Spartan Teammates surround Pat Winkel after his first inning home run.

On Wednesday, May 24, the Amity Spartans Baseball team met the East Haven Yellowjackets for the first time this season for the SCC Semifinal game in West Haven.

The Spartans wasted no time in dominating this game. Pat Winkel hit a 3 run homer, then Adam Hurwitz hit a one-run single followed by Matt Sabitsky’s one run single. Amity even had a player win a rundown between third and home and score to everyone’s surprise. and that was just the first inning. Amity 6-0

In the second inning, Rohan Patel hit a two-run double. Amity 8-0. The Spartans brought in two additional runs in the third and in the fourth, Colin Beaulieu’s one-run single capped it for the game at 11-0.

Number 1 Amity (20-2) will face #2 Fairfield Prep (18-4) for the third time this year, for the SCC Championship, tentatively scheduled for this evening at 6:30 p.m. at Piurek Field in West Haven.

NOTE: The weather will most likely postpone the game. On Friday Amity’s Senior Prom is scheduled — and half the team members are seniors this year — so, the game probably won’t be on Friday.

We are waiting for official word, but the game most likely will take place on Saturday afternoon. (The Softball semifinals have been postponed until Saturday at 1 p.m.)

Orange Live will update when we get word of any changes.
