Moore Township's Connie Mack team had a big victory Monday night, knocking off Freemansburg 10-5.

The win came thanks to some fantastic pitching from Daniel Thomas and Nick Demeiri, according to head coach Bob Brooks.

Thomas went three-and-two-thirds innings, and was on the short end of some calls, according to his coach. Demeiri came in with the bases loaded and the game tied at 5-5 and didn't allow another run to score to help give Moore the momentum the rest of the way.

While the solid pitching was going on, the bats also came alive.
