The Snugs broke open a close game with a six-run second inning before cruising to victory.
Ed Rethorn led SH’s attack with two hits, a walk, two RBI and three runs scored.
After Ceasar Figueroa’s sac fly gave Snug Harbor a 1-0 lead after an inning, the Livingston loop scored six more times thanks in part to Harrison Roche (walk), Rethorn (single), Ryan Sandberg (fielder’s choice) and Mateo Gordon (double).
Logan Kielty also had an RBI for the winners.

Snug Harbor 14, GK American 2
The Snugs batted around in the top of the first inning to grab control early and starting pitcher Nick Neville did the rest as they cruised to the second-round win.
After Ray Guerriero and Kento Chalmers opened the game with back-to-back singles, Dylan Bligh and Andrew Cavagnaro followed with run-scoring hits to give SH a quick 2-0 lead. Dennis Corson later added an RBI single and Snug Harbor owned a 5-0 lead before GKA batted.
"To come out like that right off the bat put us at ease,'' explained SHLL coach Ray Guerriero, whose team finished with 15 hits, including three (two doubles) from Cavagnaro. "We’ve been practicing non-stop, even in rain and mud, and although the kids have been having fun, they’ve been doing everything we asked of them and they played with a lot of confidence after taking the big lead.''
The Snugs took a 6-0 lead thanks to Sam Figueroa’s RBI single in the fourth and even though GKA responded with a two-run single by Brian Lincotta, the visitors got a run back in the fifth on Danny Mills’ RBI single.
The Livingston look then broke the game wide-open with a five-run sixth, thanks in part to Guerriero (RBI single), Chalmers (RBI single), Bligh (two-run single) and Cavagnaro (RBI double).
Neville, meanwhile, allowed just the two earned runs on four hits and three walks. He finished with three Ks before Chalmers pitched the sixth to finish the game.
“It’s a huge win because we now don’t play again until Friday,'' added Ray Guerriero. “I knew we’d hit and we did. But we needed our guys to pitch well against a good team that can hit and they did a good job.”
Snug Harbor 3, GK American 1
Althoff fired a one-hitter with no walks to lead SHLL to victory.
The southpaw, who allowed one unearned run in the fifth, finished with nine strikeouts.
Althoff received plenty of defensive support from first baseman Shane Gordon, shortstop Kyle Martinez and catcher Rich O’Keefe.
The Snugs scored all the runs they would need in the first two innings, including an RBI single by Tyler Stern.
