Baseball: Clifton books ticket for Passaic County Tourney final

Kyle Rogers gave up just three hits and an unearned run to lift top-ranking Clifton to a 2-1 victory over fourth-seeded West Milford in the semifinal round of the Passaic County Tournament Saturday afternoon.

Clifton will now face second-seeded Passaic Tech, a 4-3 winner of third-seeded DePaul, in the championship game to be held at Passaic Tech on Tuesday at 5:00 PM. The matchup is a rematch of last year’s county tournament semifinals, which Passaic Tech won 8-4.

Rogers also struckout 11 batters for Clifton (16-4) by taking the win on the mound while delivering an RBI single at the plate.

Juan Peralta was the lone Mustang to score multiple hits thanks to a solo homerun and a single. Luis Rivera added the other extra-base hit for Clifton thanks to a double.
