Easties Bounce Back

East Haven struggled early. The Easties lost their first five games and gave up at least 10 runs in each.

Then the pitching settled down and they has won six of their last seven, with the latest being an impressive 10-2 victory over Cheshire.

Ace Paul Spadacenta scattered five hits and picked up the win in a 6-2 victory over Branford, which started the turnaround. Spadacenta has been throwing well since.

No. 2 pitcher, sophomore Mike Anastasio, has been improving, and junior Vin Guglietti has returned from a shoulder injury to bolster the rotation. The Easties haven’t given up more than four runs in their last seven games.

Meanwhile, Guglietti has been on a tear to led the offense. He’s hitting .550 with four home runs and 19 RBIs.

“He’s in a zone,” East Haven coach Ray Johnson said about Guglietti. “He’s on another planet right now.”
