Last year in the regular season Trumbull had a chance to derail Greenwich‘s unbeaten season with the winning run on second base in the seventh inning but could not get him home.
The Cardinals rallied for 9 runs in the 8th inning to win that one but the Eagles got their revenge less than a month later when they handed Greenwich it’s first loss of the year in the FCIAC championship game at Harbor Yard.
The two teams are once again at the top of the FCIAC standings with Greenwich (12-1 FCIAC) curently in first and Trumbull (10-3 FCIAC) sitting in fifth place as the two lock talons again Wednesday in Greenwich at 4 p.m.
“I expect a pretty low scoring game because they are going to throw a good pitcher at us and we are going to throw a good pitcher at them,” Greenwich Coach Mike Mora said. “They are a solid team and have a lot of guys back from last year. We are expecting a battle with a playoff atmosphere.”
Trumbull dropped a 1-0 game to St. Joe’s Saturday at Harbor Yard, lost to New Canaan early in the season and dropped an extra-inning game to McMahon.
Greenwich’s lone FCIAC loss came at St. Joe’s.
Some of the league’s best players will be on display with Trumbull sporting James DeNomme behind the plate, Casey Mack at third and pitchers Gerard Spiegel and Colin Keyes.
Greenwich has Taylor Olmstead in right, pitchers Ryan Marks, Kyle Dunster and J.T. Hintzen and second baseman Vincent Ferraro.
Both teams will make the playoffs but it will serve both well to face quality teams coming down the stretch.
Come on down to Greenwich if you have the chance and it does not rain Wednesday.
