The bats returned for Fairfield Warde baseball, which got off to its best start in school history before dropping three in a row. The defensive issues that have plagued Fairfield Ludlowe all season, also keep rearing their head for the Falcons. Warde scored a whopping 11 unearned runs off five Ludlowe errors, as the Mustangs pounded the Falcons 14-6 under the lights at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport on Thursday.
Just a day after getting blanked by St. Joseph, the Warde bats did plenty of damage early. The Mustangs staked out a 14-0 lead after five innings. Warde was backed up by a fine outing by starter Dan Warren, who struck out six. The Mustangs hurler was left in an inning too long, though, giving up all six of Ludlowe's runs in the bottom of the sixth. Luckily, Warde's early offensive surge was enough of a cushion.
Warde scattered 15 hits on the day, led by James Neamonitis. Warren helped his own cause at the plate with two RBIs.
