The other two upset were a bit milder. Tenth-seed Spotswood knocked off 7th-seed East Brunswick, but whether it’s really an upset is up for debate. The Chargers beat East Brunswick earlier this week in their annual Commander’s Cup game 6-5 in Spotswood on a walk-off double by Ty Lewandowski.

The other lower seed to win was 9th-ranked North Brunswick topping 8-seed Metuchen 3-2.
