I made a solo trip to Orange Monday night - Madison was visiting Orange in a Senior Legion(19u) Battle.
When the smoke cleared, Madison came away with a 10-6 victory.
Madison started quickly scoring 3 runs in the 1st without a hit - 4 walks and an error. They added a run in the 3rd on an rbi infield out from Matt Carone.
Madison made it 8-0 with 4 runs in the 4th on just 2 hits.
But Orange responded with 5 runs in the 4th, rbis from John Turski and Ben Daddio.
Madison scored single runs in the 6th and 7th and Orange scored a run in the bottom of the 7th, but Madison held on 10-6.
For Madison - Jeff Pinover had 4 hits and a walk and scored 3 runs, Eli Davies had a single and 3 walks and scored 2 runs, Jack Pireaux scored 3 runs and had 2 rbis, Danny Weinstein had a SAC Fly for an rbi
For Orange - Evan Talnose had 2 hits and scored 2 runs, and Justin Zamkov had an rbi
Madison is 8-2, Orange is 3-5
Tuesday's Schedule - North Haven at Branford, Wallingford at Madison, Hamden at West Haven
I will be heading to West Haven - Hamden - West Haven is a great game in any sport
I expect nothing less on Tuesday - Hamden(5-4) at West Haven(4-2)
