SCC Baseball Tournament Predictions

Register baseball beat writer Chris Hunn's predictions for this week's Southern Connecticut Conference tournament...


No. 2 Law vs. No. 7 Shelton at Quigley Stadium, 4 p.m.: The Gaels are one of the few teams that have been able to score runs against the Lawmen. But Law can score too. Law's pitching and defense, which hasn't allowed more than three runs in their last seven games, is the difference in this one.
Pick: Law

No. 1 West Haven vs. No. 8 Cheshire at Quigley Stadium, 7 p.m.: The Rams have been crushing the ball. The Westies dropped their last three. Is an upset in the works? No. West Haven has something to prove again and way too much talent not to break this slump.
Pick: West Haven

No. 3 Amity vs. No. 6 Notre Dame-West Haven at West Haven, 4 p.m.: A rematch of last year's conference championship, which the Green Knights won. Amity is without their ace Joe Ciancola and though Notre Dame struggled late in the season, a strong offense leads them to a win in this one.
Pick: Notre Dame-West Haven

No. 4 Foran vs. No. 5 Branford at West Haven, 7 p.m.: Winners of eight straight, the Lions are perhaps the hottest team in the state. To help matters, they open the tournament with the weakest team in the field.
Pick: Foran


No. 1 West Haven vs. No. 4 Foran: If West Haven coach Mike Anquillare decides to hold ace Tom Lawrence for this game, West Haven has a shot. If not, West Haven is in trouble without a strong No. 2 option on the mound. Meanwhile, Foran essentially has two aces in Brian Ward and Joe Michaud so they get the edge.
Pick: Foran

No. 2 Law vs. No. 6 Notre Dame-West Haven: These two teams split in the regular season. But this Notre Dame squad doesn't appear to be the same one that beat the Lawmen 13-4 early in the year. Winning seven of their last eight and crushing the Green Knights 12-3 in the midst of the streak, the Lawmen have the momentum.
Pick: Law


No. 2 Law vs. No. 4 Foran: Pitching is when gets these two Milford schools to the title game. Neither of these teams have won a SCC title. But there is a first time for everything. Law swept the season series, edging Foran twice. Not this time.
Pick: Foran
