STONINGTON — Stonington High managed just four hits and fell to Old Lyme, 7-1, in a nonleague baseball game Friday afternoon.
The Bears led 1-0 on an RBI single by David Rebich in the fourth inning, but the Wildcats responded by taking a 3-1 lead in the top of the fifth.
Rebich also started on the mound for Stonington (3-5), and allowed three runs on three hits in 4⅔ innings. He struck out three and walked none but took the loss.
"We played pretty good defense and Dave Rebich pitched a pretty good game; we just need to get the offense going," Bears coach Bob Cahoone said.
Right-hander Liam Flanagan pitched 5⅓ innings for the Wildcats (5-4). He gave up one run on three hits.
"He was coming inside and mixing his location up," Cahoone said. "He did a nice job. The kid threw strikes — he only walked two people — and kept us off balance most of the day."
Old Lyme pulled away with four runs in the seventh inning.
Stonington next hosts Griswold on Monday at 4 p.m.
