base in four of his five at-bats and tallied four times.
Ryan Alsdorf was the starter and winner for Tusten. The hard-throwing righty pitched five innings en route to the decision. He was relieved in the sixth by Meyer, who worked the final two frames.
