Trumbull's Kraus shuts out Warde baseball on two hits

Bryan Kraus struck out 14 in a complete game two-hitter to pitch Trumbull to a 1-0 victory over Warde in an FCIAC baseball game in Fairfield on Monday.

“This was a classic pitcher's duel with a playoff atmosphere,” Trumbull coach Phil Pacelli after his 2-1 team handed Warde its first loss in five starts. “When Bryan is on the mound we expect to win. We had a lackluster performance as a team in our last game against New Canaan (a 3-0 loss), but Bryan got us the win we needed today.”

Luke Masiuk doubled in Trumbull’s first at bat and Dylan Moran singled him home for the lone run.

Warde’s Zach Broderick, who struck out 11, allowed only one hit in the next six innings.

Roman DiGiacomo and John Heitzman had singles for Warde.
