Led by the brilliant pitching of Alex Pedus, West Warwick improved to 10-4 on the year with a 3-0 victory over the Bears of Stonington.

Pedus, who threw only 77 pitches and faced only 24 batters, struck out eight, picked off two runners and did not walk a batter in a complete game effort.

Stonington’s starter Dean Pons was equally impressive, allowing no earned runs and striking out four batters in four innings of work.

In the bottom of the third inning, Kyle DaSilva led off with a walk and move to third when Calvin Batterby’s infield grounder was mishandled. Kyle Kortick, then, hit a sacrifice fly to centerfield to score DaSilva and Battersby scored on Bryan Araujo’s single to right-center.

Defensively, West Warwick received some clutch catches in the last two innings by outfielder Brendan Griffin (pictured). Griffin, who will be a freshman at WWHS, made two diving catches and caught another fly ball for three putouts in the sixth and seventh innings.
