Butler-ToshHillbilly baseball put a win in the records yesterday, and it was a big one: In their first win of the season, the Verona High School team defeated Butler High School 11-1 before a very appreciative home field crowd.

The opening pitches by Max Vasile set the tone for the game, which was almost entirely in Verona’s control: Vasile struck out eight Butler batters on the afternoon. Butler’s lone score came on a spectacular home run by Dan Castaglia that was so deep into right field that it looked as if it were going to land in the backyards on Franklin Street.

Butler-VasileSenior Jon Tosh was a standout for VHS with a home run, three RBIs and two runs. Co-captain Luke Sniatkowski slammed a double late in the game, and there were RBIs to the credit of Dean DeNicola, PJ Lombardi, Matt Rubins, Paul Scully and Luke Weiss.
