The game was over, so was the regular season. Neither had ended well for Wilton’s Post 86 Senior American Legion baseball team. An anti-climactic 7-1 loss to Fairfield Post 143 now jeopardized Wilton’s state playoff hopes. Going into the game, Wilton was tied with Westport for the fifth and final Zone 4 tournament slot after stopping a seven-game losing streak with an improbable 7-6 win over league leader Greenwich. Wilton also owned the tie-breaker, having beaten Westport two games to one during the regular season.
