Pitching woes continue for Amity

After today's 5-3 loss to Foran, Amity now stands 2-2. Though early, it's surprising to see the Spartans at .500.

Junior Vin Siena has been absolutely crushing the ball and Nick Baviello, headed to Southern Connecticut State, is also hitting very well. Amity has some hitters.

Coach Sal Coppola said the concern lies on the mound. The Spartans have a very young and inexperienced rotation.

Sophomore Mike Concato struggled against the Lions. His command was off and he was relieved in the fourth by another sophomore Sam Nepiarsky. Amity will need Concato, Nepiarsky, and another sophomore, Max Ritchie to mature quickly. Until then, the Spartans will rely heavily on ace E.J. Ashworth (headed to Fairfield). Also, the Spartans may have to look to closer Mark Esposito to take on a starting role.
