Baseball: Fairfield American beats Westport in District II final

The Fairfield American 11-12 Little League All-Stars scored five times in the top of the sixth inning to snap a 3-3 deadlock and defeat Westport, 8-3, in the District II final at Unity Field on Saturday.

Jamie Flink’s three-run home run broke the tie in the decisive sixth, before tournament most valuable player Vince Camera added a line-drive, two-run shot to right field to provide the insurance runs.

Prior to that, Westport’s Adam Petro belted a two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie it at 3.

Ian Bentley went 4-for-4 for the Americans, driving in their first three runs via a second-inning double, a third-inning two-out infield single and solo home run with two outs in the fifth.

John Reynolds and Brian Kiremidjian added two hits and one run scored apiece for Fairfield American.

P.J. Egan won the game on the mound for the Americans, firing a complete-game five-hittter and striking out three. Will Eichhorn took the loss for Westport, scattering 11 hits and allowing six runs — four of them earned — before reliever Jimmy Trinkle surrendered the two-run home run to Camera.
