The Hand baseball team improved to 4-1 overall and has a record of 1-0 in the SCC Oronoque Division following a week that saw the Tigers take two of three. Hand posted victories versus Fairfield Prep and West Haven to go with a defeat against Amity sandwiched in between last week.

On April 8, the Tigers defeated Fairfield Prep by the score of 8-6 in a rematch of last year’s SCC Tournament final. Anthony DePino had a single to go with a double, a home run, and two RBI for Hand. Kevin Tracy hit a two-run double that tied the game in the sixth inning, while Will Kleinhenz added an RBI single in the victory. Liam Wallace turned in a quality outing on the mound to help seal the win for Hand.

“Anthony DePino had a huge game for us and got us on the board with a deep home run to left field. He also had the go-ahead RBI double to right-center field,” Head Coach Travis LaPointe said. “Kevin Tracy came up really clutch for us with a game-tying, two-run double in the sixth inning. Liam Wallace was awesome in relief. He shut down a really good Fairfield Prep offense.”

Hand took its first loss of the season by dropping an 8-2 decision against Amity on April 10. George Anastasio collected two hits, and Julian Banerji had a single with a run scored. Aiden Patrick pitched three strong innings of relief for the Tigers.
