Avon loses another close contest to Windsor; Coventry blanks Canton in five innings

Avon catcher Ryan Ollestad had a double — one four hits for the Falcons in a 4-0 loss to Windsor on Friday.

WINDSOR, May 11 – The Avon High baseball continues to play tough but it isn’t enough to pick up victories. Pitcher Connor Harris gave up just four hits and struck out eight but three of Windsor’s four hits were extra-base hits in a 4-0 victory over the Falcons Friday.

Avon (3-11) has lost four straight games while Windsor (12-2) remained the top ranked team in the unofficial CIAC Class L playoff rankings.

The Falcons had just three hits in the game, led by Ryan Ollestad with a double. Gage Doorman and Miles Borenstein had singles for Avon.

Windsor took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on Jeremy Nunes’ two-run double – the third of three consecutive hits for the home team. Harris gave up just one hit in his final five innings of work.

Windsor made it 3-0 in the fifth thanks to a pair of errors and a hit batter. Jaylen DesJesus’ home run in the sixth inning extended the lead to 4-0.

Avon returns to action on Monday when they travel to Glastonbury for a 3:45 p.m. contest. The Falcons play four games in five days next week with a game at Wethersfield on Tuesday, Bristol Central on Wednesday at Muzzy Field in Bristol and a game against Simsbury on Friday at 3:45 p.m. at Buckingham.
