FRIDAY BASEBALL: Sheehan rebounds, rebuffs Cheshire; Maloney racks up another come-from-behind special

CHESHIRE — After letting a quick 3-0 lead get away on a windy Friday afternoon, the Sheehan baseball team regained the upper hand with two runs in the sixth inning and one more in the seventh to pin a 6-3 SCC Hammonasset decision on Cheshire at Burt Leventhal Field.

A couple of Cheshire errors and a sacrifice fly by Sheehan senior Anthony Romano broke a 3-3 tie in the sixth. Nate Cerasale singled home Joe Amarone to seal it one inning later.

It was the second RBI base hit of the game for Cerasale. Joe Mikulski also had two hits and two RBI for Sheehan.

The late surge earned the win for Todd Grammatico, who pitched four innings of relief to improve to 4-0.

The Titans are now 6-4, the record they’ll take into Monday’s rivalry bout with Lyman Hall.

Cheshire fell to 2-8. Luke Raccio (sacrifice fly), Anthony Tirado (single) and Ian Wirtz (fielder’s choice) had the RBIs for the Rams.

Maloney 8. Bristol Eastern 6: Score another one for the Comeback Kids of Maloney.

Down 4-1 to the host Lancers, the Spartans closed the deficit to one with a pair of runs in the fourth inning, then erupted for five runs in the fifth to take the lead for good.

Evan Cordero ripped a run-scoring single and Raff Rodriguez followed with a 400-foot triple to score two more runs in that pivotal fifth inning.

Two-out RBI hits by Ryan Killeen and Joe Rodriguez delivered the runs in the fourth inning.

Killeen and Kam Hartenstein both went 3-for-4 to fuel Maloney’s 14-hit attack. 

Rodriguez and Jack Fitzgerald both had two hits.

Starter Evan Avery pitched 5 1/3 innings and earned the win.

Sam Giacco came on in relief in the sixth and got two crucial outs to defuse a bases-loaded jam.

Hartenstein closed it out in the seventh and the Spartans returned home at 7-2.

Bristol Central 12, Platt 2: The Panthers were held hitless in dropping the CCC South crossover in Bristol to the Rams.
