Jack Lindberg did the pitching and Dan Alissi did the hitting to help Hamden defeat Madison 1-0 in the CtEBA 19u Division. Lindberg pitched a complete game shutout, allowing 4 hits and had 4 strikeouts. Dan Alissi got the big hit, an rbi single in the top of the 7th inning. Hamden is 6-4, Madison 9-4. This was the game Willy picked to attend. I told him he picked a dandy and I rewarded him with a nice treat when we got home.
