The Allentown High School baseball team rode the arm of Jordan Winston and the bat of Ryan Huth to advance to the championship game of the NJSIAA Group III state tournament.
Allentown will play Cranford High School for the Group III state title on June 10 at Toms River High School South. The state group final will begin at 11 a.m.
Allentown advanced to the state championship game when the Redbirds defeated Highland Regional High School, 7-4, in the group semifinal that was played on June 7 at the Rowan University Gloucester County College campus in Sewell.
Winston pitched 5 and 2/3 innings to secure the victory while Huth ended with three hits. One of his hits, a two-run single, was the crucial blow in the fifth inning when Allentown struck with four runs to break a tie and move to a 7-3 lead.
