In game one, Mike Lowrey was superb on the mound, pitching a complete-game no-hitter. Lowrey was in the midst of a perfect game until an errant throw pulled first baseman Mike Dinoto off the bag in the fifth inning.
It was the only base-runner Farmingdale would get, as Lowrey buckled down and retired every remaining opposing batter. He finished with 10 strikeouts on the day.
Lowrey, Dinoto, Vincent Florido and John Massa each had a hit in the 3-1 victory.
In game two, the Wanderers had a slim 5-4 lead until they erupted for five runs in the fifth inning. Massa, Joey Depperman, Johnny Liquori, Brandon Rosenthal and Tony Zorrilla had two hits each, while Dinoto, Florido, Lowrey, Anthony Polito and Nick Zavattieri had a hit apiece in the 12-4 win.
Zavattieri pitched the first three innings and picked up the win, while Greg Polkowski pitched the final three innings, allowing only one hit and striking out three.
An alert Joey Depperman pulled off a delayed steal of home. Catcher Brandon Rosenthal threw out three would-be base stealers.
