After surrendering a 5-1 lead the Raiders battled back to beat Sachem East 8-7. Andrew Garcia, Matt Codispoti and Rich Ciufo each had two hits in the game. Josh Browning came on to relieve Nick Clemente in the 5th and picked up the win. PM scored a run in the 6th when PJ Martino singled home pinch hitter Jon Warasila, who had doubled to lead off the inning to cut the Sachem lead to 7-6
Andrew Garcia then led off the top of the 7th with a home run to tie the score. Codispoti singled and moved to second when Ciufo reached on an error. They both moved up on a balk. Freshman Brad Malm delivered the game winner with a sacrifice fly to right that scored Codispoti. Game 2 of the series is scheduled for Tuesday at PMHS.
