WINDSOR — Alex Bingham picked up the win in Brattleboro’s 14-1 varsity baseball rout of Windsor on Friday. He struck out nine, walked just one and allowed three hits.
“He really settled in after the first inning,” said BUHS coach Chris Groeger, adding that the pitcher gave up a couple of hits against the top of the Windsor lineup in that opening frame. “He had good command of his fastball and was able to mix in his curve. It was a very good effort.”
Jack Pattison, Greg Fitzgerald and Caden Wood all had a couple of hits for the winners, including a two-run homer by Pattison. Zinabu McNeice (3 RBI), Pattison (3 RBI) and Wood (2 RBI) did the majority of the damage for the 6-1 Colonels.
