A three-run outburst in the bottom of the sixth inning, aided by one costly Academy Park error, propelled Chichester to a 9-7 Del Val League victory.
Damian Thompson legged out a triple to start the Eagles’ rally. Dave Heffron and Jason Riberio each drove in two runs, while winning pitcher Anthony Caramanico had two hits. Ryan Boyers and Hunter Killinen both had an RBI for Chi (13-3, 11-3).
Rob Long belted a home run and Matt Thomas and Billy Martin both tripled for AP.
Chichester swept the season series with AP, 3-0.
