South Windsor Out of the Gates Quickly

It’s been a team effort thus far for the South Windsor Bobcats baseball team. And with each passing game, South Windsor looks more poised to make a run into the post-season. Through the first 10 games, Nick Nowak was hitting over .450 and was 4-0 on the mound. DJ Linnell was hitting over .425 and won his first game pitching against Rocky Hill. South Windsor is now 8-4. The Bobcats have recorded victories over Conard, Westhill, Weaver, Fermi, East Lyme, Rocky Hill, Glastonbury, and Windsor. “We’re off to a good start,” said coach Jim Abbott.


The Knights are 9-5 to start off the season. Ellington had a seven-game winning streak that was snapped with a 6-5 loss at Enfield. Victories have come against Granby, Somers, Avon, East Windsor, Tolland, SMSA, Bolton, Portland, and Windsor Locks.


The Eagles are 6-7 overall through the first 13 games. The Eagles had a nice victory over Fermi, which was 6-3 and 3-1 in the league. In that game, junior lefty pitcher Ben Clough tossed a complete game three-hitter with three strikeouts for his third win of the season on the mound. Offensively, Tolland had one of its best games of year, scoring 11 runs on 12 hits. The team has struggled to score runs all season, but is hopefully turning the corner with a few better games recently.


The Rockville baseball team is 4-6 overall. The Rams have big wins over Tolland and RHAM so far this season. Rockville still has eyes set on qualifying for the state tournament. In order for that to happen though, the Rams will need to try and find some consistency. They need some of the seniors to step up in big game situations. There is no on aspect of the game or any one player that will dominate a game. In order to be successful going forward, Rockville needs to collectively perform well. However, the boys are battling every day.
