Norwalk's Cranbury Stars Place Second in Stratford

NORWALK, Conn. – The Cranbury Pinto All-Stars finished second Sunday in the Stratford Baseball Association Carl Burdick Tournament. After winning their first three games, Norwalk-based Cranbury dropped a 15-12 decision to Stratford Red in the title game. The Pinto Division players in Cranbury are 7- and 8-years-old.

In the title game, Stratford scored eight runs in the first inning. Brendan Edvardsen, Peter Rogalski and Mason Carlucci made terrific defensive plays to help stymie Stratford. Cranbury exploded for 10 runs over the second and third innings, including an inside-the-park home run by Konstantino Kodanas. Cranbury also scored five runs in the fifth, but the gallant comeback fell short.

Cranbury had its hitting shoes on from the outset of the tournament.  It defeated Hamden, 17-5, in the opener as Brendan Edvardsen, William Edvardson, Jake Palmer, Dillon Blair, Peter Rogalski, Kodanas, Anastasios Panagiotidis, James Kane and Brendan Gilchrist made key contributions.

A six-run first inning sparked Cranbury’s 16-13 win over Stratford Navy. Palmer and Brendan Edvardsen had RBI triples in the first to spark the attack. Other top hitters included Ryan Gilchrist, Peter Denman, Kaitlyn Geignetter and Rogalski.  Carlucci and Roberts made fine defensive plays.

Cranbury reached the title game with an 18-17 victory over Milford, which jumped on top with 15 runs over the first two innings, but Cranbury answered behind five RBIs by Palmer. Cranbury combined for 14 runs in the second and third innings. William Edvardsen, Roberts and Rogalski were other offensive spark plugs while Kodanas and Brendan Edvardsen made fine defensive plays to shut down more Milford threats.
