With pitcher Mike Ficaro on the mound for Orange, and Sean Ranz working for New Haven, both teams had a fair share of give and take.

Ficaro limited New Haven to four hits, struck out four and walked two.

New Haven loaded the bases in the third with no joy.

Ranz allowed just four hits, struck out seven and walked two.

In the second inning, Orange’s Rohan Patel managed to walk after two outs.

During the fourth inning a light sprinkle began to fall and the game continued.

The game was scoreless until the sixth inning and Orange came alive when an error, then a series of singles started the cycle that led to the game’s three and only scoring runs.

With that, Orange shut out New Haven 3-0 and improved its record to 9-5.

New Haven’s record is now 5-9.

Tonight Orange (9-5) is at home again, this time, playing against Milford Post 196 (5-7) at 7 p.m.

Orange Roster

If the names on the Orange roster sound familiar, it’s because 11 of the players were on the history-making *2016 Amity Spartans Baseball team — some of them are even wearing their Amity numbers on their Legion uniforms.

*Chase Bursinski (25) outfield/relief pitcher, *Liam Butler (26) pitcher/third base, Lou DeGennero (7) second base/pitcher, Mike Ficaro (4) pitcher/third base, Dan Jaques (18) outfield/pitcher, Dave Kennedy (3) second base/relief pitcher, *Ben Lodewick (45) pitcher/left field, Ronnie LoRicco (6) outfield/pitcher, *Eli Oliphant (16) center field/pitcher, *Rohan Patel (15) pitcher/second base/third base, Doug Rives (22) starting pitcher, *Brian Ronai (8) short stop/starting pitcher, *Max Scheps (21) pitcher, *Al Smith (32) catcher/first base/pitcher, *Mike Stewart (10) pitcher/second base, *Chris Winkel (23) first base, *Pat Winkel (13) catcher.

Even though the first three games were unimpressive, we’re sure the boys will come together and things will pick up very soon. Legion is tough, a short season with lots of double headers — they’ll find their stride.

They have nine upcoming home games on Brinley Field at Old Tavern Park, so come cheer them on.

IMG_6049Orange Post 127’s Doug Rives (22) pitched eight innings, but providing enough offense to notch a victory proved difficult Saturday, as Orange Post 127 fell to Hamden 2-1 in this post season game at Brinley Field.

Mitchell got the win for Hamden. He allowed one run over eight innings. He struck out 12, walked three and surrendered five hits.

Rives ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss.

Hamden closer Rodriguez put away the final three outs to record the save.

The game was never in doubt after the third, as Hamden scored one run on.

In the fifth inning, Orange Post 127 pushed across its only run of the day on an RBI single by Lou DeGennero (3).

Post 127 completed the 2015 season with a 21-10 record.

Thank You boys for the memories and the good sportsmanship you demonstrated throughout the season.
