HNT Baseball: Petosa sets school record for career hits as Spotswood rallies

Senior center fielder Joe Petosa set the Spotswood High School baseball team's career record for hits while leading the Chargers to a 7-6 comeback victory over J.P. Stevens on Wednesday.

Petosa led off the sixth inning with a single through the left side of the infield for his 116th career hit, breaking the mark previously held by 2007 graduate Mike Hohman. Petosa scored on Shawn Weeks' homer as Spotswood closed the deficit to 5-3.

Petosa's clutch two-out RBI single in the seventh forged a 5-5 tie. Brian Smith belted a two-run double later in the inning for a 7-5 lead.

Spotswood used five pitchers including Jamie Cullen, who earned his first varsity win, and closer Cody Pace, who recorded the save.

Losing pitcher Mike Zinno struck out seven and went 3-for-3 at the plate.
