The Orange Post 127 Baseball Team hosted New Haven at Brinley Field on Monday night.
This is the second time the two have played against one another, the last time was on June 17 in New Haven. Orange won 5-1.
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.
