Senior Left-Handed Pitcher Tim Martin’s No-Hitter Leads WHS Win Over Danbury
The Wilton High School varsity baseball Warriors pulled out a 1-0 win on Friday night, April 28 against their Rte. 7 rivals, the Danbury Hatters. The Wilton Warriors have been on the opposite end of these shutouts in FCIAC play the last couple of weeks: 1-0 Losses against Norwalk (tied 0-0 after eight) and Stamford (tied 0-0 until the sixth) as well as 2-0 loss at Staples (tied 0-0 until the sixth) had the Warriors looking for their first win in a 0-0 game this season.
Senior Tim Martin did everything he could to make sure that the Warriors had their chance as he combined with his battery mate Stef Cross at catcher to no-hit the Hatters through eight innings of pitching as he had six strikeouts to go along with no outs in a 74-pitch game.
The Warriors led off the first inning with their leadoff hitter Adam Daversa making it to second base as he was hit by a pitch. The Warriors continued to apply pressure, stranding runners in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Wilton’s lone hit of the day came on a pinch-hit appearance by Cooper Matik who doubled to centerfield with one out but was left stranded at second.
In the bottom of the eighth, Wilton led off with walks from Patty Killeen and Michael Fischetti. Martin sacrifice bunted Killeen to third base and Fischetti to second base. Danbury then intentionally walked Max Jarvie to load the bases with one out to bring up senior Sean Lengyel, whose sacrife fly out to the right fielder brought Killeen in to score for the winning run.
