The Greenwich High School baseball team evened its record to 2-2 by defeating host New Canaan, 9-0, on Wednesday.
The Cardinals, who are 1-1 in FCIAC play, received four hitless innings from sophomore starting pitcher Miles Langhorne.
“He walked two batters in the first inning, but he did a nice job of pitching around those walks and he battled,” GHS coach Mike Mora said. “He settled in and did a nice job in his first outing as a sophomore.”
Langhorne (1-0) struck five and walked four batters to earn the win. Luc Thiebeault and threw two scoreless innings of relief and Zach Karson did not allow a run in one inning of work for the Cards.
Jackson Blanchard doubled in the first inning and scored on Henry Jonokuchi’s double. Danny Perez added a sacrifice fly, giving Greenwich a 3-0 first-inning lead. Shortstop Chris Genaro delivered a three-run double later in the game, making it 6-0.
Sean Pratley and Ian Colalucci each had two hits, while Jackson Blanchard had an RBI.
“I am pleased with the way they are swinging the bats,” Mora said. Our approach is good we are balanced at the plate. This is something we can build off of.”
Pitcher Andrew Jordan took the loss for the Rams. Greenwich hosts FCIAC rival Darien on Friday.
