George Lovett knocked in five runs on three doubles and earned a complete game win in an 11-4 victory over top-seeded Pigs Heaven on Sunday. The win puts the Reds up 1-0 in the best-of-three series set to resume this Sunday in Somers Point. Lovett struck out 13 batters in the contest, as the Reds opened defense of their 2004 crown. Earlier in the day, the Reds advanced to the Quarter Final round with a 15-5 rout of the Manahawkin Royals. The Reds put the Royals away early with a 12-run third inning. That was enough for Brad Zerbe who won his third straight playoff game dating back to last year. Mark Kraus (2-2) had two RBI and Darin D'Andrea (2-3) drove in four in the 14-hit attack.
