PARSIPPANY — Somerset Hills Little League hosted today’s championship game between Par-Troy West 12U and Randolph.
Nicholas Dragone was the starting pitcher for Parsippany. It was a pitchers duel from the start but Randolph held a 2-0 lead late in the game. After Jonah Smith came in relief and shut down Randolph in the bottom of the 5th, Parsippany was down to their last 3 outs. Josh Smith lead off the 6th inning by legging out an infield single.
Nicholas Dragone and Eddie Lamperti followed with singles of their own and Parsippany would find themselves with the based loaded, no outs. After a pitching change, Trevor Snellings stepped up to the plate and put the first pitch over the left field fence for a grand slam home run.
Josh Smith came in for the save in the bottom of the 6th as Par-Troy West Little League wins the New Jersey District One Championship 4-3.
