Baseball

The Guilford baseball team nabbed its first victory of the season when the Indians defeated Hamden last week. Guilford has a record of 1-5 on the year following last week’s action.

On April 10, Guilford got in the win column by earning an 8-7 victory against Hamden. Jack Palmer went 3-for-3 with two RBI to lead the Indians’ offense. Jake Ciocca and Ethan Vashel added two hits and one RBI apiece. Jack Strand picked up the win on the mound, while Kevin Ciardiello notched the save for Head Coach Brian Hayden’s club.

“We got great production from the bottom of our lineup as they combined for seven hits and four RBI. Jack Palmer, Ethan Vashel, and Jake Ciocca really stepped up today for us,” Coach Hayden said. “This was a total team win. We were able to use our approach on offense, and it produced enough runs to overcome some mistakes we made on defense. I thought Jack gave us a gutsy effort on the mound, and Kevin showed tremendous poise as the game hung in the balance and was able to close the door for our first win.”
