Twisters handcuff Crushers for second win

Canton’s Heath Cotton was one of six Crushers with a hit in Thursday night’s 9-2 loss to the Torrington Twisters.

TORRINGTON, June 17, 2021 – Pitchers Kyle Matthews and Jake Reynolds allowed just six hits and struck out 10 batters to lead the expansion Torrington Twisters baseball team to a 9-2 victory over the Canton Crushers Thursday night at Fuessenich Park in Tri-State League action.

Reynolds allowed two hits and fanned six in 3 2/3 innings of relief. Matthews also helped at the plate for the Twisters by going 2-for-4 with two RBI. Twister teammate D.J. Reynolds was 3-for-4 with one RBI as Torrington (2-4) snapped a four-game losing streak with the victory.

Canton starting pitcher Taylor Riley struck out five in five innings of work on the mound.

The Crushers (2-6) had six players with a single hit. Jim Spirito and Mason Goodell each had RBI singles while Riley, Nick Michanczyk, Heath Cotton and Mike Sullivan each had singles for Canton, who have dropped four in a row.

Canton’s game with Amenia on Saturday at Bowdoin Field was postponed because umpires could not be secured for the game. It will be rescheduled.

The Crushers return to action on Thursday when they travel to Amenia, N.Y., to face the Monarches (6-1) at historic Doc Bartlett Field beginning at 7 p.m.
