At one time the St. John's Prep baseball team may have looked iffy as a tournament qualifier when it had records of 6-5 and 7-6. It had opened the season 6-1.

Neal steals one for the Prep

UNH-bound senior Peter Neal stole home in the bottom of the seventh to lift the Eagles (8-6) to a dramatic, crucial victory over St. Peter's Marian 3-2. The speedy Neal pinch ran for Kyle Pettoruto, who hit a two-out double, and stole third before beating the tag at the plate. He also threw a runner out at the plate from leftfield and made a diving catch to save runs in the top of the seventh.

The Eagles outlasted St. Peter's Marian lefty ace Keith Landers, who is slated to pitch at Louisville next year, thanks in part to an RBI single from Trevor Manzi and Danny Haugh, who scored on a wild pitch. Chris Carmain went the distance on the hill, striking out eight while allowing six hits and two runs, one of which was earned.
