After holding a strong edge over the first three innings, the New Canaan baseball team found itself down 6-5 Monday following a five-run fourth inning from Stamford, propped up by a Tyler Serricchio grand slam.
The deficit did not last.
The Rams answered immediately with five runs of their own in the home half of the frame and never fell behind again in a 13-6 win at Mead Park. Junior Alex LaPolice collected two hits, as part of a13-hit day for New Canaan (13-5, 11-5 FCIAC). JR Anderson picked up the win on the mound, backed by frequent run support. The Rams scored in each of the first, second, fourth and sixth innings, aided by a home run off the bat of Kane Curtin.
Having won four of its last five contests, New Canaan will conclude its regular season today on the road against Fairfield Ludlowe at 4 p.m.
On Tuesday, the team will begin play in the FCIAC tournament, when it will likely compete in the No.4/No. 5 seed matchup. Should the Rams advance, they will travel to the Ballpark at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport for the FCIAC semifinals on Wednesday.
