Greenwich, Spa Catholic Continue to Roll

While the perception is that it’s still early in the baseball/softball season, the reality is many Wasaren clubs have a third of their regular season schedule already in the books.

The baseball teams from Greenwich and Saratoga Catholic have played six contests thus far, and both have posted victories every time out, each adding a “W” on Saturday which by far provided the best weather conditions of the spring.

April wins count the same as May victories and the Saints and Witches 6-0 starts are impressive runs whether it’s early, late or somewhere in between.

Here’s a closer look at how Saturday’s game played out.

Saratoga Catholic 17  Cambridge 0

Winning Pitcher:  Dante Marin  4 IP  1 Hit  0 Runs

Hitting Stars:  Saints – Kaden Learch 3-3, 2B, 4 RBI’s     Nick Winslow 3-3, 2 2B’s, 3 RBI’s     Tyler Haraden 2-4, 2B, 3 RBI’s     Dylan Custer 2-5, RBI

Another day, another “W” for the Saints following the blueprint they’ve played to most of the spring. Get quality pitching, on this day limiting Cambridge to one hit, and offensively run out a lineup that pounds the baseball, hitters one thru nine.  That lineup ripped 14 hits on Saturday in just four innings of work as the Saints rolled to their sixth straight win.  

 

Greenwich 11  Warrensburg 3

Winning Pitcher:  Alex Curtis 4 IP  1 ER

Hitting Stars:  Witches – Carson Mosher 2 2B’s, 3 RBI’s       Cole Burgess 2 RBI’s      John Walsh 2 RBI’s

The Witches led 10-1 after three, and rode the combined efforts of freshman Alex Curtis and 8th grader Jesse Kuzmich who picked up the save in three innings of relief, to their sixth win in as many outings.
