Behind a gutsy performance by Mitch Zagrodnik and a timely triple play the P38s got past Bristol 6-2. With the bases loaded and nobody and the tying run at the plate, Zagrodnik got a line drive that shortstop Stanly Rijo snagged, stepped on second and threw over to Roberto Santiago at first base to complete the triple play and end the Bristol threat. Evan Shortsleeve had two RBI and Rijo and Santiago each added an RBI in the win. Torrington is 1-3.
Winsted 6, Thomaston 0 >> Adam Piechowski pitched a complete game two hitter with 13 strikeouts. Winsted scored all six runs in the third inning with consecutive singles by Drew McCarthy (2-3), Charlie Putnam, Ben Schumacher (3-4 SB), Joe Kondrates (2-4 two RBI) and Mike Huber. Winsted improves to 2-5. Thomaston starting pitcher, Jesse Vermecca went five innings striking out six. Thomaston is 1-6.
