Coginchaug left-hander Kolby Pascarelli allowed 1 hit, walked 2 and struck out 11 in 6 innings, and Griffin Biro got the final three outs as the Blue Devils defeated Old Saybrook 4-0 Monday in Shoreline Conference baseball action in Durham.
Pascarelli, who has committed to play at UConn, won for the second time in two starts. He heaped praise on his fellow senior, the right-hander Biro.
“Everybody underestimated Griffin at a younger age and he’s proved to be a top pitcher in the league,” said Pascarelli. “I am very proud of him and his determination. I think me and him work very well together because we like to mix up our pitches and keep hitters on their toes.”
Connor Willett had 2 hits and scored a run and Jeremy Mangiameli and Jack Konopka drove in a run each for the unbeaten Blue Devils (4-0). Pascarelli, Mike Garofalo and Evan Faiella scored a run each.
Jake Butler took the loss for the Rams in 5 1/3 innings of work.
Noah Hester and Nicholas Scalzo had hits for the Rams (1-4), who were coming off Sunday’s 10-2 win over Portland.
