Watch live: Wilton baseball in FCIAC playoffs

Less than two weeks after playing one of the most exciting games of the regular-season, the Wilton and Norwalk baseball teams meet again today, Tuesday, May 26, in a higher-profile contest: The Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference quarterfinals.

The game, which takes place at City Hall (or Malmquist) Field in Norwalk, can be heard live on HAN Radio and is also available for purchase as a live video stream through NFHS. The HAN Network will have live coverage of the FCIAC baseball semifinals and finals.

Norwalk (15-5 overall, 14-4 FCIAC) is seeded fourth and Wilton (15-5, 13-5) is seeded fifth in the eight-team conference playoff field. The winner of today's game advances to face either top-seed Darien or eighth-seed Stamford in the FCIAC semifinals on Wednesday at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport. Those games, along with the championship will also be carried live by HAN with video and online radio, which plays on and at

When the teams met at City Hall Field on May 15, Norwalk came away with a 4-3 win in eight innings. The winning run in that game scored on a Wilton throwing error.

That victory turned out to be significant, as it ultimately gave Norwalk the fourth seed (and a home game) in the opening round of the playoffs.

For most of the regular season, the Warriors appeared headed for a top-four seed and a home game in the FCIAC quarterfinals. Behind the pitching of J.T. Morin, Jackson Ward and Trevor Blond, Wilton got off to a 10-1 start, which featured an eight-game winning streak.

But the Warriors then took a detour, losing four of their next six games, including a three-game losing streak to three of the FCIAC's other top teams (Darien, New Canaan and Norwalk).

Wilton regrouped, though, winning its final three-regular season games to clinch a conference playoff berth.

Norwalk, meanwhile, won 15 of its first 18 games before ending the regular-season with losses to Staples and Darien last week.

Both teams are expected to pitch their aces today, with Morin starting for Wilton and Mike Gonzalez taking the mound for Norwalk.
