West Haven Captures 2021 CCBL Title

Heading into Championship Sunday for the CT Collegiate Baseball League at East Catholic High School on August 1st, 2021, the Manchester Mavericks (3-0 in the double elimination tournament) faced the West Haven Sailors (3-1).  Manchester took a winner's bracket game against West Haven earlier in the tournament.  So, in the double elimination format, West Haven had to beat Manchester twice to take the league crown. The Sailors did so by winning Game 1 (2-0) and Game 2 (7-1).  Winning the CCBL Championship was a first for the West Haven Sailors, as it was their inaugural season in the league.

Game 1 saw solid pitching on both sides and timeline hitting by West Haven to force the winner take all elimination game.  Matt Wooten started the game and pitched 5 solid innings giving up one hit, walking four, and striking out 5.  In the 6th he handed the ball over to Aidan Ricciardelli who shut the door to earn the save with 2 solid innings giving up 1 hit and striking out 4.  Rob Olah for West Haven, the cleanup hitter, had a monster day overall, but was just getting started in Game 1 going 2-3 with an RBI single in the first inning scoring Phoenix Billings and a Solo HR in the fourth accounting for both RBI in the game.  Matt Solomon and Jason Ostrowski both doubled for the West Haven Sailors.  Pressemetron battled on the mound for Manchester throwing 5 innings giving up only 4 hits, 3 walks, striking out 2.  Manchester threatened in the top of the 7th with a one out double off the bat of Motyka, but Ricciardelli induced a ground out and line out to end the Game 1 affair.  Smith got the lone hit off Wooten and Montas had two walks in the game for Manchester.  

Game 2 saw West Haven come right out of the gate to take a 6-0 lead heading into the 4th.  In the bottom of the first inning, Phoenix Billings led off with a single. Jared Keller walked, and Harrison Feinberg was HBP to bring up Rob Olah who on the first pitch he saw hit a Grand Slam over the left centerfield fence for West Haven to take a quick 4-0 lead.  In the second inning Rob Olah got an RBI on a bases loaded walk and in the third Jason Ostrowski hit a Sac Fly to make it 6-0.  Manchester scored a run in the top of the 4th on a throwing error and West Haven added an insurance run in the bottom of the 6th on a force out grounder hit by Olah to round out the scoring.  For West Haven, Phoenix Billings went 2-3 with 2 runs and a walk, Feinberg went 1-2 with a walk and run, DJ Caron and Matt Solomon both went 1-3 while Olah had the big day going 1-2, with 6 RBI, a run scored, and a walk.  For Manchester, Wearne, who played an impeccable third base all day, went 2-3 with Montas scoring the lone run after walking in the 4th.  On the mound West Haven Sailors starter Eddie Zanor pitched a complete game surrendering 2 hits, one unearned run, walking three and striking out 6 to bring home the championship for the West Haven Sailors.
