AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL: North Haven edges South Windsor in 12th inning of play-in tournament game

As the American Legion state tournament began, there was one glaring difference for all the teams involved. Instead of playing the normal seven innings, teams would have to adjust to playing nine innings.

Two innings made all the difference in the world for the North Haven Post 76 baseball team.

Trailing No. 36 South Windsor (Zone VIII) by one run after seven innings of play, North Haven got the equalizer in the eighth and won the game 4-3 on Jake DeRosa’s single in the 12th inning of an American Legion state tournament play-in game Saturday at DeMayo Field in North Haven.

AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL: Orange keeps pace in battle for Zone II supremacy

There has been quite a battle raging between the Orange, Branford, Milford and East Haven American Legion baseball teams for the top spot in Zone II.

Nick Fusco led Orange to a state tournament-qualifying 2-0 victory over Stratford on Wednesday night to improve Post 127's record to 14-3. Branford is right behind at 14-4 while Milford and East Haven both were at 13-5 entering Thursday's games.

Milford's Cody Hadden fired a complete-game one-hitter with 10 strikeouts to lead Post 196 past Hamden on Tuesday night.

In another recent game, Orange ace Mike Concato shut down North Haven Post 76 and East Haven closed in on a tournament berth with a 7-2 win over West Haven.
