McMahon Runs into Red-Hot Greenwich, Falls 4-0

NORWALK, Conn. – Brien McMahon High School’s baseball team received the first blemish to its once perfect conference record Wednesday, running into the stellar starting pitching of Greenwich’s Casey Gaynor.

The Cardinals’ pitcher gave up just one hit in six innings pitched, as Greenwich came away with the victory in a battle of unbeaten teams, 4-0.

UConn-bound Bryan Daniello pitched a solid game for the Senators , but Greenwich’s Taylor Olmstead had the righty’s number all afternoon. Olmstead provided all the offense Greenwich needed with an RBI single in the third and a towering RBI triple in the fifth.

“[Gaynor] is the hardest thrower we've seen all year. He’s a great pitcher,” McMahon manager John Cross said. “And they made some great defensive plays and we made some errors. That was the difference in the ballgame. They’re a great team.”

Gaynor did have some command problems, walking four batters, but McMahon could not take advantage. Ricardo Torres grounded out when McMahon got its only runner to third and Mike Giordano hit into a 4-6-3 double play the only time the Senators had more than one base runner aboard. Dennis Warfield had the only hit off Gaynor on a bloop single in the fourth.

A crucial error put McMahon deeper in the hole, as two runs scored off a throwing miscue in the third inning. Greenwich, meanwhile, provided near-perfect defense behind Gaynor.

“They've got a great pitching staff and you have to bring your A-game when you go up against them. They just beat us,” Cross said.

McMahon (6-2, 6-1 conference) will play a conference game out-of-state for the third time of Cross’ tenure, as the Senators head to Cooperstown, N.Y., Friday to take on Fairfield Warde.
