Moorestown baseball coach Bill Donoghue celebrated his 200th victory on Friday, with Chance Embler's grand slam igniting a seven-run second inning that sent the host Quakers past Pemberton, 16-4, in the Burlington County League.
Donoghue has amassed a 200-116 career record during his 17 seasons at Moorestown.

In another Burlco game, Kevin Smith batted 3 for 3, knocked in five runs and scored twice to highlight New Egypt's 17-3 romp at Westampton Tech.
Cape-Atlantic. Buena, ranked No. 4 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, appeared to be on the verge of a comeback win in the bottom of the seventh inning.
The Chiefs had pushed across a run and had the bases loaded with two outs, but St. Joseph shortstop Jordan Barbone made a diving catch of Matt Luisi's line drive to short left field, sealing the Wildcats' 3-2 road upset.
St. Joseph did all of its scoring in the third inning, including Bill Bendig's two-run home run, and Andrew Ordille scattered four hits in going the distance for the victory.
Zack Vogelei singled in two runners in a three-run fifth inning rally, and Middle Township added two more runs in the sixth to complete its 6-2 comeback win at Lower Cape May.
Olympic. Zach Ellen roped a walk-off double with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning, helping host Cherokee outlast Lenape, 4-3.

Jake Danner launched a two-run home run over the fence in left-centerfield in finishing with two hits and four RBIs, and Zach Funk also homered as GCIT crushed host Clayton, 12-2.
Matt Miniconzi drove in two runs, Frank Angeloni scored three times, and reliever Jay Smith induced a double play and a pop-up in the seventh to cement Highland's 6-2 home win over Gloucester.

Tom Jakubowski hit a grand slam in driving in five runs, and Zach Moran roped a three-run double for West Deptford, which scored nine times in the second inning en route to an 11-1 win at Haddon Heights.
James Bickel made eight saves in shutting down host Cherry Hill West over the final three quarters, and Shawnee, ranked No. 8 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, found plenty of offense in running away to an 18-2 win in the Olympic Conference match.
The Patriot Division-leading Renegades (4-4 overall, 4-0 conference) took a 3-2 lead into the second quarter, before Owen Demmerly (5 goals, 1 assist) got the attack on track.
