Spring break hardly gave the Weston High varsity baseball team any rest, but that proved to be no problem the Trojans won all three of last week’s games.
Weston visited Pomperaug on Monday, April 15. Senior Charlie Ameer pitched an impressive seven innings yet again, carrying the team to a 2-1 victory. He struck out 11, walked only one, and allowed only two hits resulting.
The Trojans’ offense was concentrated in one inning. Both runs came in the top of the second.
A groundout by Greg Kaeser brought in Ameer and an RBI single by Adam Parks scored Tyler Hassett. Pomperaug’s lone run came in the third inning.
Weston moved on to take on the Newtown Nighthawks on Wednesday after already defeating it 2-1 earlier this season. It fared a little better offensively this time around in a 4-1 win that featured both outstanding pitching and batting performances.
Pitcher Asher Lee-Tyson, allowed four hits, one walk, and only one run while striking out four in seven innings. Newtown scored early in the second due to a sacrifice fly by Austin Raftery.
Weston quickly retaliated when Jared Weisman scored on an error at shortstop and Justin Resnick was credited with an RBI. The Nighthawks could not muster up another run while Weston scored twice in the bottom of the fifth when Ethan Lee-Tyson and Charles Ameer came in, and once again in the bottom of the sixth courtesy of Asher Lee-Tyson. Ethan Lee-Tyson also had a notable batting performance, doubling in the sixth.
For their final game of the week the Trojans obliterated Masuk 16-3 on Friday. The game had an explosive start as Ameer hit a home run to bring in Asher and Ethan Lee-Tyson home.
Weston seemed determined to keep the inning going as it scored seven more times before the frame ended. Pitcher Greg Kaeser had an outstanding game as well, throwing the full seven innings, three of which were shutout. He struck out two, walked four, and gave up only one hit.
Kaeser basically kept Masuk out of the game until the fifth and sixth innings when it scored one and two runs respectively. The Trojans came up to dominate once again in the fourth, scoring three more runs, including on an RBI single by Kaeser which plated Ameer.
Weston also scored three in the fifth with the help of an RBI double by Alex McGrath.
Now 6-2 overall, Weston hosts Bethel on Friday, goes to Brookfield on Monday and is at Notre Dame on Wednesday. All games begin at 4:15 p.m.
