Connecticut HS Spotlight Game: Amity vs Jonathan Law

WOODBRIDGE, CT - Amity’s starter, Ben Lodewick, went a full seven, including taking a perfect game bid into the sixth, as the Spartans picked up their fifth win of the year, a 4-3 decision at home over Jonathan Law.

“Ben pitched well; he threw well … unfortunately, we had a little mistake at the plate which allowed them back in the game but sometimes these [games] build character,” Amity head coach Sal Coppola said.

Lodewick tossed seven frames, allowing four hits and three runs (one earned) with three walks and six strikeouts to collect the win. He threw 112 pitches, 70 of them which went for strikes.

Amity picked up seven hits in the game, while the Jonathan Law bats drew four. Cole Kuchachik had two hits and an RBI for the Spartans and star catcher Pat Winkel got a hit and scored two runs. Winkel is now six hits shy of the state record.

Law’s Carl Maxwell had an RBI and leadoff hitter Dillon LaRoche struck just one hit in four plate appearances. The Lawmen are now 5-5 on the season, having yet to face league competition.

Amity is 5-2 on the year. Without guys like Andy and Teddy Hague, now at UConn and Yale Baseball, respectively, and Max Scheps, Coppola knows this season’s team feels quite a bit different. However, he still has the same goals in place year after year.

“There’s a different makeup to this team, for sure,” Coppola said. “This year, more than any other year, it’s our pitching. We need to solidify our pitching and then we’ll be okay. So far, so good. We’re just trying to get better as the year goes on.”
