Wheeler roundup: Lions falter in seventh, fall to Whippets


WILLIMANTIC, Conn. — Windham clinched the ECC-Small baseball championship scoring two runs in the bottom of the seventh to beat Wheeler High 4-3 Saturday.

Both of the runs off losing pitcher Troy Stefanski were unearned as the Lions committed two errors in the final inning. There was one out when the winning run scored after an errant throw to home plate from the infield.

Windham is 9-7 overall and 8-2 in the league.

Wheeler shortstop Mike Dellaporta was also hit in the face by a bad-hop grounder in the seventh and had to leave the game. Coach Charles Roark said the injury did not appear to be serious.

Wheeler (3-11, 1-8 ECC-Small) had taken a 3-0 lead in the first inning.

Dellaporta singled and Stefanski walked. Dylan Wilkinson brought home Dellaporta with a double. A Chris Munzer single scored Stefanski. Matt Primmett singled to bring home Wilkinson.

Alex Haines was 2 for 2 as the Lions finished with eight hits. Wheeler visits Putnam Monday for a 3:45 p.m. game.
