Grant Stone threw a two-hitter for Stamford, now 15-2.

Danny Keckler allowed four hits and struck out five for Trumbull, now 15-4 with three losses by one run.

In the second inning, Peter Horn reached on a fielding error and Michael White singled to right.

Shawn Urbano sacrificed the runners up a base and Horn scored on a fielder’s choice grounder.

Simon Whiteman led off the Trumbull third with a single over shortstop and Dustin Sequeira bunted him to second. Stone got a pair of infield grounders to end the threat.

Stamford put a pair of two-out hits together in the fifth only to be denied when a double steal try was thwarted.

With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Chris O’Brien had a pinch-hit single but was stranded on a ground out to third.

Trumbull is back in action at home Tuesday vs Norwalk at 5:30.
