Norwalk's baseball team picked up its most impressive victory of the season Wednesday with an 8-4 victory over previously undefeated Staples. Spencer Jacoby picked up the win for the Bears and led the offense with three hits, including a home run, and three RBIs.
The Bears (4-5 overall, 4-4 FCIAC) had lost four of their last five games. Mike Parlanti had two hits and scored three runs. John Lauttenbach relieved Jacoby in the sixth, and James Cooksey got the final five outs for Norwalk. Outfielders Tommy Sullivan and Matt Ederle made strong defensive plays to help Norwalk, and Ederle added two hits and two RBIs.
Norwalk looks to keep the momentum going Friday when it travels to Fairfield Ludlowe. The Bears play at home Saturday at 3:30 p.m. against Greenwich.
