The 25th annual Carpenter Cup all-star baseball tournament opened at F.D.R. Park's Richie Ashburn Field on Monday with a rare triple header that included no teams from Southeastern Pennsylvania.
That will change during the second day of action on Tuesday when four of the six teams are from Pennsylvania, including a 12:30 p.m. all-Philadelphia matchup between the Catholic League and Public League.
South Jersey's Olympic/Colonial kicked off the tournament with a five-run rally in the top of the ninth to defeat South Jersey rival Tri-Cape, 10-9.
Bishop Eustace centerfielder John Litz tied the score, 9-9, with a two-out, three-run home run, and the winning run came on a double steal attempt with Camden County Tech's Wilson Ulloa crossing home plate on a throwing error.
Defending champion Burlington County overcame a 5-2 deficit after four innings to defeat Delaware South, 13-6.
Olympic/Colonial will meet Burlington County in Friday's 9 a.m. game with the winner advancing to the June 28 semifinal at Citizens Bank Park.
