Opening night of Senior Legion play in Zone 2 took me to the Old Tavern Road Complex in Orange. Hamden was taking on Orange in a twinbill.
I took in Game 1 and saw Orange beat Hamden 6-4. Scoreless through 3, Orange broke through with a run in the 4th on a Sac Fly from Steve Cifarelli. Orange added 3 runs in the 5th aided by 2 Hamden errors for a 4-0 lead after 5.
But Hamden roared back with 4 runs in the 6th. The big hit - a 2 run single from Jack Wagner.
But Orange answered with 2 runs in the bottom of the 6th. Justin Zamkov drove in the game winning rbi with a double and Casey Sexton added an insurance run with an rbi single, for the 6-4 final.
Owen Leszczak was the winning pitcher in relief for Orange. Justin Zamkov had 3 hits, scored 2 runs and had the game winning rbi for Orange.
For Hamden, Jake Jovia had 2 hits and scored a run, Malcolm Benton had an rbi and Jack Wagner 2 rbis for Post 88.
