Ludlowe Baseball: Ludlowe Loses Tough Game To Danbury

Ludlowe fell 3-2 to Danbury on Friday afternoon.

Coming into the game, Ludlowe and Danbury were tied for 6th in the FCIAC, with a 7-4 conference record. The win for the Hatters puts them in a very good position and the loss for the Falcons hurts, but Ludlowe still controls their own destiny.

Ludlowe’s pitching was solid. Stephan Zadravec allowing 3 unearned runs in 5.2 innings. He allowed 8 hits. Victor D’Ascenzo got a big out in the 6th inning to strand two runners on base.

Ludlowe’s bats were pretty much silenced by 3 Danbury pitchers. Ludlowe didn’t pick up their first hit until the 5th inning. Ludlowe scored 2 runs in the 6th but ended up leaving the bases loaded.

In the 7th inning, Ludlowe got the lead off hitter on with a singe, he stole second, but was then picked off by the pitcher on a close call. Ludlowe’s next two hitters were both retired.

Ludlowe fell to 8-6 overall, 7-5 in the FCIAC. It was a tough loss for the Falcons, but they will keep on fighting and working toward an FCIAC playoff spot when they play at home vs Harding on Monday at Kiwanis Field.
