Dunster hurls no-hitter for Greenwich legion, Cannons thump Westport 19-0

Lead by Kyle Dunster’s no-hitter, the Greenwich Amercian Legion senior Cannons thumped Westpot 19-0 Saturday.

Dunster has a game to remember against Westport. In seven innings of baseball, the Greenwich starting pitcher gave up no walks in addition to his no-hit performance. He also struck out nine Westport batters.

“I am very proud of Kyle,” Greenwich head coach Mike Abate said. “He was in control of the game from the first pitch. He as getting ahead of batters and was getting big outs. He showed the type of pitcher we’re going to need come state tournament time.”

In addition to Dunster’s no-hitter, Greenwich’s bats came alive, scoring 19 runs. Taylor Olmstead went 3-f0r-4, while Billy O’Malley went 2-for-4 with a double and triple. Nick Kono added two hits. In addition to the two hits, O’Malley flashed some leather for Greenwich, making a diving catch in the seventh inning to keep the no-hitter in check.

“We’ve been struggling this past week with the bats, so it was nice to see them come alive,” Abate said. “We have a lot of good hitters. They weren’t making adjustments. Looks like we are going to get hot at the right time.”

With the victory, kept up with Trumbull and Stamford in the battle for the top spot in Zone IV. Abate said that he’s hoping Dunster’s performance will give the Cannons that extra push to grab the Zone IV championship.

“I hope we ride it for the rest of the regular season,” Abate said. “We have a great pitching staff and defense. Now the bats are coming alive. It’s nice to know we can have all three phases going entering the playoffs.”

The Greenwich senior legion team looks to keep the momentum rolling along with a game this morning against Fairfield at 8:30 a.m.
