Wheeler roundup: Lions lose in extra innings


N. STONINGTON — A 2-1 third-inning lead did not hold up and the Wheeler High baseball team fell to Tourtellotte Memorial 4-2 in eight innings in Tuesday’s ECC Small Division game.

Tourtellotte (4-10, 2-6 ECC-Small) scored two runs in the top of the eighth inning — one on a misplayed bunt and another on a passed ball.

Wheeler (3-9, 1-6 ECC-Small) loaded the bases in the bottom of the eighth inning with only one out, but a flyout and a groundout ended the game.

The Lions trailed 1-0 in the middle of the second inning, but tied the score in the bottom of the frame.

Chris Munzer doubled to lead off the inning and Andy Rauch tied the score with an RBI single.

Troy Stefanski put Wheeler up 2-1 on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the third. The 2-1 advantage held up until the Tigers tied the score in the top of the fifth.

Kevin Knowles went 4 for 4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

Stefanski pitched seven innings, allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits, walked five and struck out eight.
