High school roundup: After winning protest, Montville baseball wins the game
Waterford - Jordan Zeppieri hit a game-winning two-run single with two outs in the top of the sixth inning as the second-ranked Montville High School baseball team rallied to beat No. 4 Waterford 7-6 Wednesday in the completion of an Eastern Connecticut Conference Medium Division game.
Montville coach Phil Orbe protested the game April 29 when the umpires refused to let a player re-enter to bat with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth.
Waterford won 5-4, but the Eastern Connecticut Conference protest committee unanimously sided with Orbe and ordered the game to be resumed from the point of the protest.
Zeppieri drove in Rohan Parekh and Steve Rogers scored for the Indians (13-1, 6-1). TT Bowen added an RBI single to push Montville ahead 7-5.
Stan Kesilewski earned the win and Buddy Dewaine got the save.
Tom Pezzolesi doubled in the bottom of the sixth and scored on Seth Hoagland's single for Waterford (12-3, 6-2).
