Greenwich edges Ridgefield in FCIAC baseball action, behind impressive pitching from Tommy Passamano

One run in the bottom of the first inning was enough for the Greenwich baseball team to post a victory against Ridgefield on Wednesday.

With junior right-hander Tommy Passamano on the mound, that one run was plenty.

Passamano pitched a four-hitter with three strikeouts over seven highly effective innings in Greenwich’s 1-0 win over Ridgefield at Julian Curtiss School in an FCIAC matchup.

The victory was the third in a row for the Cardinals, who raised their FCIAC record to 4-5 and overall mark to 4-9. Previously, Greenwich was victorious against Darien and New Canaan.

Passamano was economical in this seven innings of work, throwing 73 pitches, 52 of which were for strikes. The Cardinals’ offense came in the first inning, as they had two of their three hits for the game.

Senior Nathan Jones singled and scored on a base hit by senior center fielder Wyatt Gibson, giving Greenwich a 1-0 lead on the Tigers in the bottom of the first inning. The lead held up, as Passamano was in control on the mound the rest of the way.

Junior catcher Cody Baker also had a hit for the Cardinals, who are in action again Friday against visiting Bridgeport Central. In Greenwich’s 4-3 road victory against Darien on Monday, senior Tyler Senft pitched 5 2/3 innings to earn the win. John McHugh, a junior, threw 1 1/3 innings to pick up the save.

Senior second baseman Michael Bocchino had a hit and an RBI, as did Gibson for GHS. Bocchino and junior third baseman Troy Goodwin each hit doubles for the victors.
