Another fast start for Canton nine; Avon wins second straight game

CANTON, April 13, 2022 – For the second consecutive season, the Canton High baseball team is off to a fast start. A year ago, the Warriors won their first six games for the first time since 1976.

On Wednesday, Canton improved to 5-0 with a 9-2 win over Suffield at Bowdoin Field, thanks to a season-high 13 hits and a strong performance on the mound from starter Devin Brown and reliever Tanner Quinn. Brown allowed just five hits over six innings and the two pitchers combined to fan 11 batters.

Canton (5-0, 4-0 NCCC) had four extra bases hits led by Shane Lapointe, who was 3-for-4 with two RBI and a pair of doubles. Jack Biskupiak also doubled.

Brown had a great day at the plate, too, going 3-for-3 with a double and a stolen base. Quinn was 2-for-3 with one RBI while Robbie Dlubac was 2-for-4 with one RBI.

Canton returns to action on Monday when they travel to Wamogo in Litchfield for a non-league game that begins at 3:45 p.m.
