Wilton All-Stars win district opener, 13-3

The Wilton Little League 11/12-year-old All-Star team began District 1 pool play with a 13-3 victory over Stamford Springdale on Thursday in Stamford.

Wilton blasted three home runs while rallying from an early 3-0 deficit.

Dean DiNanno hit a grand slam for Wilton, which also got a three-run homer from Kyle Hyzy and  a two-run homer from Richard Nolan.

Trailing 3-2, Wilton erupted for 11 runs in the bottom of the third inning. The game was then stopped due to the run rule when Springdale did not score in the top of the fourth.

Nolan, who came on in relief of DiNanno in the second inning, pitched 2.1 scoreless innings to earn the win.

Wilton plays its second Pool A contest on Saturday when it meets host Ridgefield at 11 a.m. at Fitzgerald Field.
