Milford Blanks New Haven on Wootton 1 Hitter Spring Football in Lvy League

It felt so good to go and watch a baseball game Wednesday night. I made a solo trip to Milford to take in New Haven and Milford on the opening night of the Conn. Elite Baseball Association.

Overall, not a bad game for opening night. Not many hits, lots of strikeouts and plenty of walks.

Milford won the game blanking New Haven 7-0 behind the great pitching of Matthew Wootton. Wootton allowed only 1 hit, an infield single, and struck out 16 for the win. He did walk 5 and hit a batter.

Wootton and 3 New Haven pitchers combined for 29 strikeouts, 13 walks and 2 hit batsman. Milford did manage 5 hits. Richard Carino had a double and sac fly and Calvin Boyd had 2 hits and a run scored for Milford.

It was the only game played Wednesday night as Madison at Wallingford and Orange at West Haven were postponed.

A final decision will be rendered next week.
